Durant (Japanese: アイアント Aiant) is a dual-type Bug/Steel Pokémon.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

Biology

Physiology

Durant is a six-legged insect Pokémon with a grey body and black legs, bearing much resemblance to an ant. Its large pincers are jagged. Durant's red eyes are covered with the same steel-like carapace as the rest of its body. It has two antennae, each with a big gray ball on the end. It has a similarly shaped abdomen to some species of spider.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Behavior

Durant attack in groups; meaning they get along to an extent. To protect themselves against attacks from predators, they group together using each other's steel-like armor as shields. Durant gather leaves and bring them to their nest. There the leaves are rolled up into balls and stored for food.

Habitat

Durant live in mountains. They dig twisting tunnels in the mountains to form their nests.

Name origin

Durant may be a combination of durable or endurance (referring to its Steel type) and ant.

Aiant may be a combination of アイアン aian (iron) and ant.
