Armaldo (Japanese: アーマルド Armaldo) is a dual-type Rock/Bug Fossil Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

It evolves from Anorith starting at level 40, after it is revived from a Claw Fossil.

Biology

Armaldo is a bipedal, amphibious Pokémon, somewhat resembling a mantis shrimp. It is covered with thick, grayish-blue plates. There are accents of yellow, black, white, and red throughout its body. Its oblong eyes protrude from the sides of its head. A black pattern with two red, teardrop-shaped spots covered the center of its head and a yellow lower jaw. Three pairs of wing-like appendages extend from the sides of its long, thick neck. A plate of armor on its back has four short spikes and two triangular, yellow-rimmed wings extending from underneath. Its scaled chest and belly are rimmed with yellow lines as well, and there are two large yellow plates in the center of its chest. Its segmented arms extend from holes in these plates, each with a large, black claw. The legs are also segmented, with black knees. A pair of black fins tips its long tail.

In ancient times, Armaldo lived on land by the water's-edge, and dived into the ocean to hunt for prey. The large wings on its back were used for swimming, while its thick shell protected it from enemy attacks. Its strong claws can break stones and punch through a steel slab. Furthermore, they can be freely extended or retracted.

201 Spoiler warning: this article may contain major plot or ending details. 201
  • Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky: An Armaldo serves a mentor to the future Guildmaster Wigglytuff while he was still an Igglybuff. Initially reluctant due to Igglybuff's devil-may-care attitude, he takes him on as an apprentice after sensing a powerful intuition from the baby Pokémon and eventually grows close to the young child. He tends to lampshade many RPG staples, such as traps and bosses, but is just as easily fooled by them. Armaldo is in fact an outlaw and is caught after clearing the Fortune Ravine. Igglybuff protests wildly and is about to unleash a powerful Hyper Voice (the first show of his infamous temper), until Armaldo calms him down and explains the situation; he gives the still-protesting Igglybuff a Defend Globe (the first treasure the pair found on their first adventure) as a gift to remember him by, and Armaldo willingly gives himself up to the authorities. This story serves as the backdrop for the second Special Episode, Igglybuff the Prodigy.
  • He later reappears in Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon, where another Igglybuff requests the player to deliver a Tiny Reviver Seed to Armaldo. Upon delivery, Armaldo muses about another Igglybuff he knew that had become a respected guildmaster.
