Flygon (Japanese: フライゴン Flygon) 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.

Behavior

This dragon Pokémon is highly adapted to life in the desert, these adaptations have given it the nickname "the elemental spirit of the desert". 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.

Generation III
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.
LeafGreen It hides itself by kicking up desert sand with its wings. Red covers shield its eyes from sand.
