Noivern (Japanese: オンバーン Onvern) is a dual-type Flying/Dragon Pokémon introduced in Generation VI.

It evolves from Noibat starting at level 48.

Biology

Noivern is a large, draconic Pokémon that resembles a bat. It is primarily black with a purple underbelly and greenish turquoise wing membranes. It has a purple lower jaw, red V-shaped growth on its snout, two fang-like projections on its upper lip, yellow eyes, and a greenish-turquoise color between its eyes and the V-shaped growth. Its large, teardrop-shaped ears have alternating rings of blue-green and black on the interiors and resemble loudspeakers. Around its neck is a fluffy mane of white fur that is longer in the back. Its wings have three red claws on the middle joint and are divided into segments by two black wing fingers. On the back of the wing, the final segment is purple. Noivern's feet have two toes each and a red, claw-like growth on top of each toe. It has a long, whip-like tail with a blue-green underside and two spines near the tip.

Noivern is known for its violent temper, but becomes tame if approached with its favorite ripe fruit. From its ears, it can produce ultrasonic waves strong enough to shatter large boulders. It uses these waves to freely navigate through the darkness.[1] Noivern is also known to be cruel, ruthlessly tormenting enemies that cannot see in the dark. It uses ultrasonic waves and its fangs to finish off enemies.
