Pokédex entries

Ruby To make prey faint, VIBRAVA generates ultrasonic waves by vigorously making its two wings vibrate. This POKéMON’s ultrasonic waves are so powerful, they can bring on headaches in people.
Sapphire VIBRAVA’s wings have not yet completed the process of growing. Rather than flying long distances, they are more useful for generating ultrasonic waves by vibrating.
FireRed
LeafGreen
It generates ultrasonic waves by violently flapping its wings. After making its prey faint, it melts the prey with acid.
Emerald It looses ultrasonic waves by rubbing its wings together. Since a VIBRAVA’s wings are still in the process of growing, it can only fly short distances.

Alpha Sapphire Vibrava’s wings have not yet completed the process of growing. Rather than flying long distances, they are more useful for generating ultrasonic waves by vibrating.
Sun Rather than using its underdeveloped wings for flight, it rubs them together, producing ultrasonic waves to attack its enemies.
Moon To help make its wings grow, it dissolves quantities of prey in its digestive juices and guzzles them down every day.
