Vikavolt

Vikavolt is a Bug/Electric type Pokémon introduced in Generation 7. It is known as the Stag Beetle Pokémon.

Vikavolt is like a fortress that zooms through the forest, firing a beam of electricity from its mouth. Its huge jaws control the electricity it blasts out. Vikavolt is adept at acrobatic flight maneuvers like tailspins and sharp turns. It can fly at high speeds even as it weaves its way through the complicated tangle of branches in the forest.

Vikavolt evolves from Charjabug.
