Rufflet (Japanese: ワシボン Washibon) is a dual-type Normal/Flying Pokémon.

He evolves into Braviary starting at level 54.

Biology

Physiology

Rufflet is an avian Pokémon that resembles an eaglet. His head has a thick covering of fuzzy white down and a grayish-blue face. A single red and white plume, which resembles an honor feather, extends from his forehead. Rufflet's body and wings are the same shade of blue as his face, and both seem rather miniature compared to the size of his head. He has large yellow feet tipped with black talons, and his beak is also yellow. Rufflet's tail is squared-off at the tip and his coloration matches his downy head.

Gender differences

Rufflet is a male-only species. Vullaby is regarded as their female counterpart, but is a separate species and cannot produce Rufflet Eggs.

Special abilities

Rufflet are very powerful for their size, possessing great physical strength and a highly competitive nature. They use their talons to crush Berries, and they are capable of using many aerial and wind-based attacks, as would be expected from a Flying type. They become even stronger by battling over and over.

Behavior

Rufflet will indiscriminately challenge foes to battle, even strong ones.

Habitat

Rufflet live in rugged, mountainous habitat and around gorges. They are also found in areas by water.

Trivia

Origin

Rufflet is based on an eaglet. The single plume on his head resembles an honor feather, such as those worn by the Plains Indians. Like Braviary, Rufflet is based on Native American warriors.

Rufflet also seems to have some basis on parrots as well. In the anime one is shown using his talons to crack open a nut, and then bring the nut to his bill using his foot. Parrots are the only bird species that can use its "foot" to bring food to its mouth.

According to interviews with Ken Sugimori in Nintendo Dream, Rufflet and Braviary were added early into the development of Black and White.

Name origin

Rufflet is a combination of ruffle or rough and eaglet (a young eagle).

Washibon may be a combination of 鷲 washi (eagle) and ibon (Filipino for bird) or haribon (Philippine Eagle).
