Hippopotas (Japanese: ヒポポタス Hipopotasu) is a Ground-type Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

Biology

Physiology

Hippopotas appears to be a brown-yellow hippo with army patterns who has a small body with big nostrils where it can presumably shoot sand out of. It also has small humps above its eyes along with a big mouth having large jaws.

Natural abilities

Hippopotas has the ability Sand Stream and the hidden ability Sand Force. Sand Stream allows Hippopotas to summon a sandstorm throughout an entire battle. Sand Force increases the Power of Rock, Steel, and Ground-type moves by 30%. If not one of those types, they gain immunity to sandstorms.

Evolution

Hippopotas evolves into Hippowdon once it reaches level 34.
