Victini

Victini is a small, rabbit-like Pokémon with large, pointed ears which form the letter V. It has large, blue eyes and a round, cream-coloured head. It has two cream winglike tails, which allows it to fly. Though timid, it is a caring Pokémon; it will fight if its friends are in danger.

Victini is said to bring victory to the Trainer that befriends it. It produces an infinite amount of energy within itself and can share it with others by touch. It can also become invisible and can send visions to people. It has been shown to enjoy eating macarons, although it sometimes chokes on them. Victini is the only known Pokémon that can learn Searing Shot.

In the Super Smash Bros. games, Victini appears as a Poké Ball Pokémon, after playing 100-Man Smash at least once. In Ultimate, when summoned, it gives the summoner their Final Smash with Victory Star. It also appears as a Spirit.

Victini was an event Pokémon in the games Black and White, so I immediately jumped on that to receive it. It became part of my team with it's helpful typing of Psychic-Fire.

Victini's appearance looks to be based on usagi-ringo, a method of cutting apple slices to make them look similar to rabbits. Conceptually, it might draw inspiration from Nike, the Greek goddess of victory, or Victoria, the Roman equivalent of Nike. Its tail wings may be a reference to Nike's wings.

It's cute and a small Pokémon which is why it became the mascot of Black and White. Its theme of "V" could be linked to it being somewhat to the fifth Generation, "V" being the Roman numeral for 5. "V" could also derive from the initial for victory.
