Vibrava (Japanese: ビブラーバ Vibrava) is a dual-type Ground/Dragon Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

It evolves from Trapinch starting at level 35 and evolves into Flygon starting at level 45.

Contents

Biology

Vibrava is a dragonfly-like Pokémon. It has a small head with two yellow antennae and green bulging eyes with black oval-shaped pupils. Its mouth has two large white teeth protruding from each side. It has a skinny yellow body, four skinny black legs with slender feet, and four green, rhombus-shaped wings with black edges. There are similarly-colored rhombus shapes at the end of its tail.

Vibrava's wings are not fully developed, so it is unable to fly very far. However, it is able to create vibrations and ultrasonic waves with its wings. Humans get headaches from these waves. After causing the prey to faint, as a saprotroph, it spits stomach acid to melt its prey before consumption. It continues this eating process every day to help its wings glow. Vibrava calls the desert home and is also known to preserve its captured prey in the desert's hot sands.

Major appearances

Multiple Vibrava made their main series debut in Beg, Burrow and Steal. Dozens of Trapinch were seen evolving into them at an underground lake. Team Rocket attempted to steal the Vibration Pokémon despite the fact the idea Meowth had of using their previous forms as nutcrackers was now foiled.

In Spontaneous Combusken, Brianna used a Vibrava during the Battle Stage of the Chrysanthemum Contest.

Ruby To make prey faint, Vibrava generates ultrasonic waves by vigorously making its two wings vibrate. This Pokémon's ultrasonic waves are so powerful, they can bring on headaches in people.
Sapphire Vibrava's wings have not yet completed the process of growing. Rather than flying long distances, they are more useful for generating ultrasonic waves by vibrating.
Emerald It looses ultrasonic waves by rubbing its wings together. Since a Vibrava's wings are still in the process of growing, it can only fly short distances.
FireRed It generates ultrasonic waves by violently flapping its wings. After making its prey faint, it melts the prey with acid.

Trivia

  • Vibrava shares its category with Palpitoad and Seismitoad. They are all known as the Vibration Pokémon.
  • Vibrava and its evolution are the only Dragon-type Pokémon belonging in the Bug Egg Group.
    • As of Generation VIII, Vibrava and its evolutionary relatives are the only Pokémon that are in the Bug and Dragon egg groups.
  • Vibrava's base Attack stat is lower than that of its pre-evolution, but it returns to the original stat when it evolves into Flygon.
  • Vibrava is the only Pokémon to gain the Dragon-type upon evolution and still be able to evolve.

Origin

Bulbanews
Bulbanews has an article related to this subject:

Vibrava represents the adult stage of an antlion, though it seems to draw more visual inspiration from mayflies, possibly nodding to the Japanese word for an adult antlion, usuba-kagerou, or "thin-winged mayfly". Combined with an antlion's resemblance to a dragonfly, Vibrava's typing suggests that it may also draw inspiration from sanddragons. Its tendency to create harsh noises with its wings is similar to that of a cicada.

Name origin

Vibrava may be a combination of vibrate (to shake rapidly) and larva. It may also derive from Vibra.
