Tyranitar (Japanese: バンギラス Bangirasu) is a Rock/Dark-type Pseudo-Legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation II.

Biology

Physiology

Tyranitar is a large, bipedal dinosaurian Pokémon. It has a gray diamond shaped scale on its belly and has a hard green-colored armor covering its entire body, with some holes on it. Several spikes protrude from its body. Its arms and legs are small and chubby with three sharp claws extending from it.

It has a pair of sharp, pointed teeth on both of its jaws, along with a large powerful tail protruding from its back.

Behavior

Tyranitar is a powerful Pokémon with an insolent nature. It is extremely strong, and its thick, rocky hide gives it a good resistance to all forms of attack. Because of this, it is always looking for a battle and will not flinch at anything, though ignores opponents that it thinks are not worth its time. If enraged, Tyranitar sets off outstanding earthquakes that can completely change the entire landscape, destroying houses and mountains, often forcing cartographers to draw up new maps. It lives in nests made from demolished mountains. As a Mega Tyranitar, its instincts have only become more destructive, to the point where it may not even be able to hear its Trainer's orders.

Natural Abilities

With Sand Stream, Tyranitar can summon a sandstorm which lasts for a while, making it even more durable against Special attacks, and damaging any Pokémon that is not immune to it. Tyranitar can resist most forms of attack and can learn various powerful moves, including Focus Blast, Outrage, and Iron Tail. It can prevent opponents from eating their own Berry if Tyranitar has Unnerve as its ability.

Evolution

Tyranitar is the final evolution in Larvitar's evolutionary line. Pupitar evolves into Tyranitar at level 55. Tyranitar can further evolve into Mega Tyranitar, using its Tyranitarite.

Trivia

Origin

Tyranitar draws inspiration from lizards and dinosaurs. It however appears to be mostly based on the famous movie monster Godzilla.

Etymology

Tyranitar comes from "tyrant" and "tar" (a dark, sticky substance that fossils often form in). It may also be derived from Tyrannosaurus rex.
