Description: A green, antelope-like Pokémon, Virizion is a Legendary Pokémon and one of the Swords of Justice. It has a light green face and hindquarters and a black blaze that stops at the back of its head. The lower halves of its legs are shaped like boots, mostly green with black toes and topped with pink stripes. It has leafy tufts on its neck, shoulders and rear. Virizion's horns are very wide, smooth and curled at the ends.

Virizion is part of a Legendary quartet of Pokémon known as the Swords of Justice, based on The Three Musketeers. Virizion represents Aramis, the feminine and romantic member of the group. The other three members of the group are Cobalion who represents Athos, the oldest and de facto leader of the group; Terrakion who represents Porthos, the strongest member of the group; and Keldeo who represents d'Artagnan, the young new addition to the group. Having fought alongside the other Swords of Justice in a war against Humans, Virizion cut through its opponents with its razor sharp horns.
