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 one of the tier's best Pokémon. Thanks to its typing, movepool, and stat distribution, Flygon is a versatile Pokémon capable of fitting in on numerous playstyles. Its solid Attack and Speed stats alongside a great offensive typing and U-turn to pivot out allows for it to run Choice sets very effectively. Flygon has some high-powered STAB attacks in Outrage and Earthquake that give it a very nice offensive presence against a number of the tier's most notable threats. Flygon is not hindered by entry hazards at all, as it is resistant to Stealth Rock and avoids being affected by other entry hazards due to Levitate. With Roost, a solid defensive typing, and Defog, Flygon makes for a good support Pokémon as well and can act as one of the tier's most reliable entry hazard removers. Flygon's best set is a Choice Band set that gives it as much of a power boost as possible and can act as a solid pivot to wear down opposing walls that may come in. Its Defog support set is also a very good option as it gives a great amount of utility for teams and can check some threats with some investment in its bulk. Lastly, Flygon is an adept Choice Scarf user that can be a fast pivot and revenge killer. While Flygon does not have many flaws, it is not a perfect Pokémon in RU. Flygon can be rather underwhelming offensively and defensively at times due to no one stat standing out among the rest. Some common physically bulky Water and Grass-types, like Alomomola and Venusaur, can come in and giving Flygon quite a bit of trouble. Flygon's Speed, while good, does put it behind a few threats like Delphox, Jolteon, Sneasel, and Virizion, all of which can outspeed and threaten it if Flygon does not have a Choice Scarf equipped. Flygon's typing gives it a brutal weakness to Ice, which leaves it vulnerable to being easily taken out by the likes of Sneasel, Mega Glalie, and Abomasnow.
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.
