Tyranitar (Japanese: バンギラス Bangiras) is a dual-type Rock/Dark pseudo-legendary Pokémon.

It evolves from Pupitar starting at level 55. It is the final form of Larvitar.

Biology

Physiology

Tyranitar is a large dinosaur-like Pokémon. The couple of fangs in the upper and lower jaws, and the fingers and toes culminating in claws, contribute to the menacing appearance of this Pokémon.

However, this Pokémon's most prominent body feature is the green, armor-like hide that covers its body. Despite its tough appearance, this hide is flexible enough to allow movement. Many spikes protrude from the back of its head, neck, shoulders and the tip of the tail. The armor also presents a couple of holes at the knees and the back, and four holes at the chest. There are also two blue rhombus-shaped pieces of armor that cover the creature’s belly and back. Looking closely, this Pokémon resembles a combination of its pre-evolutions.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Like some Dragon Pokémon, Tyranitar is capable of learning various elemental attacks, such as Surf, Flamethrower, and Thunderbolt. It can also learn some Dragon-type moves, such as Dragon Claw, and can also learn all three of the elemental fang moves. Because it's a fully-evolved Pokémon, Tyranitar can learn Hyper Beam and Giga Impact.

Behavior

Like Ursaring, Tyranitar are dangerous Pokémon who are quite protective of their young. They are extremely strong, and their thick, rocky hides give them a good resistance. Because of this, they are always looking forward for a battle, and will not flinch at anything. Despite this, or possibly because the underside of Tyranitar's foot may be somewhat less well-armored than the rest of its body, it can have thorns stuck in its feet in which case the pain can cause it to become angry. If enraged, Tyranitar sets off outstanding earthquakes that can completely change the entire landscape, often representing a major headache for cartographers causing them to redraw maps. Tyranitar is known to display affection to persons that have been helpful to it by nuzzling them.

Habitat
