Zygarde

Zygarde is a Dragon/Ground type Pokémon introduced in Generation 6. It is known as the Order Pokémon.

Zygarde is a snake-like legendary Pokémon. Its ability Aura Break counters the effects of the abilities of Xerneas and Yveltal.

It was later revealed that Zygarde as seen in Pokémon X & Y is in fact an alternate Forme. Zygarde has five different Formes in total:

  • Zygarde Cell are single cells that make up Zygarde. They cannot use any moves.
  • Zygarde Core is part of Zygarde's brain, and they are known to take action when the ecosystem changes.
  • Zygarde 10% Forme occurs when Zygarde Core gathers 10% of the Cells nearby. Capable of travelling over 60mph.
  • Zygarde 50% Forme occurs when Zygarde Core gathers 50% of the Cells nearby. This is the standard form.
  • Zygarde Complete Forme is the perfect form, which is more powerful than Xerneas and Yveltal. Zygarde takes this form when the ecosystem is under threat.
