Braviary (Japanese: ウォーグル Warrgle) is a dual-type Normal/Flying Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

It evolves from Rufflet starting at level 54.

In Hisui, Braviary has a dual-type Psychic/Flying regional form. It evolves from Rufflet starting at level 54. All Rufflet in Hisui will evolve into this form regardless of their origin.

Biology

Braviary is a large, avian Pokémon with dark red feathers on its back and dark blue feathers on its underside. Its tail feathers are red, turning to yellow, and then blue at the tips. Braviary's legs are long and thick with yellow feet that each have a digit facing backward, and three facing forward. Each digit is tipped by a short, thick, black claw.

Braviary has a long, thick beak with a blue cere. On either side of the cere are Braviary's eyes, which are black with small white pupils. Sprouting from above the eyes are three large, white feathers. At the base of the feathers is a red, three-pointed design that is spread across all three feathers. On each side of Braviary's face, sprouting out from behind the feathers on its forehead, are an additional three white feathers pointing horizontally and downward. Behind the three feathers on its head is a large plume of white feathers, extending most of the way down its neck. These features combined resemble a Native American war bonnet.

Braviary is extremely aggressive, but for noble reasons. It will fight fiercely to help and protect its friends. Even if it is injured or has its life threatened, it will still fight. The more scars it has on its front, the more respect it gets from its peers. Scars on its back will bring it ridicule however. It has earned the nickname "hero of the skies" due to its extreme dedication for its friends. Aiding its valiance, Braviary is extremely strong, capable of lifting a car and flying with it. Braviary is known for its bravery and pride. It is usually seen as a motif for different emblems. However, due to its hotheaded and belligerent nature, Corviknight is chosen for transportation in Galar instead of Braviary.

In Hisui, Braviary's appearance is slightly changed. It has a gray and white feathered body. Braviary's tail is now shaped like a jet. The wings are shaped to resemble a white hand with black feathers underneath. The head feather is shaped like a hat. Its plumes have changed into purple flames with a light blue eye markings on them.

Unlike their Unovan counterparts, Hisuian Braviary prefers to live alone instead of flocks. Hisuian Braviary travels to Hisui during the winter season. When it hunts, it sends out a bloodcurdling battle cry to signal that it's hunting. It can use its psychic powers to unleash eerie screeches capable of generating shock waves. It uses these shock waves to stun prey living underwater in lakes, causing them to float to the surface, before it grabs them with its talons and rips them apart. Hisuian Braviary can use its psychic powers to heighten its sixth sense, as well as to enter a trance for a physical power boost.[1]

A special Hisuian Braviary is worshiped in Hisui due to it being one of the 10 ancient Pokémon who received a blessing from Arceus. In particular, it is one of the Ride Pokémon who resides in Alabaster Icelands and assists humans.

Hisuian Braviary is the only known Pokémon capable of learning the move Esper Wing.

Trivia

Origin

Because the setting of Pokémon Black and White, Unova, is based on the New York metropolitan area, the game designers considered how they could incorporate this setting — and more broadly, of America — into their designs. Braviary is based on the bald eagle, which is the national bird of the United States. Its color scheme of red, white and blue is inspired by the flag of the United States. Additionally, its design is influenced by Native American culture, which is reflected by its strong legs and the feathers on its head, the latter resembling war bonnets.[2] War bonnets were traditionally only worn by men, which is presumably reflected in Braviary's 100% male gender ratio. Braviary's personality traits appear to be based on American stereotypes.

Hisuian Braviary appears to be based on the Steller's sea-eagle, as evidenced by its larger size, dark plumage with white highlights, and pointed central tail feathers. It is described as visiting the Hisui region from the north in winter, just as the Steller's sea-eagle migrates to spend the winter in Hokkaido, which the Hisui and Sinnoh regions are based on. Steller's sea-eagle also has a rare dark morph that resembles Hisuian Braviary's shiny form. Hisuian Braviary may also be based on the Papuan harpy eagle, as evidenced by its larger size, contrasting dark and white plumage, and distinctive feather crest on his head.

Name origin

Braviary may be a combination of brave or bravery and aviary. It may also involve eyrie.

Warrgle may be a combination of war or warrior and eagle. It may also involve warble, a sound a bird makes.
