Mandibuzz (Japanese: バルジーナ Barujiina) is a Dark/Flying-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V. She is Braviary's female counterpart.

Biology

Physiology

Mandibuzz is a birdlike Pokémon that resembles a vulture or buzzard. Her head and neck are featherless and pink, with a gray beak, while her body is covered in dingy brown ruffled feathers. She has slightly squinted eyes with dark eye-shadow and red pupils, and she appears to be grinning mischievously, giving her a sinister look. She has a ponytail-like tuft of feathers atop her head, adorned with a small bone. She has a sandy brown ruff of feathers around her neck, and a skirt made of bones around her waist. Her legs and talons are pinkish with sharp black claws.

Mandibuzz is a female-only species of Pokémon.

Evolution

Mandibuzz is the evolved form of Vullaby as of level 54.

Trivia

  • No trainer in the Generation V games uses a Mandibuzz, as a result, you must evolve Vullaby yourself or get a Mandibuzz in a trade if you want to get Mandibuzz for your Pokédex.
  • Mandibuzz appears in PokéPark 2: Wonders Beyond, where you have to give her 30 Everflames to access Thundurus' shrine.
  • Mandibuzz and its pre-evolution, Vullaby, are the only Dark-type Pokémon with a 100% female gender ratio.

Origin

Mandibuzz is based on a vulture. As opposed to Braviary's influence being on the modern nation of America, with some influences from pre-historic America, Mandibuzz seems to be based off barbarians or a "cavewoman".

Etymology

The "Buzz" part in the name stands for "Buzzard", and "Mandi" from "Mandible", the name of the (human) lower jawbone, which she appears to be wearing.
