Cresselia (クレセリア, Crecelia) is a fictional creature from the Pokémon series.


Cresselia is a Psychic-type Legendary Pokémon introducing in Generation IV. It is associated with the crescent moon, and its Lunar Wing possesses the ability to dispel nightmares, in particular the ones caused by Darkrai. In Pokémon Diamond and Pearl and Pokémon Platinum Cresselia can be found on Fullmoon Island, however when interacted with it runs away and has to be hunted down throughout Sinnoh; in later games, however, it is fought as a normal stationary legendary Pokémon.

Psycho Cut is a physical Psychic-type move which Cresselia can learn naturally in every game where both are available. It has 70 base power, 100% accuracy and a increased chance of dealing a critical hit.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

As a stage element[edit]

Cresselia in Brawl.

Cresselia has a chance to appear on the Spear Pillar stage in Super Smash Bros. Brawl when the background has a bluish hue, which usually means that Dialga will appear. Cresselia remains stationary, occasionally attacking with Psycho Cut in two possible ways:

  • radiate from its central position a series of blades.
  • release a single spinning blade which moves around the stage in a boomerang-like fashion.

Trophy information[edit]

The Cresselia trophy in Brawl
A Lunar Pokémon. Cresselia appears on Fullmoon Island and, once discovered, flies around different areas of Sinnoh. Its signature move, Lunar Dance, causes Cresselia to faint but recovers all the HP and cures the status conditions of the next Pokémon its Trainer sends out. Cresselia excels at recovery techniques and is unusual in that it appears only in female form.
