Vibrava (Japanese: ビブラーバ Vibrava) is a dual-type Ground/Dragon Pokémon.

It evolves from Trapinch starting at level 35, and evolves into Flygon starting at level 45.

Biology

Physiology

Vibrava is a dragonfly-like Pokémon. It has a skinny yellow body, and green rhombus-shaped wings along with two similar-looking shapes at the end of its tail. Vibrava has green eyes and skinny black legs.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Vibrava is capable of emitting and manipulating sound waves from its wings. This ability has been tuned to the point where this Pokémon is able to induce headaches in humans. It also has the ability Levitate. This allows Vibrava to dodge Template:Type2 attacks such as Earthquake and Magnitude. Oddly enough, its physical attacking power is actually weaker than Trapinch's.

Being a Template:Type2 Pokémon, Vibrava can learn Draco Meteor.

Behavior

Upon evolution, Vibrava gains the ability of limited flight. However, its wings are not fully mature, and are ineffective at flying any significant distance. Although they are not this Pokémon's primary method of locomotion, they are their primary method of prey capture. By vibrating its wings rapidly, it produces ultrasonic waves. These waves are quite powerful, and can cause their prey to faint. Fortunately, these waves usually do not do more damage than a headache in humans.

Habitat

Vibrava live in deserts, they enjoy rocks and nearby trees if they can find any in their sandy habitat.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

Vibrava hunts by vibrating its wings at high frequency. Once its prey has fainted, it injects the prey with potent venom.

In the anime

Major appearances

Several once again appeared in Beg, Burrow and Steal. Dozens of Trapinch were seen evolving into them at an underground lake. Team Rocket made a failed attempt to steal the Antlion Pokémon despite the fact the idea Meowth had of using their previous forms as nut-crackers was now foiled. The Vibrava helped Ash, May, Max, Brock, Hal and Elisa out of the underground labyrinth.

Minor appearances

Vibrava first appeared in Jirachi: Wish Maker, in the form of a swarm.

A Coordinator named Brianna used a Vibrava in the battle round of the Pokémon Contest on Chrysanthemum Island in Spontaneous Combusken. Vibrava were also used by random coordinators in Hi Ho Silver Wind and Harley Rides Again.

It also appeared in Pokémon Ranger and the Kidnapped Riolu! Part One.

Ruby To make prey faint, Vibrava generates ultrasonic waves by vigorously making its two wings vibrate. This Pokémon's ultrasonic waves are so powerful, they can bring on headaches in people.
Sapphire Vibrava's wings have not yet completed the process of growing. Rather than flying long distances, they are more useful for generating ultrasonic waves by vibrating.
Emerald It looses ultrasonic waves by rubbing its wings together. Since a Vibrava's wings are still in the process of growing, it can only fly short distances.
FireRed It generates ultrasonic waves by violently flapping its wings. After making its prey faint, it melts the prey with acid.

Trivia

  • Vibrava and its evolution, Flygon share several characteristics usually associated with types other than theirs:
  • Vibrava has lower base Attack stat than its pre-evolution, Trapinch.
    • Vibrava is the only non-cocoon based Pokémon whose Attack stat is lower than the Pokémon it evolves from.
  • 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:

Vibrava is based on the adult stage of an antlion. Often the adult antlion and dragonfly are confused with one another, and Vibrava 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

Vibrava's name is probably based on the word vibrate, to shake, and larva. It may also derive from Vibra
