Could Noivern be our new "cave bat?"

#1CenedarprimePosted 7/30/2013 3:24:51 PM
Big leathery bat wings, powers based around sound, giant ears that are most likely used for sonar (you see those kind of ears on Loudred and Swoobat), despite being a dragon type, could it be possible that Noivern is the final form of our new "cave bat," a la Zubat or Woobat?

With Dagon types receiving a new enemy in the form of a fairy types, Noivern suddenly finds itself in a far less dominant position on the food chain (theoretically).

So what do you all think? Could we get our first dragon type bat?

Hopefully its pre-evos will be the early cave bats while Noivern is saved for Victory Road. I don't wanna get mauled by a massive wyvern bat when stepping into my first cave.

I sure hope not, unless that's an evolution. That thing is HUGE. Seeing the potential to be even more annoying than Zubat/Golbat.

Perhaps I should clarify, haha. I don't expect a fully grown Noivern to leap out at us in our first cave, I suspect Noivern is the FINAL form of the bat, with a pre-evo closer to Zubat or Woobat.

Noivern looks like a fully-evolved Pokémon to me.

It just occurred to me that I could nickname Noivern Valtor, as long as it learns a Fire type move or two.

I don't think so. I feel like it will be the pseudo-legendary for this gen.

It "could" be, I suppose, but I would hope GameFreak wouldn't make yet another "found in every cave" bat right after the last gen already introduced a new one. I wasn't too bothered by Woobat since it was a nice change of pace from Zubat from every previous generation, but to introduce another one right away I wouldn't really care for.

It'll probably still be found in caves, but hopefully it'll be a rarer pokemon and not the type of pokemon you see every 3 seconds.

I think the first 2 forms would be Flying/something else instead of Flying/Dragon.
