Iron Treads (Japanese: テツノワダチ Tetsunowadachi) is a dual-type Ground/Steel Paradox Pokémon introduced in Generation IX.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon, but it appears to be a futuristic relative of Donphan. Its ancient counterpart is Great Tusk.

Biology

Iron Treads is a quadrupedal Pokémon with a spherical gray metallic body and a black underbelly. On its face are a pair of short black tusks and a black half-moon pixelated screen, which usually displays a pattern of a pair of angry red eyes; underneath them is a metal plate that can be retracted to reveal its mouth. Its most prominent physical feature is a segmented tread jutting out from its back, and extending to the front of its face. This tread is black in color, and has bright red glowing patterns accenting it. Iron Treads also has long black plate-like earlobes, and metal plates covering its legs, which can be retracted to aid in its rolling attacks.

Iron Treads is said to have a cruel nature. It is capable of swiftly curling up its body and rolling like a wheel to attack. Iron Treads will additionally curl up into this form and rock itself back and forth when sleeping. The trails it leaves behind are described as similar to scorched earth.[1] It also reportedly fatally injured one of the explorers of an expedition in the past. In an article from a September issue of Occulture magazine, it is said that there have been reports of Iron Treads in an arid corner of Paldea. It is said to resemble Donphan. Rumors suggest that Iron Treads is some kind of weapon using technology not of this world, though this is unproven.

At some point, an Iron Treads escaped Area Zero and consumed some Herba Mystica, which caused it to become the Quaking Earth Titan, one of the Titan Pokémon found in the Paldea region.
