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

Flygon resembles a slightly insectoid, bipedal dragon. It is primarily light green and has a pair of large rhombus-shaped wings with a red trim, toeless hind legs, and skinny arms with three-clawed hands. Its tail has several dark green stripes and three small green rhombus shapes with red trims at the end. It has large eyes, and a pair of green antennae that point back. The eyes have red covers that prevent sand from getting into its eyes. With its wings, it kicks up sandstorms to hide itself. Its wings make a "singing" sound when they are flapped, earning Flygon the name "The Desert Spirit". It lives in the desert.

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 shares its species names with Xatu. They are both known as the Mystic Pokémon in English, and the Spirit Pokémon in Japanese.
  • Flygon is the only fully-evolved Pokémon lacking a Hidden Ability that evolves from a Pokémon with a Hidden Ability.
  • Flygon has the same base Attack as its base form, Trapinch.
  • All of Vibrava's base stats go up by exactly 30 points when it evolves into Flygon.
  • Flygon's EV Yield (1 Attack, 2 Speed) is unique.

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 type combination. In keeping with its Dragon type, it also possesses a dragon-like build and reptilian features such as its arms and tail.

Name origin

Flygon is a combination of fly and dragon. It may also be a partial anagram of dragonfly.
