Rhyperior (Japanese: ドサイドン Dosidon) is a dual-type Ground/Rock Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

It evolves from Rhydon when traded holding a Protector. It is the final form of Rhyhorn.

Biology

Rhyperior is a large, brownish-gray Pokémon with two horns: one on its nose, and another one above it. The upper horn is smaller on a female Rhyperior. It has a club-like tail and its hide is partially covered by orange, rocky plates. It has blade-like protrusions on its elbows and has holes in the palms of its hands which works as a cannon or a gun. It also appears to have two thick, rectangular rocks above its eyes, resembling heavy eyebrows.

Rhyperior can insert rocks and boulders into its arms through the holes in its hands and then fire them like bullets, as seen with its former signature move, Rock Wrecker. However, it will occasionally insert and fire Geodude or Roggenrola by accident. Rhyperior has a very hard carapace; it can survive volcanic eruptions and deflect incoming attacks. This can throw the opponent off-balance before it drills into the foe. Rhyperior lives far up in the mountains.

Trivia

  • Rhyperior and its pre-evolved form share their category with Nidoking and Nidoqueen. They are all known as the Drill Pokémon.

Origin

Rhyperior's design appears to be an amalgam drawing inspiration from a rhinoceros, aspects of various dinosaurs (such as ceratopsids or Ankylosaurus in particular), bullet-resistant body armor vests, and cannon artillery. Its overall appearance also seems to allude to a proverbial miner sporting a mining drill, safety vest, and hard hat.

Name origin

Rhyperior is a combination of rhinoceros, hyperion, and superior. Rhy may also derive from the igneous rock called rhyolite, alluding to Rhyperior's Ground/Rock type combination.

Dosidon may be a combination of 土 do (ground/soil), 怒 do (anger), or ど do (prefix that makes a noun sound stronger), サイ sai (rhinoceros), and don (Ancient Greek for tooth, commonly used in the names of dinosaurs).
