Flygon uses the Levitate Ability. This Ability prevents Vibrava from getting hit by Ground-Type moves. Additionally, Spikes and Arena Trap won't have any effect on a Pokémon that has the Levitate Ability. The move Gravity would bring Arena Trap into play because Gravity nullifies the Levitate Ability.
Flygon is in the Bug Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Flygon 1,059,860 Experience Points to reach Level 100.
Flygon resembles a fully-grown dragonfly with a striped pattern on its legs and tail.
Flygon doesn't have any visible differences to differentiate between male and female.
Flygon can only be obtained by evolving a Vibrava regardless the game that it appears in.
Flygon can only be obtained by evolving Vibrava in both Pokémon Colosseum and Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness. However, the Vibrava that appears in Pokémon Colosseum has to be Purified before it can evolve, as it is a Shadow Pokémon.
Flygon appears at Endless Level 5, Forever Level 54 and Mr. Who's Den in Pokémon Trozei!.
A Vibrava has to evolve in order to obtain a Flygon in the first round of Mystery Dungeon games. In Explorers of Time, Explorers of Darkness & Explorers of Sky, Flygon appears at Mystifying Forest B1-B13 and Mystery Jungle B1-B29. In Explorers of Time Flygon appears at Mt. Mistral 1F-19F; in Explorers of Sky Flygon appears at Mt. Wind 1F-19F. Flygon also appears at Sky Summit PTC1-PTC4 1F-3F, PTC5-PTC8 1F-4F, and PTC9 & PTCS 1F-5F. Flygon is exclusive to Stormy Adventure Squad in Mystery Dungeon 3, appearing at Weird Rockland 7F-14F.
Flygon can be found at Desolated Ruins Desert 3-1 in Pokémon Rumble Blast after completing the game.
Trading Card Game
Flygon appears in 10 sets, the 6th Move Halfdeck, a Nintendo Promo and Pokémon Organized Play Series 4 as a Rare Card. Flygon is listed as a Rare Card in the EX Dragon (2), EX Legend Maker (EX Card), EX Holon Phantoms (Delta Species Card Card), EX Dragon Frontiers (EX Delta Species Card), EX Power Keepers (EX Card), Secret Wonders, Rising Rivals (2; 1 Level X Card) and Boundaries Crossed sets.
Drew surprised everyone when he called upon his Flygon during the Hoenn Grand Festival. The combination of Flygon and Roselia was too much for May, defeating her in the Quarterfinals, but wasn't enough to defeat Robert in the Finals.
Flygon's Manga info is unknown at this time.
Flygon finds itself in the Rarelyused (RU) tier of competitive battling as among the tier's most versatile Pokémon. Flygon can fit on many playstyles due to its overall versatility, which plays a role in allowing it to perform offensive and defensive roles. With an expansive movepool, good typing, and well rounded stats, Flygon makes for among the tier's best entry hazard removers with Defog by being able to beat many of the tier's hazard setters. Levitate and Roost give Flygon great resiliency when it comes to removing hazards, while its typing allows for it to check many strong threats such as Houndoom and Aggron. Flygon's best set is its offensive Defog set that has an emphasis on the special attacking side with Draco Meteor and Earth Power to wear down at opposing hazard setters. A defensive Defog set allows for Flygon to check numerous threats and have good staying power thanks to Roost. Flygon's Choice Scarf acts as a decent revenge killer and pivot with U-turn, while its Choice Band set allows for it to dish out good damage with Outrage and Earthquake. The only flaws in Flygon are that it cannot perform multiple roles at once due to its overall middling stats and that it has a major weakness to Ice that can be exploited through coverage options like Hidden Power Ice with Electric-types.
Flygon is also usable in the Uber tier of competitive battling. With a great typing and ability in Levitate, Flygon acts as a solid check to threats like Primal Groudon, Tyranitar, and Ground Arceus. Flygon's access to Defog is greatly valued especially considering its good matchup against Primal Groudon, a common Stealth Rock setter. With Toxic and Roost, Flygon can outstall specific threats, while its immunity to Spikes and Toxic Spikes and resistance to Stealth Rock prevent it from being worn down easily by entry hazards. The flaws in Flygon are that it has major susceptibility to burn and poison, that it is passive in nature due to having to invest heavily in physical defense to be viable, and that it faces competition as a Defog user from Arceus forms.
