Kyogre (カイオーガ, Kyogre) is a creature in the Pokémon media franchise.


Kyogre is a Water-type Legendary Pokémon and the version mascot of Pokémon Sapphire and, in its Primal form, of Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. Kyogre is categorized within the Pokédex at #382 as the "Sea Basin Pokémon". It is the embodiment of the sea, and its originally unique ability Drizzle is able to summon rain on the battlefield.

Hydro Pump is Water-type move at 120 base power up until Generation V, where it got nerfed to 110 base power starting in Generation VI. Like any other Water-type Pokémon, Kyogre can learn Hydro Pump by leveling up at either Level 90 starting on HeartGold and SoulSilver to X/Y or 75 on Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

As a Poké Ball Pokémon[edit]

Kyogre made its Smash debut in Brawl. When summoned from a Poké Ball, Kyogre starts floating in the air and shooting water from its mouth with Hydro Pump, the same move used by Blastoise in Super Smash Bros. and Super Smash Bros. Melee. While Kyogre's body does damage on contact, the water it shoots just pushes back its targets (like Mario's F.L.U.D.D. and Squirtle's Water Gun) and is useful for stopping recoveries. However, this attack cannot push any player that shielding or hanging on a ledge. Different from F.L.U.D.D. or Water Gun, it's extremely strong and can easily push a character past the blast lines for a KO. Like all other legendaries (except Latias & Latios), Kyogre appears rarely.

Kyogre's trophy in Brawl
A Sea Basin Pokémon. It brought about heavy rains, which formed seas and relieved droughts. It is usually found slumbering at the bottom of an ocean trench. Its attack Sheer Cold is a technique so powerful, it causes any opponent it strikes to faint instantly. In battle, it causes clouds to form and drenches the area in rain. It once fiercely battled Groudon.

Kyogre returns with the same role, now being also able to appear out of the newly introduced Master Ball. Its general function is unchanged, but it moves faster, stays in play longer, and has more KO ability.


Kyogre's trophy appears in both versions. In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U it is part of the Legend of Pokémon Ruby & Pokémon Sapphire Trophy Box.

Kyogre's trophy in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U
NTSC This Water-type Pokémon roughly resembles an orca whale, though its large fins also look a bit like hands. Be wary of its Hydro Pump attack, which is capable of sending you flying off the stage. Even worse, it will chase after you, making it even harder to recover from the attack.
GB Advance: Pokémon Ruby & Pokémon Sapphire (03/2003)
3DS: Pokémon Omega Ruby & Pokémon Alpha Sapphire
PAL This orca-like Water-type Pokémon is known for the distinctive shape of its fins and the red markings along its body. It will use Hydro Pump to send fighters flying off the stage, and then proceed to chase after them to make recovering from the attack a nightmare.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

As a Poké Ball Pokémon[edit]

Kyogre using Hydro Pump in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Kyogre returns as a Poké Ball summon once again, however, Kyogre's Hydro Pump has been greatly enlarged and goes slightly faster than before, with Kyogre lasting on the stage longer than it had in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS. Rather than disappearing suddenly like in previous titles, Kyogre will now fly upwards once finished.

Kyogre cannot be summoned on Arena Ferox, Balloon Fight, Brinstar, Corneria, Dream Land GB, Green Hill Zone, Jungle Japes, Living Room, PictoChat 2, Reset Bomb Forest, Tomodachi Life, Tortimer Island, WarioWare Inc., or Yoshi's Island.


Kyogre, along with its Primal form, also appear as spirits.
