Biology

Physiology

Rufflet is a small shaggy bird-like Pokémon that resembles an eagle chick. This species of Pokémon can only be male. It has quite a big head compared to the size of its body. The head has shaggy cream-colored outer feathers. The inner part of its head is blue, with a red spike at the top. He has ovular black eyes, with white pupils. Its neck feathers are cream-colored and downy, encircling its neck like a scarf, and its wings and small body are grayish blue, as well as the mask around its eyes. It has fairly large feet and talons with black claws. Its feathery tail is short and cream-colored.

Evolution

Rufflet evolves into Braviary at level 54.

Etymology

Rufflet's name seems to be a combination of the words "ruffle" or "ruffled" (referring to its feathers) and "eaglet".

Its Japanese name 'Washibon' is possibly derived from 'Washi' meaning eagle in Japanese, or the Filipino word 'Haribon' known as Philippine Eagle meaning King of Birds. In addition it sounds phonetically similar to 'Washington'.
