Everything we know about Hisuian Braviary

Hisuian Braviary made its first appearance in Pokémon Legends: Arceus for the Nintendo Switch. Within this game, it is both a Pokémon you can add to the Hisui Pokédex and one of the Mount Pokémon who provide travel assistance in your adventure.

Gen 5 Braviary.

Due to being a Hisuian variant, Hisuian Braviary differs in both appearance and type when compared to Gen 5’s traditional Braviary. It has also only been sighted in the Hisui region, which eventually becomes known as the Sinnoh region.

Since Legends: Arceus takes place in the distant past, it's possible that, in the modern-day Pokémon world, Hisuian Braviary is either extinct or lives in areas inaccessible to humans. We’ll only discover the truth if or when it appears in another Pokémon game outside of Pokemon Go.

Like its original form, Hisuian Braviary’s appearance takes inspiration from eagles, but, rather than a bald eagle, its design looks similar to a Steller’s sea eagle. It shares the same dark plumage and, like the Steller’s sea eagle, migrates north for the winter.

Good luck battling Hisuian Braviary in Pokémon Go!
