This Pokémon’s facial appearance is identical to that of the infamous tropical mosquitoes. Red and black accents are evident throughout its structure. It has an abnormally shaped head that appears to be flattened.

It has pronounced red anthropoid eyes and a pair of red and black striped antennae. It also has needle-like structures that resemble a proboscis sticking out of its face. These actually do some cool stuff. Buzzwole uses them to suck energy from its enemies, which makes him stronger.

You can also see two pairs of orange-tinted wings attached to its back. Its muscles stick out like a sore thumb as if they are urging you to notice them.

Why would any Pokémon even try to pick a fight with him?
