Vikavolt (Japanese: クワガノン Kuwagannon) is a dual-type Bug/Electric Pokémon introduced in Generation VII.

It evolves from Charjabug when leveled up in a special magnetic field. It is the final form of Grubbin.

Biology

Vikavolt is a beetle-like Pokémon with a large pair of mandibles. Its small orange face has robotic, yellow eyes and is covered by a blue carapace. The mandibles extend from this helmet. They are blue on the inner surface and yellow on the outer surface. At the base of each mandible is a large spike and the inside is lined with short spikes. Its body is black and divided into three sections by yellow rings. The last two sections have a yellow spot on each side. On its back is a pair of wide, flat wings that are transparent with blue wing covers. It has four legs. The front pair of legs has two claws, while the back pair has only one.

Vikavolt produces electricity with an organ in its abdomen, and controlled by its huge jaws to fire beams. When it clasps a Charjabug in its legs, it is able to utilize it as an extra battery. This allows it to continue firing powerful attacks. However, in fierce aerial fights, it will release Charjabug to make itself lighter and more mobile. It is an adept flier, capable of acrobatic maneuvers such as tailspins and sharp turns. Even as it weaves through complicated tangles of branches in the forest, it is able to maintain high-speed flight.[1] It is known to have a rivalry with Pinsir.

Trivia

  • Vikavolt shares its category with Pinsir. They are both known as the Stag Beetle Pokémon.
  • Vikavolt has the highest base Special Attack stat of all Bug-type Pokémon.
  • Vikavolt, along with its evolutionary relatives, were designed by Hitoshi Ariga.

Origin

Vikavolt appears to be based on a stag beetle and a railgun. Its straight, scissor-like mandibles resemble those of Lucanus hayashii and some Cyclommatus species of beetles.

Name origin

Vikavolt may come from vice grip or wicga (Old English for insect) and volt.

Kuwagannon may be a combination of 鍬形虫 kuwagatamushi (stag beetle) and cannon.
