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 its 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

  • It is impossible to get a 'seen' Pokédex entry for Rufflet in Pokémon Black without trading with another player.

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. This, in combination with his evolution's war bonnet-like crest, suggests inspiration from Native American warriors.

Name origin

Rufflet is derived from a combination of "ruffle" or "rough" and "eaglet", the term for a young eagle. Washibon may come from 鷲 washi, meaning eagle, and ibon, Filipino word for bird. The last part may be also derived from haribon, the Philippine eagle.

In other languages

Language Name Name Origin
German Geronimatz From Geronimo and Piepmatz.
French Furaiglon From fury or fur and aiglon.
Korean 수리둥보 Suridungbo
Chinese (Mandarin) 毛頭小鷹 / 毛头小鹰 Máotóuxiǎoyīng Literally "Feather-headed eaglet".
