Bastiodon (Japanese: トリデプス Torideps) is a dual-type Rock/Steel Fossil Pokémon.

It evolves from Shieldon starting at level 30, after it is revived from an Armor Fossil.

Biology

Bastiodon appears to be a cross between a Zuniceratops and a bulldozer. Its dark gray, square head resembles a castle wall, complete with four cream yellow, window-like spots with a black outline, three dark gray spikes on the top, and two larger gray spikes in the upper corners. Bastiodon's triangular nose extends from the middle of its shield-like head down over its lips and appears to be pierced by a gray, horizontal spike. Four spikes jut downward and four large, blunt tusks protrude upward from its dark gray lower jaw. Bastiodon's cream yellow eyes are partially obscured by the nasal spike and spaced-out tusks. Its thick, cream yellow body is further protected by a gray ridge and dark gray plates on its back, jagged growths on its legs, and a plated tail. Despite its rough, intimidating appearance, Bastiodon is surprisingly docile, caring, and feeds on grass and Berries. If a herd of Bastiodon is attacked, the adults will line up in a wall around their young. Their rock-hard heads can repulse any attack.

In the anime

Major appearances

Bastiodon made its debut appearance in the anime in Ancient Family Matters! under the ownership of Byron. It also appeared in Dealing With Defensive Types! where it was used in the Gym battle against Ash.

Minor appearances


Pokédex entries

Episode Pokémon Source Entry
DP107 Bastiodon Dawn's Pokédex Bastiodon, the Shield Pokémon and the evolved form of Shieldon. Its massively powerful shield-like face can deflect even the strongest of attacks.
This concludes the entries from the Diamond & Pearl series.

In the manga

Diamond's Bastiodon, Don

In the Phantom Thief Pokémon 7 manga

Bastiodon made a minor appearance in Phantom Thief Pokémon 7 under the ownership of Mako. The reporter used the large Shield Pokémon to block the titular thief's progress, but didn't actually battle him.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Diamond's Shieldon, nicknamed "Don," evolved into a Bastiodon fighting several opponents at the Galactic Veilstone Building. Already a sturdy Pokémon prior to evolving, this solidified its strong defenses even more.

In the Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Adventure!

Like in the games, Bastiodon appears alongside Byron. He used it during his training sessions with Hareta.

Trivia

Origin

Bastiodon is based on a ceratopsian dinosaur. Its protective growth resembles a castle wall. Its head resembles that of Zuniceratops.

Name origin

Bastiodon is a combination of bastion or bastille and don (from δόντι dónti, Greek for tooth; a suffix in various dinosaur names). The spike through its nose is reminiscent of the nose bones from various indigenous tribes.

Torideps is a combination of 砦 toride (fortress) and Triceratops.
