Bagon (タツベイ) is the 187th Pokémon in the Hoenn Pokédex. It is a Dragon type, and is known as the Rock Head Pokémon.

Bagon has the Rock Head Ability, which makes it immune to the effects of recoil from moves that cause recoil, with the exception of Struggle. A second Ability is available to Bagon from the Dream World, the Sheer Force Ability. This Ability gives attacks that have a secondary effect a 33% Increase in power, but those attacks lose their secondary effect as a result.

Bagon gains the opportunity to evolve into a Shelgon at Level 30, and can evolve a second time at Level 50 into a Salamence. Starting in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, Salamence can become a Mega Salamence by using a Mega Stone.

Bagon is in the Dragon Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 10,240 Steps to hatch. It takes Bagon 1,250,000 Experience Points to reach Level 100.

[edit] Game Information

[edit] Original Games

Bagon appears deep within Meteor Falls in Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald. Specifically, it appears in the room in which TM02 is found.

Bagon appears at the North End of Route 210 in Pearl and Platinum when using the Poké Radar. Bagon can also be found at the Safari Zone's Swamp area in Heart Gold and Soul Silver after placing 9 Forest Objects & 19 Peak Objects, then waiting 110 Days from their initial placement for a Bagon to appear, the longest wait time for all Pokémon that appear by way of block placement in the Safari Zone.

Bagon appears at White Forest in Pokémon White. In Black 2 and White 2, Bagon can be found inside a Hidden Grotto at Pinwheel Forest.

In each game that a Bagon appears in, a wild Bagon has a 5% chance of holding a Dragon-related item. In the Generation III games it has a 5% chance of holding a Dragon Scale; from Generation IV onward it has a 5% chance of holding a Dragon Fang.

[edit] Spin-off Games

Bagon doesn't appear often, but when it does, it'll be at Huge Storage 5 and Mr. Who's Den in Pokémon Trozei!.

Bagon appears at Lapis Cave 9F-13F, Wish Cave 45F-49F, Wyvern Hill 1F-4F and Joyous Tower 42F-45F in the first round of Mystery Dungeon games. In Explorers of Time, Explorers of Darkness & Explorers of Sky, Bagon appears at Crystal Crossing B1-B7 and Final Maze B1-B48. Bagon is exclusive to Blazing Adventure Squad in Mystery Dungeon 3, appearing at Sunset Rockland B1-B9 and Final Mountain 9F-13F.

Bagon only appears during Missions in Pokémon Ranger. Bagon appears inside the Volcano Cave in Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia, and returns in Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs at the Entrance of Mt. Sorbet and the Western Mountainside in the Present, and in the Dark Temple Missions Danger! Surrounded by Pokémon and Ground-Shaking Dragon Pokémon in the Past by capturing it and obtaining its Slate. Both missions have difficult bosses to beat, making beating the missions to keep those slates a considerably difficult challenge.
