Rhyhorn (Japanese: サイホーン Sihorn) is a dual-type Ground/Rock Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

It evolves into Rhydon starting at level 42, which evolves into Rhyperior when traded while holding a Protector. In Legends: Arceus, however, Rhydon evolves into Rhyperior when exposed to a Protector.

Biology

Rhyhorn is a rhinoceros-like Pokémon with a body covered in gray, rocky plates. Its underside and rear are smooth, and it has four short legs with two claws on each foot. It has a triangular head with narrow, red eyes, two fangs protruding from its upper jaw, small, triangular openings on the upper sides, and a short horn on the tip of its snout. A female will have a shorter horn than a male. A spiked ridge runs along its back. In addition to its rocky hide, its bones are a thousand times harder than human bones.

Rhyhorn's brain is very small, giving it a one-track mind. When it runs, it forgets why it started and continues until it falls asleep. However, it may recall the reason upon demolishing something. Due to its short legs, it is inept at turning and can only run in straight lines. It does not care if obstacles get in the way, merely smashing through them or sending them flying. However, it may feel pain the day after a collision. Rhyhorn lives in rough terrain. Rhyhorn is powerful enough to shatter skyscraper or mountains instantly after charging forward with head tackles.

Trivia

Origin

Rhyhorn's design appears to be inspired by an Indian rhinoceros, which has similar plated armor; and an Uintatherium, from whom it may have taken its flat head and horn. Its design also has elements of ceratopsids.

Name origin

Rhyhorn may be a combination of rhinoceros and horn.

Sihorn is a combination of 犀 sai (rhinoceros) and horn.
