Rufflet (Pokémon)

47 bytes added, 23 August
Rufflet, like Braviary, is based on the {{wp|bald eagle}}, specifically a baby eaglet most likely, paralleling Rufflet's position as the start of its evolutionary line. Its color scheme is inspired by the red, white, and blue of the {{wp|flag of the United States}}. The single plume on his head also derives from {{wp|Native Americans in the United States|Native American}} culture.<ref>[ Interview in Nintendo Dream Issue 205 (May 2011), via Fan blog post (Japanese)]</ref>
Its ability to use its talons to crack open nuts and feed itself in the {{pkmn|anime}} is similar to that of {{wp|parrot}}s, who are the only known bird species to do so.
