Attack Potency: At least Planet level+, likely higher (Overwhelmed both Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre. Easily superior to even Attack Forme Deoxys, managing to vaporize its body with regular attacks several times) | At least Galaxy level, possibly High Universe level (Vastly superior to its base. Effortlessly destroyed the Grand Meteor Delta, which would completely obliterate the planet. Stomped Deoxys, destroying even its Psycho Boost with no difficulty at all. Should be immensely stronger than Mega Mewtwo X/Y, as its base performed much better against Deoxys than Mewtwo did)

Range: Extended melee range. Planetary with certain moves of various types.

Standard Equipment: None

Intelligence: High, as it knows when balance is endangered, it can communicate with both Groudon and Kyogre, and is attentive to its surroundings of humans and other Pokémon.

Weaknesses: Supposedly Rock, Dragon, Fairy, and especially Ice Type moves. Although it's uncertain how effective they truly are, given that it is paired off in a trio with Pokémon that have ignored aspects of the elemental cycle. Outrage leaves it confused although it will eventually snap out of it. | Apparently only Ice, Dragon, and Fairy Type moves thanks to its ability Delta Stream, which negates its weaknesses on behalf of its Flying Type. The Outrage weakness still applies.

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

  • Air Lock: Eliminates the effects of weather.
  • Delta Stream: Mega only. Affects weather and eliminates all of the Flying Type's weaknesses.
  • Nomad: One of a series of Abilities that appeared in Pokémon Conquest. It raises Rayquaza's attack in proportion to the distance moved.
  • Dragon Ascent: Rayquaza flies high into the air. Its body then becomes outlined in a green aura, and it dives into the opponent with great speed.
  • Ice Beam: Rayquaza fires an icy blue beam of energy that can freeze the opponent. It can also be used to create ice in general and freeze water.
  • Hyper Beam: Rayquaza fires a black and purple beam of energy from its mouth. Unlike most Pokémon Rayquaza lacks the need to recharge afterwards.
  • Dragon Pulse: Rayquaza fires a multicolored beam of dragon-shaped energy at the opponent.
  • Draco Meteor: Rayquaza fires an orange sphere of energy into the sky. The orb then explodes into meteors of energy that come crashing down onto the opponent. Oddly Rayquaza does not appear to suffer the usual special attack drop the move normally causes.
  • Twister: Rayquaza surrounds the opponent in a twister that can cause them to flinch.
  • Scary Face: Rayquaza makes a scary face at the opponent to lower their speed.
  • Ancient Power: Rayquaza manipulates nearby rocks with an ancient power and hurls them at the opponent. This may also raise all of Rayquaza's stats.
  • Crunch: Rayquaza coats its fangs in a dark energy and then crunches its opponent with them. It may also lower their defense.
  • Air Slash: Rayquaza fires off blades of compressed air that have a chance of causing the opponent to flinch.
  • Rest: Rayquaza falls asleep and heals itself back up to peak condition. This leaves Rayquaza asleep for a bit, however.
  • Extreme Speed: Rayquaza charges at the opponent with speed that is normally almost impossible to properly react to.
  • Dragon Dance: Rayquaza performs a mystic and powerful dance to boost its attack and speed.
  • Fly: Rayquaza flies high into the air before diving into the opponent from above.
  • Hyper Voice: Rayquaza lets off an extremely loud roar to damage the opponent. It also bypasses moves like Substitute.
  • Outrage: Rayquaza rampages and attacks for a while. If there are multiple opponents each series of attacks will be directed at a random one. This leaves Rayquaza confused afterwards.
  • Brutal Swing: Rayquaza violently swings its body around with a dark energy to hit everything in its vicinity including allies.
  • Hurricane: Rayquaza wraps the opponent in a fierce wind to deal damage, possibly confusing them. It cannot miss under rain.
