DietEdit

Carrion, fish, berries, offal and other small creatures. Basically anything it can catch. Can swallow bones whole, breaks them open to eat marrow inside.

What is offal?Edit

Offal is the entrails and internal organs of a butchered animal. The word does not refer to a particular list of organs, but includes most internal organs other than muscles or bones. Depending on the cultural context, offal may be considered as waste material that is thrown away, or as delicacies that command a high price. Offal not used directly for human or animal food is often processed in a rendering plant, producing material that is used for animal feed, fertilizer, or fuel.

Habitat Edit

Mostly desert; sometimes flies into cities to pick through offal and garbage. Can live anywhere, too.

Why it can live in a desert Edit

Fragmory is one of the Pokemon that can sweat - making it able to live in the desert - when it excretes was also looses very little water. When it sweats, it is excreting a form of waste,* losing very little water from it's body. The sweat is hard to see unless you're very close to them (it looks greyish).

  • NOTE: When humans sweat, it's a form of getting rid of waste, too. Sweat is a form urea.

Moulting Edit

Once a year or once every two years, a Fragmory moults parts of it's head and beak. (Making it "snub-nosed.") It also moults the wings, too. The pieces on the tip of the wing are first, second and so on. There are occasions though, when a Fragmory is frightened it may shed pieces of it's wing ("fright moult"). It is similar to the defense system of a porcupine! It also happens when it is agitated or angry - touching it will result in extreme pain if lodged in your skin! It It is hard to remove because of the structure of the feather.

FeathersEdit

Fragmory's feathers are made out of a strong iron-like keratin. Despite this, it can still fly. The end of the feathers have sharp edges; the feathers are also triangular.

ReproductionEdit

They mate for life. The male first flies up and make an inaudible clicking sound. He shows off his talons, if the female likes him, she'll crouch down in submission. The male land on the ground and start to mate. If the female doesn't like his courtship dance, the male will give her a fish. That entices the female and they will mate. The males have fangs to hold on to the male while mating. (Quadrople-fanged Fragmories are very rare! It only occurs in 1 out of 1000 males.

Fragmories imitating humans? Edit

This isn't true, unlike Chatot, which does copy off of humans, Fragmories don't. They are known to speak actual English or German (or any other language). They have a "seventh sense" that allows them to understand what words mean. Some are even known to recite poetry!

Fragmorys' intelligence Edit

Some animals' IQ's are compared to that of children's - Fragmory is much higher than this! It is compared to a teenagers'! They solve mazes and puzzles faster than other Pokemon. While it takes 10 minutes for a Rattata to solve a maze, it takes a Fragmory 4 minutes! They learn fast and remember things easily.
