Fletchling (Japanese: ヤヤコマ Yayakoma) is a dual-type Normal/Flying Pokémon introduced in Generation VI.

It evolves into Fletchinder starting at level 17, which evolves into Talonflame starting at level 35.

Contents

Biology

Fletchling is a small, avian Pokémon similar in appearance to a robin. It has a reddish-orange head with a triangular yellow mark on the back of each eye. Its body and wings are gray, and there are white tips on the wings. It has a long, black tail with a white V-shaped marking near the tip. The tail ends in two points, and has two feathers sticking out at the base, resembling the fletching on the end of an arrow. Its legs, small beak, and eyes are black. The legs are thin and spindly, with two toes facing forward and one facing backward on each foot.

Fletchling is said to be very friendly and is well known for its beautiful songs. It communicates by using chirps and moving its tailfeathers to signal others of its kind. In spite of its typically peaceful disposition, it is relentless in battle and very territorial, attacking perceived threats mercilessly. Its body is warm and doubles in temperature when startled or excited. This increase in temperature spikes hormone production in its body. It can burn someone if they touch it with their bare hands.

Trivia

  • Fletchling is the only regional bird Pokémon to have its primary type changed upon evolution.
  • Fletchling was designed by Saya Tsuruta.

Origin

Fletchling seems to be based on a Japanese robin. Its tail design and name might suggest that it was also based in part on an arrow.

Name origin

Fletchling may be a combination of fletching, fledgling, and hatchling.

Yayakoma may be a combination of 矢 ya (arrow), 稚児 yayako (baby), and 駒鳥 komadori (Japanese Robin).
