Salamence (Japaneseボーマンダ Bohmander) is a dual-type Dragon/Flying pseudo-legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

It evolves from Shelgon starting at level 50. It is the final form of Bagon. It can Mega Evolve into Mega Salamence using the Salamencite.

Biology

Salamence is a quadruped, draconic Pokémon with a long, tapering tail. It is primarily blue with a gray lower jaw and thickly scaled underside. There are red markings on its throat, the underside of its tail, and stripes on the inner surface of its legs. Additionally, there are raised red ridges above its eyes. Three flat fins protrude from either side of its head, possibly acting in the same manner that a Canard would on an aircraft. It has two pairs of pointed teeth, one in the upper jaw and one in the lower. Each of its short legs has three claws. This Pokémon’s powerful desire to fly triggered a mutation that allowed it to grow large, red wings. As an expression of joy, it flies around and releases blasts of fire. If enraged, it loses all sense of self and flies into an uncontrollable rampage, destroying everything around it until it tires itself out. This Pokémon is found living in rough terrain.

 

As Mega Salamence, its wings meld together into a single huge, crescent-shaped wing. According to the anime, the hard, yet very flexible properties of its wings allow them to be used as blades in mid-air battles. Its face, neck, body and tail are narrower, and its tail is noticeably shorter in length. The ridges above its eyes are now far less prominent, and it no longer possesses the thick, gray scaling over its lower jaw. Instead, the smooth red flesh underneath has been left exposed, increasing its streamline appearance. The upper pair of fins resting on the sides of its head are now elongated and tapered. The lower pair has not changed much. However, the middle set now take the form of quarter-arches, spanning towards the bridge of the nose. The remnants of its shelled underbelly have been drastically transformed into a segmented, more aerodynamic, vest-like armored frame. This frame encases its chest and shoulders with the pieces interlocking whenever Mega Salamence tucks in its front forelegs.

As a result of its Mega Evolution, Salamence becomes even more brutal than ever before, to the point where it is liable to turn against the Trainer who raised it. Because of this, Mega Salamence is feared as "the blood-soaked crescent". Anything and anyone in Salamence's path gets sliced in two by its bladelike wings, posing no interruption to its flight.

In the Ash & Pikachu manga

Drake owns a Salamence which appeared in Battle Till The End! Drake, One Of The Elite Four!.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Main article: Zinnia's Salamence

When Ruby was a child, he battled a Salamence that attacked him and Sapphire while the two were playing outside. After being defeated by Ruby and having scarred his forehead with its Dragon Claw in the process, the Salamence went on a rampage and destroyed a lab, freeing Rayquaza, which was in captivity at that time, in the process. This resulted in Norman being banned from the Gym Leader test for five years. This encounter changed both Ruby and Sapphire and their views on Pokémon, as well as themselves. In Ruby's case, he felt he was too strong, and in order to keep himself back, he focused on Pokémon Contests. Sapphire, on the other hand, felt weak after the encounter and decided she had to become stronger, and spent much of her time in the wild honing her battle skills.

In the Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire chapterZinnia reveals that her Salamence is the very same one that Ruby fought in his childhood. Zinnia had ordered Salamence to free Rayquaza from being experimented upon by the Pokémon Association. Salamence faces Ruby again in the Sky Pillar, along with his companion Latios, and is Mega Evolved during the battle, but still loses.

Years later, in the Emerald chapterDome Ace Tucker is shown to be in possession of another Salamence, with which he defeats Sapphire. While Sapphire acknowledges the man's overwhelming skill, she also adds that such a Pokémon is a hard one to fight against with her phobic old experience many years back.

In PAORAS04, a Salamence appeared silhouetted in Steven's explanation about the Draconid people.

In the Pokémon Battle Frontier manga

Tucker used a Salamence which he used in a Tag Battle against Enta in Introducing the Frontier Brains!.

Trivia

Origin

Salamence appears to be based on a salamander, most likely the Hida salamander or Anderson's Salamander combined with the archetypal fire-breathing European dragon. This is further backed up by Salamence featuring three prominent finlets on either side of its head, which can be interpreted as external gills. These external gills are typical for many species of amphibians.

Name origin

Salamence may be a combination of salamander and menacevengeancevehemence, or violence (in regard to its brutal nature).

Bohmander is a combination of 暴行 bōkō (assault, outrage, or violent act) and salamander.
