Bagon (Japanese: タツベイ Tatsubay) is a Dragon-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

It evolves into Shelgon starting at level 30, which evolves into Salamence starting at level 50.

Biology

Bagon is a bipedal, blue, reptilian Pokémon vaguely resembling a Pachycephalosaurus. It possesses a large, round snout, triangular eyes, yellow, circular ears similar to reptiles, and a yellow lower jaw with two teeth protruding upwards. Three thick, gray ridges cover the top of its head and continue downwards to cover its neck as well. There is a triangular patch of yellow on its underside. It has stubby, digit-less arms and short legs with two toes on each foot.

Bagon lives in rough terrains with cliffs and rocks. It longs to fly and jumps off cliffs trying to be able to do so. Frustrated at its inability to fly, it leaps off cliffs and smashes its head against large rocks indiscriminately. This process of continually bashing its head causes it to become as hard as steel. Well-developed neck muscles support its hard head. This, combined with its powerful body, allows it to shatter rocks with its head. Bagon is known to be rather solitary, preferring not to form groups with others of its kind. It has been theorized that Bagon's habit of head-bashing and pure belief influences the cells needed to help it evolve.

Evolution

Bagon evolves into Shelgon, which evolves into Salamence.

(For specifics on this Pokémon's evolution in the games, refer to Game data→Evolution data.)

Major appearances

Bagon debuted in Let Bagons be Bagons, under the ownership of Michelle. Throughout the episode, it tried to learn how to fly. It eventually evolved into a Shelgon.

In Pinch Healing, a Bagon was under the care of Matt. When it saw some Butterfree and a Fearow, it wanted to fly, much like the above Bagon. Ash and Matt left to go find it when it wandered off while trying to do so. It eventually fell into a stream, where it was attacked by a school of Carvanha. After being rescued, Bagon was found to have contracted a fever and was sent to the Pokémon Center, where it eventually healed.

In Tag! We're It...!, a Trainer's Bagon competed in the Hearthome City Tag Battle Competition. It fought alongside a Yanma against Brock's Sudowoodo and Holly's Wingull, but they were defeated.

In A Fashionable Battle!, Sawyer used a Bagon in his Gym battle against Valerie, where it took on Spritzee but was defeated. In Rivals: Today and Tomorrow!, it was used in a battle against Ash and was defeated by Pikachu. It evolved into a Shelgon sometime before A Meeting of Two Journeys!, and then into a Salamence sometime before Analysis Versus Passion!.

Sun Its belief that it will be able to fly one day is apparently the influence of information carried in its genes.
Moon With its steel-hard stone head, it headbutts indiscriminately. This is because of the stress it feels at being unable to fly.
Ultra Sun Whenever it sees bird Pokémon flying through the sky, it becomes envious and smashes its surroundings to bits with headbutts.

Name origin

Bagon may be a combination of baby and dragon.
