Escavalier (シュバルゴ) is the 95th Pokémon in the Unova Pokédex. It is a Bug/Steel Type, and it is known as the Cavalry Pokémon.

Escavalier retains only one of its abilities from its pre-evolved form: Swarm, which increases the power of its Bug-Type attacks by 50% when its HP drops below one-third of its maximum. Karrablast that had Shed Skin will instead have Shell Armor, which prevents the opponents' attacks from landing a Critical Hit.

Escavalier that come from the Dream World won't have No Guard, but instead will have Overcoat as their ability. This ability protects this Pokémon from taking damage from weather effects. Its typing already makes it immune to the effects of Sandstorm, but Overcoat also gives it an immunity to Hail.

Karrablast can evolve in a method introduced in Generation V. It must be traded with a specific Pokémon in order to evolve. If traded with Shelmet, it will evolve from Karrablast into Escavalier.

Escavalier is in the Bug Egg Group, and its Egg will take approximately 3,840 Steps to hatch. It takes Escavalier One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.


[edit] Biology

[edit] Physiology

Escavalier takes on the appearance of an armored bug. Its arms look like lances, and the helmet appears to have a red ax-like plume.

[edit] Gender Differences

Escavalier doesn't have any distinguished features that make it appear male or female.

[edit] Game Information

[edit] Original Games

Escavalier can only be obtained by trading a Karrablast for a Shelmet in Black, White, Black 2 and White 2, which causes both Pokémon to evolve.

[edit] Spin-off Games

Escavalier appears at the Tech Area's Train Depot in PokéPark 2: Wonders Beyond after befriending Accelgor. To befriend it you'll have to defeat it into battle, after which you'll be able to call it into battle.

[edit] Trading Card Game

Escavalier is listed as a Rare Card in the Noble Victories set, and as an Uncommon Card in the Dark Explorers set.

[edit] Anime/Manga Information

[edit] Anime

Another trainer used an Escavalier in the episode Movie Time! Zorua in "The Legend of the Pokémon Knight"!. Bianca would receive an Escavalier after trading her Shelmet to Professor Juniper in the episode Evolution Exchange Excitement!

[edit] Movies

Escavalier has yet to appear in the Movies as of writing.

[edit] Manga

Alder would use an Escavalier in Chapters 48 & 49 in the Black & White portion of the Manga.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Escavalier currently resides in the RarelyUsed (RU) and UnderUsed (UU) tiers. It packs enormous power with its fantastic 135 base Attack, and high powered STAB Megahorn. Its decent bulk allows to combat Pokemon such as Sceptile effectively. Unfortunately for Escavalier, it is very slow, which can be used to an advantage on a Trick Room team, and 4x weak to Fire-type attacks, making it very vulnerable to Pokemon such as Entei and Moltres. It also lacks a good movepool, but this is typically of no real concern, because Escavalier can tear through weaker resists.
