Tyranitar (Japanese: バンギラス Bangiras) is a dual-type Rock/Dark pseudo-legendary Pokémon.

It evolves from Pupitar starting at level 55. It is the final form of Larvitar.

Biology

Physiology

Tyranitar is a large, green, reptilian Pokémon. Tyranitar appears to have spikes near the end of its tail with the tip of the tail itself being segmented. Tyranitar's feet and hands each have three claws on them. Tyranitar has a blue rhombus on its chest and has two rows of green spikes running down its back. There are black, triangular holes on Tyranitar's knees, chest and back.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Like some Dragon Pokémon, Tyranitar is capable of learning various elemental attacks, including Surf and Template:Type2 moves. It can also learn some Dragon-type moves, such as Dragon Claw. Because it's a fully-evolved Pokémon, Tyranitar can learn Hyper Beam and Giga Impact.

Behavior

Like Ursaring, Tyranitar are dangerous Pokémon who are quite protective of their young. They are extremely strong, and their thick, rocky hides give them a good resistance. Because of this, they are always looking forward for a battle, and will not flinch at anything. If enraged, Tyranitar sets off outstanding earthquakes that can completely change the entire landscape, often representing a major headache for cartographers causing them to redraw maps.

Habitat

Tyranitar are rare in the wild. They normally live in the mountains.

Diet

In the anime

Tyranitar in the anime

Tyranitar first appeared in Celebi: Voice of the Forest. It was captured in a Dark Ball and used by Vicious.

When Ash and company entered the mind of Ash's Larvitar during Address Unown, they saw a vision of Larvitar being separated from its Tyranitar mother. That Tyranitar was seen during the following episode.

A Pupitar belonging to Rico evolved into Tyranitar in A Poached Ego.

In Pokémon Ranger and the Kidnapped Riolu! Part Two, a Tyranitar was among the Pokémon used to attack Dawn, Brock, Officer Jenny and Kellyn.

Pokédex entries

Episode Pokémon Source Entry
EP264 Tyranitar Ash's Pokédex Tyranitar, the Armor Pokémon. Tyranitar has a heavily armored body that can withstand powerful attacks and is able to crush a mountain with one hand.
This concludes the entries from the Original series.

In the manga

Pokémon Special

Prior to the events of Template:PSV, Silver was given a Pupitar from Lance. It evolved into Tyranitar prior to Silver's showdown with Gold in Template:PSV. Silver remarked that Tyranitar's level was so high that "even I can't control it", likely referencing the tendency for traded Pokémon to disobey. Silver eventually returned Tyranitar to Lance, deeming himself still unsuitable to own it.

Trivia

  • Tyranitar has the second highest base stat average of all non-legendary Pokémon, the first being Slaking. However, it is tied with the four other pseudo-legendary evolutions. Tyranitar is also tied with many other legendaries for base stat average, including Mew, Celebi, Deoxys, Latios and Latias.
  • Tyranitar is the only Pokémon that is not a Template:Type2 to learn Earthquake by leveling up. This may be because it evolves from a Pokémon that is part Ground.
  • No other Pokémon has the same type combination as Tyranitar.
  • Of all the evolved Pokémon that evolve by level alone, Tyranitar evolves to its final form later than any other Pokémon, at level 55. It shares this trait with Dragonite.
  • Tyranitar shares the same species name with Donphan. They are both known as the Armor Pokémon.
  • According to the FireRed and LeafGreen Pokédex descriptions, Larvitar is the Rock (Rock Skin) Pokémon, Pupitar is the Hard (Hard Shell) Pokémon, and Tyranitar is the Armor Pokémon. Put together, this says "Rock Hard Armor," one of Tyranitar's most notable traits.
  • Tyranitar is the only pseudo-legendary that is not used by any member of the Elite Four in the generation it was introduced.
  • All of the Tyranitar that have appeared in the anime have appeared with a Pokémon poacher. Three of them were owned by poachers and one was sought after by poachers.
  • The Tyranitar from the 4th movie makes the same roars that Dialga from movies 10-12 does.

Origin

It shares some physical resemblance to dinosaurs, and vaguely resembles Godzilla. Godzilla's iconic design is composed of various species of dinosaurs; the body structure of a Tyrannosaurus, the dorsal plates of a Stegosaurus, and the arms of an Iguanodon. Its penchant for shattering the countryside is similar to that of the Tarasque.

Name origin

Tyranitar's name is based on tyrannize, to violently antagonize. It may also be based on Tyrannosaurus, a carnivorous dinosaur that supposedly behaved violently. Its Japanese name may be a combination of 野蛮 yaban, savage, or 蛮 ban, barbarian, and 嫌い kirai, hate, or Anguirus, a Japanese kaijū.

In other languages

  • German: Despotar - Comes from despot and tar.
  • French: Tyranocif - From tyrant or Tyrannosaurus and nocif (noxious).
  • Korean: 마기라스 Magiraseu
