Mandibuzz (Japanese: バルジーナ Barujiina) is a / Dark -type and the evolution of Flying Vullaby. Mandibuzz is also the opposite of Braviary as it only appears in Pokémon Black. It is pure female only, and is most likely based on a adult vulture or a condor. Vullaby evolves into it at level 54.
It makes a nest out of the bones it finds. It grabs weakened prey in its talons and hauls it to its nest of bones.
Watching from the sky, they swoop to strike weakened Pokémon on the ground. They decorate themselves with bones.
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".
The "buzz" part in the name stands for buzzard, and "Mandi" from "mandible", the name of the (human) lower jawbone, which it appears to be wearing.
No trainer in the Generation V games uses a Mandibuzz, as a result, you evolve Vullaby yourself or get a Mandibuzz in a trade, to get Mandibuzz for your Pokédex.
In the anime, a girl name Katherine owns a Mandibuzz in Scraggy and the Demanding Gothita
