Solgaleo is a Psychic / Steel type Legendary Pokémon.
When using its full power, Solgaleo changes into a special form, the Radiant Sun phase.
Solgaleo resembles a white lion, with red and yellow crystals spread across its mane. The upper half of Solgaleo's face shows a dark blue starry sky contrasted by Solgaleo's light blue eyes. On each of Solgaleo's four legs, there is an orange band and three black toes. On the top of the tail, it is black and oval-shaped surrounded by yellow.
During the Radiant Sun phase, Solgaleo glows bright yellow and white, while a light blue symbol with similar color to its eyes appears on its forehead.
Solgaleo has been honored as an emissary of the sun since ancient times.
Currently, Solgaleo is the only Pokémon capable of learning the move Sunsteel Strike.
