Armaldo (Japanese: アーマルド Armaldo) is a dual-type Rock/Bug Pokémon.

It evolves from Anorith starting at level 40.

Biology

Armaldo is a fossilized, prehistoric Pokémon no longer found in the wild, and must be evolved from an Anorith resurrected from a Claw Fossil.

Physiology

Armaldo has a long neck, and two blade-like arms. It is covered in thick, heavy-duty, armored plates. Hence, the name, the Plate Pokémon. Armaldo's tough armor makes all attacks bounce off. This Pokémon's two enormous claws can be freely extended or contracted. They have the power to punch right through a steel slab. An amphibious Pokémon, it usually lives on land. However, when it hunts for prey, it dives beneath the ocean. It swims around using its two large wings.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Behavior

When bothered, Armaldo responds with powerful attacks. It calms itself down afterwards by eating good food.

Trivia

Origin

It appears to be based upon the Anomalocaris, although it shares some physical traits with dinosaurs.

Name origin

Armaldo's name possibly originated from a corruption of armor; however, it could also be a combination of armor and armadillo.
