Rampardos (Japanese: ラムパルド Rampald) is a Rock-type Fossil Pokémon.

It evolves from Cranidos starting at level 30, after it is revived from a Skull Fossil.

Biology

Rampardos is a large, dark-gray dinosaur-like Pokémon resembling a Pachycephalosaurus. It has a dome head, which obstructs its red eyes. It has blue stripes, one on its tail and one on each of its knees and wrists. It has various spikes: one on each knee, two on its blue collar on its neck, two short ones on its nose, and four on its head. Two of these head spikes are bigger than the other two. Its strength lies within its fierce head-butting attacks. A charging Rampardos can knock down virtually anything with one hit. It enjoys barging into objects with its head to train its strength and reflexes. 100 million years ago, it lived in jungles, where it tore down jungle trees while catching prey.

  • Rampardos has the lowest base Defense of all fully-evolved Rock-type Pokémon.

Origin

Rampardos is based on the family of dinosaurs known as Pachycephalosauridae, although the head ornamentation resembles that of the Stygimoloch or Dracorex because of its height.

Name origin

Rampardos may be a combination of rampart (a defensive wall), ram (to slam into) or rampage and hard. Dos is derived from Cranidos.

Rampald may be a combination of rampart or ram and hard or bald.
