Description: A Legendary Pokémon who forms the Lunar Duo with Darkrai, Cresselia has a roughly Swan shaped body without legs and only the vague shape of wings. She is mostly blue, with a yellow underbelly and face, and pink accents. In addition to pink accents on her forehead and chest, she has pink loops forming wings on her sides and back, as well as pink eyes. She also has a yellow crescent moon-shaped helmet.

Although Cresselia and Darkrai are part of a Legendary duo, she is antagonistic towards the Mythical Dark Pokémon. She has the ability to dispel nightmares, even those caused by Darkrai, and can help heal and recover Pokémon and humans alike. Her feathers bring happiness and pleasant dreams.
