Bianca's Escavalier (Japanese: ベルシュバルゴ Bel's Chevargo) is a Pokémon Bianca obtained in a trade with Professor Juniper for her Shelmet and her fourth known overall.


As a Karrablast

With Professor Juniper

In Crisis at Chargestone Cave!, Bianca mentioned to Ash and his friends she decided to trade her previously introduced Shelmet for a Karrablast owned by Professor Juniper, evolving both of them in the process. Karrablast appeared at the end of the episode when Professor Juniper was ready to trade.

Before the trade could take place, Professor Juniper wanted to make a battle to gather data, in which both sides were evenly matched before the battle was interrupted. After the trouble was solved, the trade took place.

With Bianca

After Bianca traded her Shelmet for Professor Juniper's Karrablast so that both Pokémon could evolve. However, once it did, Escavalier started to chase her down and also refused to listen to her commands. During its Tag Battle against Cilan's Crustle and Ash's Boldore with Accelgor as its partner, it learned to cooperate with both it and Bianca. As Accelgor protected Escavalier by using Substitute, the two Pokémon started to work better as a team, and they were able to defeat Boldore together. Despite that both Accelgor and Escavalier were then defeated by Cilan's Crustle, Bianca was glad that her new Pokémon was now obeying her.

In Mission: Defeat Your Rival!, Bianca used Escavalier as her first Pokémon in her Vertress Conference battle against Cameron and his Samurott. Despite withstanding many of Samurott's attacks with Iron Defense, Escavalier's endurance finally ran out, and it was defeated with a Razor Shell.

Personality and characteristics

Bianca and Escavalier

Even through Escavalier hasn't had much screen time, it has showed a lot of personality. As a Karrablast, it was shown to be quite aggressive in contrast to Bianca's shy and timid Shelmet. When it evolved after the trade, Escavalier was not close with its new trainer so it began to chase her around. After being recalled with the help of Professor Juniper's Accelgor, Escavalier managed to calm down. During the tag battle with Professor Juniper's Accelgor against Ash and Cilan, it still wasn't obeying Bianca and did whatever he wanted which eventually led to Accelgor it's partner to get hurt when it tried to protect Escavalier. After seeing Accelgor risk itself to protect it, Escavalier was finally ready to listen to Bianca and managed to team up with Accelgor and defeat Ash's Boldore before falling to Cilan's Crustle.
