Rhyhorn (Japanese: サイホーン Sihorn) is a dual-type Ground/Rock Pokémon.

It evolves into Rhydon starting at level 42, which evolves into Rhyperior when traded holding a Protector.

Biology

Rhyhorn is a rhinoceros-like creature with a body covered in gray, rocky plates. Its underside and rear are smooth, and it has four short legs with two claws on each foot. It has a triangular head with narrow, red eyes, two fangs protruding from its upper jaw, and small, triangular openings on the upper sides. A spiked ridge runs along its back, and it has a single short horn on the tip of its snout. The female has a shorter horn than the male. In addition to its rocky hide, its bones are a thousand times harder than human bones.

Rhyhorn's brain is very small, giving it a one-track mind. When it runs, it forgets why it started and continues until it falls asleep. However, it may recall the reason upon demolishing something. Rhyhorn runs in a straight line due to its short legs making it inept at turning. It does not care if obstacles get in the way, merely smashing through them or sending them flying. Sometimes it may feel pain the day after a collision. Rhyhorn lives in rough terrain.

  • In HeartGold and SoulSilver, Brock uses a Rhyhorn with the Ability Sturdy, even though Rhyhorn cannot normally have that Ability.
  • Rhyhorn and its evolutions are the only Rock-type Pokémon that belong in the Field Egg Group.

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 ceratopsids.

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.
