DESCRIPTION: Noivern is a medium-sized dragon Pokémon that can emit ultrasonic waves from its large ears. Due to its ability to use ultrasonics, Noivern can travel around freely in the dark. In fact, nothing can defeat Noivern in the darkness! They easily swoop down on unsuspecting pray on moonless nights. The ultrasonic waves Noivern emit from their ears are so powerful, they can reduce large boulders into rubble. Noivern have a tendency to be a bit aggressive as well. Luckily, it seems as though they can be calmed by eating berries.
Frisk - Reveals an opponent's held item upon entering battle.
Infiltrator - Bypasses Light Screen, Reflect, and Safeguard.
Telepathy (hidden) - Protects against friendly Pokémon's damaging moves.
EVOLUTION: Noivern evolves from Noibat starting at level 48. Unfortunately, Noibat can be very challenging to train because its base stats add up to only 245. In other words, Noibat is only in the 4.3rd percentile! It is basically as fragile as a piece of paper and doesn't dish out much damage. The Eviolite item is incredibly useful when training Noibat to evolve and I would highly suggest using it. Hang in there, though! The moment your Noibat evolves to Noivern will make all the hard work worth it.
