Larvitar (Japanese: ヨーギラス Yogiras) is a Rock/Ground-type Pokémon.

Biology

Physiology

Larvitar are small dark green reptilian Pokémon with rocky skin. They have a erect spine on top of their heads and several holes or ports on the sides of their bodies. They also have a red rhombus-shaped belly of sorts.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Behavior

Larvitar are usually quiet. Due to its larval stage, their main interest focuses on eating. Whenever a Larvitar is spotted, it's likely to be seen feeding on soil.

Habitat

Larvitar usually live in mountains, hills, and sometimes, in caves. The mountains they live in are usually their meals. A single Larvitar can eat a mountain in a few weeks.

Diet

Larvitar feeds on soil.

In the anime

File:Ash larvitar.jpg
Larvitar in the anime.

Larvitar first appeared in Pikachu's PikaBoo. Pikachu and co. invited Larvitar and its friends to a game of Hide 'n' Seek, though Larvitar refused. Later, it was feeling left out and viciously kicked a rock at a lawnmower (which went ridiculously haywire afterwards).

Ash had a Larvitar he hatched from an egg given to him by Professor Elm to deliver to Mt. Silver.

In Pinch Healing, a Larvitar was being babysat by a Poké-Sitter named Matt. Ash and his friends were helping him with his job. The Larvitar was shy, and used Sandstorm when confronted. By the end of the episode, however, it warmed up to the group, particularly May.

In the manga

Crystal's Arcanine was injured by attacked by a Larvitar five years prior to the plot of the volume, causing it to go on a rampage until Crystal calmed it down. The same Larvitar returned when Crystal returned to Mt. Mortar, tormenting Crystal and Arcanine until her Bayleef defeated it.
