  • It is most likely based on a Bald Eagle, one of the national symbols of the United States, or a Golden Eagle.
  • Its English name, Braviary, is derived from the words "Brave", possibly meaning courage or having to do with American Indian Braves, and "Aviary", meaning a large cage or a house or enclosure in which birds are kept.
  • Its Japanese name, Wargle, is derived from war and eagle.
  • It was revealed in the August issue of Coro Coro along with six other Pokémon on July 11, 2010.
  • Braviary is exclusive to Pokémon White, where as its counterpart, Mandibuzz, is exclusive to Pokémon Black.
  • Braviary is an all-male species, where as its counterpart Mandibuzz is all-female.
  • Braviary requires a Ditto in order to breed, as breeding it with Mandibuzz will only spawn Vullaby eggs (This is the same relationship shared between Tauros and Miltank).
  • It is interesting to note that a person with black version, a DS, and Wi-Fi can get Braviary after battling Cynthia. But one with White, a DS, and Wi-Fi can't get the counterpart Mandibuzz, due to no trainers using it on either game (except on the Battle Subway which doesn't register Pokémon seen in the Pokédex.)
  • Braviary has the 2nd highest attack stat (123) of all non-legendary bird based Pokémon, with the highest attack belonging to Honchkrow (125).
  • Before being revealed that the Unova region was based on America, many Pokémon fans considered Braviary's Bald Eagle-esque appearance as evidence that the games were based there.
  • Braviary is August in the Pokémon Horoscope, the same date as the Coro Coro issue it was revealed.
