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

Vibrava is a dragonfly-like Pokémon. It has a small head with two yellow antennae and green bulging eyes with black oval-shaped pupils. Its mouth has two large white teeth protruding from each side. It has a skinny yellow body, four skinny black legs with slender feet, and four green, rhombus-shaped wings with black edges. There are similarly-colored rhombus shapes at the end of its tail. Vibrava's wings are not fully developed, so it is unable to fly very far. However, it is able to create vibrations and ultrasonic waves with its wings. Humans get headaches from these waves. After causing prey to faint, it uses acid to melt the prey. Vibrava lives on rough terrains.

In the anime

Vibrava in the anime

Major appearances

Vibrava's first anime appearance was 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 Vibration 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.

A Coordinator named Brianna used a Vibrava in the battle round of the Pokémon Contest on Chrysanthemum Island in Spontaneous Combusken.

Minor appearances

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

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.

Generation III
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

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 type combination.

Name origin

Vibrava may be a combination of vibrate (to shake rapidly) and larva. It may also derive from Vibra.
