Vullaby (Japanese: バルチャイ Valchai) is a dual-type Dark/Flying Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

It evolves into Mandibuzz starting at level 54.

Biology

Vullaby resembles a baby vulture. It has a plump, stout body covered in dark gray feathers, tiny wings with gray tips, and pink feet with three clawed toes. Its neck is short and supports a round, pink head devoid of any feathers, except for a crest on the top. There is a collar of fluffy, light gray feathers around its neck. It has a small gray beak and red eyes. It seems to be wearing a broken skull as a diaper-like undergarment, hence its species name. Vullaby either finds this bone itself or uses one found for it by Mandibuzz. Vullaby is known to chase after weaker creatures. Vullaby is a female-only species.

This Pokémon has no Pokédex entries in Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!‎.
Sun It protects its plump posterior with the bones of prey it has consumed. As it grows, it replaces the bones.
Moon It can't fly yet and must wait until its wings have developed more. Since it's still at a playful age, it hops around friskily.
Ultra Sun Mandibuzz gives it the bones it wears. Vullaby's wings are short, so it can't fly yet, but it jumps around, dreaming of wide open skies.
Ultra Moon Its healthy appetite leads to visible growth spurts. It often has to replace the bones it wears as its size increases.
