Ampharos (Japanese: デンリュウ Denryu) is an Electric-type Pokémon introduced in Generation II.

It evolves from Flaaffy starting at level 30. It is the final form of Mareep.

Ampharos can Mega Evolve into Mega Ampharos using the Ampharosite.

Biology

Ampharos is a yellow, bipedal Pokémon with a white belly. It has conical ears with black stripes and a red orb on its forehead. Its long neck has several black rings around it near the base. Its stubby arms resemble flippers and each foot has a single white nail. It has a long, black-striped tail with a red orb at the tip. The orb on its tail can shine so bright, that it can be seen from space. People have used the light as a beacon, or to send signals across the ocean. Ampharos is generally found in grasslands, though it can also be found in farms alongside its pre-evolved forms Mareep and Flaaffy.

As Mega Ampharos, its toes turn black and it regrows white wool at the back of its head and over its tail, having its genes stimulated by Mega Evolution. This energy also awakens its long-sleeping dragon blood. Its long wooly tail has many small, red orbs attached to it. Its conical ears retain their stripes but are now segmented with swirled tips. When it increases the amount of electrical energy within itself, the red orbs on its body and wool emit a strong light.[1]

Trivia

An earlier Ampharos design circa 1997

Origin

Ampharos resembles a sheared sheep that its evolutionary family leads up to as they lose wool with each evolution. It also shares traits with a lighthouse, such as its height, stripes, and the beacon on the top; the two also share a name. It, as well as its pre-evolved forms, may have been based on the title of the sci-fi novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?.

Mega Ampharos's Dragon type, wooly mane, wooly tail, jewel-like orbs on its tail, and slender body suggest that it is based on a Chinese dragon.

Name origin

Ampharos is a combination of amp (a measure of electrical current) and pharos (Greek for lighthouse). It may also be a corruption of amparo (Portuguese and Spanish for aid and protection), referring to its role as a living lighthouse. The name may also incorporate amph- (Greek for both or on both sides) in reference to the two red orbs on its head and tail. Its body shares a similar shape to an amphora, as well as a similar name.

Denryu can be taken to mean 電流 denryū (electric current) or 電竜 den ryū (electric dragon), and it may incorporate 電球 denkyū (light bulb), referring to its tail.
