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.

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 injured, it will still fight. The more scars it has, the more respect it gets from its peers. It has earned the nickname "soldier of the sky" due to its extreme dedication for its friends. Aiding its valiance, Braviary is extremely strong, capable of lifting a car and flying with it.

Trivia

  • Braviary represents August in the Unova horoscope.
  • Braviary and Rufflet can be seen as counterparts to Mandibuzz and Vullaby. Braviary and Mandibuzz share a base stat total of 510, evolve from their pre-evolutions starting at 54, and are both part Flying. Braviary and Rufflet are exclusive to White, White 2, and Sun while Mandibuzz and Vullaby are to Black, Black 2 and Moon. Whereas Braviary and Rufflet can only be male, Mandibuzz and Vullaby can only be female.
  • Braviary and Vanillish weigh as much as Lyra.

Origin

Braviary may be based on the bald eagle. Its color scheme may be inspired by the red, white, and blue of the flag of the United States. Its design also may be influenced by Native American culture. This may be reflected in the feathers on its head, resembling war bonnets.[1]

Name origin

Braviary is a corruption of bravery and a combination of brave and aviary. "Home of the brave" is a lyric found in the "The Star-Spangled Banner", the national anthem of the United States. Brave may also refer to the term used for Native American warriors, as in some tribes, the eagle is a sacred animal.

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