He has fairly large feet and talons with black claws. His feathery tail is short and cream-colored. They crush berries with their talons. They bravely stand up to any opponen, no matter how strong it is.

Trivia

  • Rufflet shares similarities to Growlithe. They both stand up to strong opponents without fear and they also have 350 stat total.
  • It is impossible to get a seen Pokédex entry for Rufflet in Pokémon Black and Pokémon Black 2 without trading with another player.

Origin

Rufflet is based on an eagle chick.

Etymology

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

His 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'.
