Flygon: Type, Powers, Strengths, Weaknesses, Evolutions and Moves

The world of Pokémon has been a growing phenomenon since 1996, when the first pair of video games came out in stores. Pokémon started off as a video game series and although new creatures are primarily introduced in the video games, the anime series has become as popular as the video games. As of December 2021, there are almost 900 individual Pokémon identified by the PokéDex and in this article, we are going to tell you everything you need to know about one of them – Flygon.

Flygon is a dual Ground- and Dragon-type Pokémon first introduced in Generation III of the core video games. It is the second and final evolution form of Trapinch. Trapinch first evolves into Vibrava, which, in turn, evolves into Flygon. It is weak only to Ice-, Dragon-, and Fairy-type moves, and is super effective against Dragon-, Electric-, Fire-, Poison-, Roc-, and Steel-type Pokémon. It is immune to Ground-, and Electric-type moves.

You’ll find out about its type, its powers, its strengths and weaknesses, its evolutions, and its moves. We’re going to focus on both the core games, as well as other popular video games based on the Pokémon franchise.
