Solgaleo is a Psychic/Steel type Pokémon introduced in Generation 7. It is known as the Sunne Pokémon.

Since ancient times, Solgaleo has been honored as an emissary of the sun. It is referred to with reverence as the beast that devours the sun. Solgaleo's body holds a vast amount of energy, and it shines with light when it's active. It has a flowing mane with a remarkable resemblance to the sun.

It has a powerful signature move, Sunsteel Strike. When it releases its mighty power it takes on a new appearance known as the Radiant Sun phase.
