Rhydon (Japanese: サイドン Saidon) is a Ground/Rock-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

Biology

Physiology

It is a gray rock-hard Pokémon that developed a long tail and learned to stand bipedally, meaning on two legs. It is a rhinoceros-like creature that can crush rocks and has a long drill that can drill through rocks.

Gender differences

A female Rhydon is similar in appearance to a male Rhydon. However, her horn is shorter than that of a male Rhydon's.

Natural abilities

This Pokémon's brain developed after it stood up on its hind legs. Its drill horn bores tunnels through solid rock, even diamonds. Records show it as being able to topple buildings with a sweeping blow of its tail. Its hide is so thick and protective that Rhydon can thrive in very hot places, as well as being almost impossible to hurt in battle, at the cost being unable to sense its surroundings.

Evolution

Rhydon is the evolved form of Rhyhorn at level 42. Rhydon evolves into the Generation IV Pokémon, Rhyperior, when traded while holding the Protector.

Trivia

  • Rhydon and its family members are the only Pokémon to have a Rock/Ground combination where it is switched around with the only Pokémon having Ground-type as the primary type and Rock as the secondary.
  • Rhydon was the very first Pokémon to be designed.
    • However, a hidden Pokemon Sun And Moon easter egg shows that Diglett was the first planned pokemon.
  • Rhydon shares the same species name as Nidoking and Nidoqueen, they're all known as "Drill Pokémon".
  • All glitch Pokémon in the No. 000 or N0.152 range will be changed into Rhydon.
    • The Pokémon's moves will be replaced by Rhydon's moves at the level it was caught at, and it will become an unstable hybrid when sent to Bill's PC.
  • In Pokémon GO, Rhydon is one of the few Pokémon that can have a CP of 3000 or more that is not a Mythical or Legendary.
  • Thanks to the anime episode,Riddle Me This, where Ash's Pikachu fought Blaine's Rhydon in and defeated it by aiming an electric attack at its the horn, (despite being a Ground-type and immune to Electric attacks)popular, albeit misquoted, internet meme where "aim for the horn!", was spawned.

Origin

Rhydon appears to be based off a rhinoceros but it shares some traits with dinosaurs, most similarly to the Triceratops family.

Name origin

Rhydon is derived from "rhinoceros" and "don", which is Greek for "tooth" and is also a common suffix for dinosaur names.
