Tyranitar (バンギラス Bangirasu) is a Rock/Dark-type Pseudo-Legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation II. It has a counterpart from Generation VIII known as Duraludon.

Biology

Physiology

Tyranitar is a large, bipedal dinosaurian Pokémon. It has a gray-blue 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.

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. However, it appears to be mostly based on the famous movie monster (or kaiju) 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.

Its Japanese name バンギラス (Bangirasu) is a play on Anguirus (アンギラス Angirasu), a kaiju from the Godzilla franchise), and may incorporate the words  (ban, "barbarian") and "bang" (バン ban).
