Rhyhorn's most well known method of attack is to charge straight into things. A charging Rhyhorn can knock a trailer flying. Rhyhorn can also use various {{t|Rock}} and {{t|Ground}} attacks.

===Behavior===
 
According to earlier entries in the Pokédex, Rhyhorn is actually brainless. This perception was, most likely, not meant to be taken literally. This conclusion of brainlessness was most likely derived from Rhyhorn’s exceedingly unintelligent methods of battle. Rhyhorn’s animal instinct is simply to charge at any enemy or barrier that threatens its well-being. The species is also perceived to have a very short memory, and is seemingly often confused by circumstances it directly influenced. It is popularly believed that they are only able to remember one thing at a time. Despite their severe setbacks in intelligence, they have been recorded as being surprisingly perceptive once captured.
 
 
===Habitat===

Pokédex entries

This Pokémon was unavailable prior to Generation I.
Generation I
Red Its massive bones are 1000 times harder than human bones. It can easily knock a trailer flying.
Blue
Yellow A Pokémon with a one-track mind. Once it charges, it won't stop running until it falls asleep.
Stadium Its bones are 1,000 times harder than human bones. Using its durability and strength, it can destroy tall buildings.
Generation II
Gold It is inept at turning because of its four short legs. It can only charge and run in one direction.
Silver It doesn't care if there is anything in its way. It just charges and destroys all obstacles.

Stadium 2 It is inept at turning because of its four short legs. It can only charge and run in one direction.
Generation III
Ruby Rhyhorn runs in a straight line, smashing everything in its path. It is not bothered even if it rushes headlong into a block of steel. This Pokémon may feel some pain from the collision the next day, however.
Sapphire Rhyhorn's brain is very small. It is so dense, while on a run it forgets why it started running in the first place. It apparently remembers sometimes if it demolishes something.

Trivia

  • In the games, Rhyhorn has the exact same cry as Charizard.
  • Rhyhorn's evolution line are the only Pokémon with the Rock/Ground combination to have Ground as its primary type.
  • In HeartGold and SoulSilver, Brock uses a Rhyhorn with the Ability Sturdy, even though Rhyhorn cannot normally have that Ability.

Origin

Its design appears to be inspired by an Indian rhinoceros, with similar plated armor, and an Uintatherium from whom it may have taken its flat head and horn, with elements of a triceratops.

Name origin

Rhyhorn may be a combination of rhinoceros and horn. Rhy may also derive from the igneous rock called rhyolite, alluding to its Ground/Rock type combination.

Sihorn is a combination of 犀 sai (rhinoceros) and horn.
