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

Biology

Physiology

Noivern is a large, draconian bat-like Pokémon. Noivern stands upright on its two clawed feet when it isn't flying. Its body is mainly purple and black in color. It has large, black and purple wings, which bear three red, claw-like protrusions at their tips each. The thin flaps of skin connecting Noivern's wings to its body are green in color. It has a fluffy white collar of fur encircling the lower portion of its neck. Its underbelly is purple while its back and extremities are black, with red claws. Noivern has piercing yellow eyes and v-shaped eyebrow-like features. Its mouth has two pointed black features just below its nostrils. Its ears, which resemble loudspeakers, are very large and rounded with green insides.

Behavior

Noivern has an aggressive temperament and will ruthlessly taunt its opponents in the dark. Supposedly, it will attack anything that wanders too close to it. Enemies that are weakened by the sound waves are dealt with the finishing blow by Noivern's fangs. However, Noivern can be tamed by trustworthy trainers if given a fruit to eat.

Abilities

It emits an explosive sound wave that attacks all nearby enemies and allies. The ultrasonic sound waves Noivern emits are strong enough to shatter large boulders.

Evolution

Noivern evolves from Noibat at level 48.

Anime

Ash's Noivern.

Ash's Noibat evolved into Noivern while saving Hawlucha from falling into a ravine and battling the Legendary Pokémon, Zapdos in An Electrifying Rage!

Trivia

Origin

Noivern is based on a wyvern and several species of bat (a leaf-nosed bat and fruit bat to name a few). Its ears also represent a bass speaker or a treble speaker. It may be based on the concept of bats using echolocation to move around, a form of communication that involves sound.

Etymlogy

Noivern comes from the words noise and wyvern, a type of dragon.
