Description: After spending so long building up its strength as Bagon and changing inside its shell as Shelgon, Salamence finally has the wings it had always dreamed of. The bulk of its body is blue, but its large, sharp wings are bright red. It also has red stripes on its forehead, neck, and legs, while its belly and jaw are grey. It has three fins on either side of its head, and three, sharp claws on each foot. When happy, Salamence flies about, shooting fire every which way to express its delight in finally having wings; however, when angry, Salamence goes on a rampage that won't cease until it has worn itself ragged.

As Mega Salamence, its temper is even worse. Mega Evolution turns Salamence's pair of wings into a single, huge crescent - somthing that infuriates the Dragon. Earning it the nickname "Blood-soaked Crescent", Mega Salamence are especially brutal, some even turning on their Trainers.
