Lugia is a PsychicFlying-typeLegendaryPokémon introduced in Generation II. It is known as the 'Diving Pokémon' and is considered to be closely related to Ho-Oh, considering that they both have riddles involved to obtain and both are trio masters. Lugia is also the master of the legendary bird trio which includes Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres.

How to Obtain

You can obtain Lugia by doing the following:

  1. Talk to the NPC in black at Cinnabar Volcano's PokéCenter.
  • He will also give you a riddle/list as follows:

2. Have these 5 Pokémon in your party and an empty slot in your Party and he will give you Lugia (Possibly Shiny/ Aura/Recolor).

  • If you don't get a shiny/ aura/Recolor, just leave the game and rejoin until you get a shiny/ aura. You can also do this trick with all of the NPC-given Pokémon.

Lugia can also be obtained from trading and the Pokémon Roulette.

The code: 'Shadow' gives a Shadow recolor Lugia. (Please note that the code has now expired.)
