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.

The ultrasonic waves it emits from its ears can reduce a large boulder to pebbles. It swoops out of the dark to attack.
Ultra Sun Although it has a violent disposition, if you give it a nice ripe fruit that it loves, Noivern will suddenly become tame.
Ultra Moon This hot-blooded Pokémon attacks anything it sees with ultrasonic waves that can crush boulders.
Sword Aggressive and cruel, this Pokémon will ruthlessly torment enemies that are helpless in the dark.
Shield Flying through the darkness, it weakens enemies with ultrasonic waves that could crush stone. Its fangs finish the fight.
