The Black Tyranitar (Japanese: 黒いバンギラス Black Bangiras) is a Pokémon in the Pokémon Gold & Silver: The Golden Boys manga.

History

The Black Tyranitar is Cianwood's legendary Pokémon that once wrecked havoc in the Johto region many years ago. It had uncontrollable power, and it took nearly all of the Fighting Pokémon in Cianwood to weaken it before it can be sealed in an ancient Poké Ball made from a Red Apricorn in the backyard of Cianwood Gym. During the present, Black unseals it and it does the same thing as it did many years ago.

Gold tried his best to fight the Black Tyranitar and seal it back in, but he couldn't do it on his own. Eusine was one of the people who helped out Gold. The Black Tyranitar destroyed nearly all of Cianwood City before Jasmine arrived with the citizens of Olivine City to help. The Black Tyranitar made a huge jump in an attempt to land on Olivine City to destroy the rest of the Johto region. Gold requested the help of a Lugia that he had befriended earlier. Lugia stopped Tyranitar on its way and fired a powerful attack, which sent Tyranitar back all the way to Cianwood City. It fainted when it landed back on Cianwood City.

Gold attempted to throw a Level Ball, but it bounced off. Even with the combined level of all the Pokémon presented (including the citizens of Cianwood and Olivine City), the level of the Black Tyranitar was too high. Black, on the other hand, was reluctant to send out his Pokémon. However, he eventually sent out his Pokémon as the Tyranitar made a fool out of him. With the level of Black's Pokémon added in, the Level Ball finally captures the Black Tyranitar and saved the Johto region. It is eventually placed back under the seal in the backyard.

Personality and characteristics

The Black Tyranitar has far superior athletic skills as seen when it jumped from Cianwood to Olivine in one leap, something that would have been impossible.
