Noivern

Noivern is a Flying/Dragon type Pokémon introduced in Generation 6. It is known as the Sound Wave Pokémon.

It is extremely combative toward anything that wanders too close to it. It flies through even the darkest nights using ultrasonic waves it emits from its ears. Noivern loves fruit, and feeding it fruit will keep it calm.
