Rhyperior (Japanese: ドサイドン Dosidon) is a dual-type Ground/Rock Pokémon.

It evolves from Rhydon when traded holding a Protector. It is the final form of Rhyhorn.

Biology

Rhyperior is a large, brownish-gray Pokémon with two horns: one on its nose, and another one above it. The upper horn is smaller on a female Rhyperior. It has a club-like tail and its hide is partially covered by orange, rocky plates. It has blade-like protrusions on its elbows and has holes in the palms of its hands which works as a cannon or a gun. Rhyperior can insert rocks and boulders into its arms through the holes in its hands and then fire them like bullets. However, it will occasionally insert and fire Geodude by accident. It also appears to have two thick, rectangular rocks above its eyes, resembling heavy eyebrows. Rhyperior lives far up in the mountains.

Major appearances

A Rhyperior first appeared in the main series Challenging a Towering Figure! under the ownership of Palmer. Using powerful attacks like Megahorn and its signature move, Rock Wrecker, it battled and defeated Ash's Grotle, even though Grotle swallowed its own Energy Ball to power up its moves.

Another Rhyperior appeared in Piplup, Up and Away!, under the ownership of a Trainer.

A Rhyperior owned by Forrest appeared in SS025, where it was used to battle against Nurse Joy and her Latias. However, the Drill Pokémon was defeated by the Eon Pokémon.

Minor appearances

Rhyperior first appeared in a short cameo appearance in the opening sequence of Giratina and the Sky Warrior, under the command of Brendan.

A Rhyperior appeared in the opening scenes of Zoroark: Master of Illusions.

A Rhyperior appeared in The Journalist from Another Region!.

Trivia

  • Rhyperior and its pre-evolution share their species name with Nidoking and Nidoqueen. They are all known as the Drill Pokémon.
  • Rhyperior has the highest HP base stat among all Ground-type Pokémon.
  • Rhyperior's evolution line are the only Pokémon with the Rock/Ground combination to have Ground as its primary type.
  • Rhyperior and its pre-evolutions are the only Rock-type Pokémon that belong in the Field Egg Group.

Origin

It appears to draw much of its inspiration from a rhinoceros, aspects of various dinosaurs (such as the Triceratops) and a tank. Overall in its entire appearance, it also resembles a miner. It may also have connections with an Ankylosaurus, hence the clubbed tail and many defensive plates.

Name origin

Rhyperior is a combination of rhinoceros and superior.

Dosidon may be a combination of 土 do (ground/soil), 怒 do (anger), or ど do (prefix that makes a noun sound stronger), サイ sai (rhinoceros), and don (Ancient Greek for tooth, commonly used in the names of dinosaurs).
