Flygon (Japanese: フライゴン Frygon) is a dual-type Ground/Dragon Pokémon.

It evolves from Vibrava starting at level 45. It is the final form of Trapinch.

Biology

Physiology

Flygon is a large, light green, insect-like dragon Pokémon. Flygon's tail has several dark green stripes and three green rhombus shapes at the end. Flygon has a pair of green rhombus-shaped wings, toeless hind legs and three-clawed hands. Flygon has red-lensed "goggles" covering its eyes and a pair of green antennae.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Aside from being able to kick up sandstorms, Flygon's other ability is Levitate, which allows it to avoid Ground attacks such as Earthquake or Magnitude. Its wings also seem to be "singing" when they are flapped, because Flygon's type is Dragon, it gains access to Template:Type2 moves just like its Pre-evolution, Vibrava.

Also like Vibrava, Flygon also gains access to the most powerful Dragon-type move, Draco Meteor.

Behavior

This dragon Pokémon is highly adapted to life in the desert. It's also known as "the spirit of the desert" due to the sound its wings make in sandstorms. When it flaps its wings, it inadvertently kicks up a cloud of dust, which serves to protect it from potential enemies. Its eyes are covered with thick lenses, which prevent particles of sand from disturbing its vision. The flapping wings create a very unusual "singing" sound. Because this sound is usually heard in the presence of sandstorms, it was thought that this Pokémon was the spirit of the desert.

Habitat

Although Flygon are hard to find in the wild, they are often seen in deserts punished by harsh sandstorms, often caused by themselves. Most Flygon belong to trainers, mainly from evolved Vibrava, either caught in the wild or previously evolved from a Trapinch.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

In the anime

Drew's Flygon

Flygon first appears in a flashback of a Pokémon Coordinator in Delcatty Got Your Tongue?.

Another Flygon was in Jirachi: Wish Maker. It helped save Jirachi from Butler.

Drew's Flygon made its debut in Rhapsody in Drew.

A Flygon also appeared in Giratina and the Sky Warrior.

Pokédex entries

Episode Pokémon Source Entry
AG123 Flygon Ash's Pokédex Flygon, the Mystic Pokémon. Flygon is the evolved form of Vibrava. It's known as the desert spirit because of the song-like voice that eminates from the sandstorms it kicks up.
This concludes the entries from the Advanced Generation series.

Ruby Flygon is nicknamed "the elemental spirit of the desert." Because its flapping wings whip up a cloud of sand, this Pokémon is always enveloped in a sandstorm while flying.
Sapphire Flygon whips up a sandstorm by flapping its wings. The wings create a series of notes that sound like singing. Because the "singing" is the only thing that can be heard in a sandstorm, this Pokémon is said to be the desert spirit.
Emerald The flapping of its wings sounds like singing. To prevent detection by enemies, it hides itself by flapping up a cloud of desert sand.
FireRed It hides itself by kicking up desert sand with its wings. Red covers shield its eyes from sand.

Trivia

  • Flygon and its pre-evolution, Vibrava share several characteristics usually associated with types other than theirs:
  • Flygon shares the same species name with Xatu. They are both known as Mystic Pokémon.
  • Flygon is commonly mistaken as a pseudo-legendary Pokémon, due to the fact that it is seen as powerful in the anime, is the final stage in a 3 part evolutionary line and is a Dragon-type Pokémon. This is not the case because it does not have base stat total of 600.
  • Flygon has the same base attack as its pre-evolution, Trapinch.
  • All of Vibrava's base stats go up by exactly 30 points when it evolves into Flygon.

Origin

Bulbanews
Bulbanews has an article related to this subject:

Flygon is based on the winged, adult stage of the antlion, which highly resembles a dragonfly. Often the adult antlion and dragonfly are confused with one another, and Flygon could draw inspiration from both. In fact, some species of dragonflies are commonly called "sand dragons", which could account for Vibrava and Flygon's interesting typing.

Name origin

Flygon's name is a portmanteau of fly and dragon or a rearrangement of dragonfly.
