Pupitar (Japanese: サナギラス Sanagiras) is a dual-type Rock/Ground Pokémon introduced in Generation II.

It evolves from Larvitar starting at level 30 and evolves into Tyranitar starting at level 55.

Biology

Pupitar is a Pokémon encased inside a thick grayish-blue shell, sporting a hardness that is comparable to bedrock. Its red eyes can be seen through two holes in the shell, and two more holes directly above resemble eyebrows. The upper portion of its body is covered by a mask-like plate with four large spikes on either side. Three additional spikes protrude from its forehead. While its arms and legs are developing inside the shell, Pupitar uses compressed gas to propel itself around and can generate enough force to knock down mountains. Pupitar lives and moves freely around harsh mountain ranges.

Pupitar may be derived from pupa, the stage in some insects between the larval stage and adulthood.

Sanagiras may be a combination of 蛹 sanagi (pupa) and 嫌い kirai (hated).
