Description: A Mythical Pokémon revived from a fossil, Genesect was given technological upgrades by the infamous Team Plasma. Its insect-like body is mostly purple with many segmented sections, metal augmentations, and alien features. It stands on its hind legs and has a pair of arms that end in light purple points. Its large, red eyes are set on either side of a long, white vent that looks somewhat like a mouth. Most notable, however, is the massive cannon that protrudes from its back, an artificial enhancement grafted on during its resurrection.

Although not much is known about Genesect prior to Team Plasma's upgrades, it is believed to have been a vicious and skilled hunter. These natural instincts have led to the modern day version making full use of its technological enhancements. Capable of folding up its body into a flying-saucer form, known as the High-Speed Flight Configuration, it can fly, and it is also able to produce a sticky thread from its claws to build with. Genesect also can take on different forms depending on which of four drives it is holding. These drives change the type of its signature move: Techno Blast.
