    Trivia[]

    • Iron Thorns resembles MT from Pokéstar Studios, while it's shiny coloration resembles MT2.
    • Iron Thorns' English name resembles that of the throwing item Iron Thorn in the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series, though it uses the plural form "thorns" instead of the singular "thorn."
    • Iron Thorns is one of the Pokemon that does not have a hidden ability.

    Origin[]

    Iron Thorns is loosely based on Mecha-Godzilla, the robotic counterpart to the original Godzilla. It may also allude to MT and MT2, mechanical versions of Tyranitar that appear in Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2's Pokéstar Studios which are also references to Godzilla.

    Etymology[]

    Iron Thorns literally refers to the Pokémon's mechanical appearance and the spikes on the back of its body.

    Its japanese name, Tetstunoibara, can be read as (てつ)(いばら), meaning "iron thorns".
