Description: Mandibuzz resembles a turkey vulture wearing an apron made of a jawbone with very sharp teeth. She has tan feathers around her collar, dark brown on most of her body and wings, and light brown on her wing tips. Her head is featherless and pink, save for a tuft of dark brown feathers on the top of her head. This tuft of feathers is decorated with a bone that looks like a hair clip.

Mandibuzz incorporate bones into their fashion, as well as their nests. Different types of bones will fall in and out of their definition of fashionable over time. They will drag weakened prey back to their nests, especially Cubone who they target for their skull helmets. While they are very rough with outsiders, Mandibuzz are quite maternal and will take care of their own, often adopting young Vullaby who've lost their mothers.

Core Games

Mandibuzz in the core games

  • Sword Pokédex: Although it's a bit of a ruffian, this Pokémon will take lost Vullaby under its wing and care for them till they're ready to leave the nest.
  • Shield Pokédex: They adorn themselves with bones. There seem to be fashion trends among them, as different bones come into and fall out of popularity.
