Noivern (オンバーン) is the 114th Pokémon in the Kalos Mountain Pokédex. It is a Flying/Dragon-Type, and is known as the Sound Wave Pokémon.

Noivern can use one of two Abilities: Frisk, which reveals what the opponent's Hold Item is (if any); or Infiltrator, an Ability that ignores protections and increased Statistics caused by moves such as Safeguard or Reflect. Noivern's Hidden Ability is Telepathy, which protects it from taking damage from its allies in a Double Battle or Triple Battle.

Noibat can evolve into Noivern at Level 48.

Noivern is in the Flying Egg Group. It takes Noivern One MIllion Experience Points to reach Level 100.

Pokémon Information

Competitive Battling

Noivern is in the Borderline 2 (BL2) tier of competitive battling, meaning that it is banned from the Rarelyused (RU) tier but not used enough to be a part of the Underused (UU) tier. In UU, Noivern's high base 123 Speed and decent base 97 Special Attack to complement high powered STABs in Draco Meteor and Hurricane can allow for it to act as a speedy offensive threat. Its best set is a Choice Specs set that can do some significant damage against offensive teams while being able to cripple defensive checks with Switcheroo or pivot out with U-turn. Noivern can also run a Taunt + Roost set to act as an anti-lead. The main problem with Noivern is that other Dragon-types, such as Hydreigon, are much better than it in terms of wallbreaking and provide greater utility than it. Noivern also suffers from average bulk at best which does not give it the best opportunities in terms of switching in and wreaking havoc.
