Trivia

  • He was revealed in the August issue of CoroCoro along with six other Pokémon on July 11, 2010.
  • Braviary requires a Ditto in order to breed, as breeding him with Mandibuzz will only spawn Vullaby eggs (this is the same relationship shared between Tauros and Miltank).
  • Braviary has the 2nd highest attack stat (123) of all non-legendary bird based Pokémon, with the highest attack belonging to Honchkrow (125).
  • Before being revealed that the Unova region was based on America, many Pokémon fans considered Braviary's bald eagle-esque appearance as evidence that the games were based there.
  • Braviary is August in the Pokémon Horoscope, the same date as the CoroCoro issue he was revealed in.
  • The Pokédex entry in Pokémon Moon is a reference to how real-world bald eagles were once critically endangered but were recovered.
    • Although the Pokédex entry said people directly disturbed its habitat, in real life, the bald eagle population was dropping due to them ingesting pesticides from the fish, which caused their eggshells to be too thin and thus making them break. Also, the entry said that they worked together to fight back, however in real life the bald eagle population was recovered due to human effort.

Origin

He is most likely based on a bald eagle, one of the national symbols of the United States, or a golden eagle. Its color palette also consists of red, white, and blue referencing the American Flag and concept of Unova (Unova is based on New York and is the first Pokémon region based on a US state). As opposed to Mandibuzz's influence being on pre-historic America, Braviary seems to be based off the influence of modern America. The feathers on its head also represent Native American headdresses.

Etymology

His English name, Braviary, is derived from the words "Brave", possibly meaning courage or having to do with American Indian Braves, and "Aviary", meaning a large cage or a house or enclosure in which birds are kept.

His Japanese name, Wargle, is derived from war and eagle.
