Rayquaza is a Legendary dual-type flying dragon Pokémon of Generation III. Rayquaza has not been observed to evolve into or from any other Pokémon, but it can mega evolve.

Along with Kyogre and Groudon, Rayquaza leads the weather trio or elemental trio, a protective group of super-ancient Pokémon.

Rayquaza is said to be hundreds of millions of years old. It lives in the upper atmosphere, and is rarely seen by people because it resembles a falling meteor while in flight. It also consumes meteors in order to use their power.
