Hisuian Braviary allows trainers to fly across Hisui, making it among the most useful Pokemon to have by one’s side.

Pokemon Legends: Arceus brought a brand new bird to the franchise: Hisuian Braviary. It has been known as the “Battle Cry” Pokemon due to the loud call it makes before going off to hunt. It will send out psychic shockwaves into lakes and then scoop up any fish that float to the surface. Its Hisuian PokeDex number is #222.

How to Evolve Rufflet into Hisuian Braviary

Rufflet will evolve into Hisuian Braviary at level 54. There are no additional requirements and it appears Generation V’s original Braviary is not available in Pokemon Legends: Arceus.

Once evolved, Hisuian Braviary replaces its traditional normal-type tag with psychic—making it a psychic and flying-type.

Trainers can all upon Hisuian Braviary to fly over the terrain of a given region in Hisui. However, Braviary cannot be used to fly between regions or all of Hisui as a whole. This is similar to:

  • Wyrdeer, who can be used to ride across the land
  • Basculegion, who allows trainers to traverse the oceans, rivers, and lakes
  • Sneasler, who can climb the sheer face of mountains and cliffs

Trainers can also climb on the back of Ursaluna, but its role is less of a mount and more of a unique tool.

Before they evolve into Braviary, however, each member of this species starts its life as the Eaglet Pokemon, Rufflet. Those looking to start from the beginning and obtain a Rufflet can find them by checking out our companion article.
