Shoyru logo

The most popular pet species in Neopia is the Shoyru. As of November 2009, over 15 million Shoyrus have been created in Neopia, making nearly 6 1/2 percent of all Neopets.

Shoyru day is the 2nd of April (the month of Eating).


Shoyrus resemble a baby dragon. The first Shoyru design was actually based on the Pokémon Mew, but Nintendo claimed copyright, which caused Neopets to add dragon-like features in order to avoid a lawsuit. However, it now closely resembles a "chibi-fied" version of another Pokémon, Dragonite .

8-BitBaby, Blue, Brown, Camouflage, Checkered, Chocolate , Christmas, Cloud, Darigan, Desert, Disco, Electric, Eventide , Faerie, Fire, Ghost, Glowing , Gold, Green, Grey, Halloween, Ice, Invisible, Island, Jelly, Magma , Maractite , Maraquan, Mutant, Marble, Orange, Origami, Pink, Pirate, Plushie, Purple, Pastel, Rainbow, Red, Relic , Robot, Royal, Shadow, Silver, Sketch, Skunk, Snot, Snow, Speckled, Split, Sponge, Spotted, Starry, Strawberry, Striped, Stealthy, Tyrannian, Toy, White, Woodland, Wraith, Yellow, and Zombie.
