Rhydon (Japanese: サイドン Saidon) is a Ground/Rock-type Pokémon.

Appearance

It is a rock hard Pokémon that developed a long tail and learned to stand bipedally, meaning on two legs. It is a rhino-like creature that can crush rocks and has a long drill that can drill through rocks.

Special abilities

Rhydon can have the ability Rock Head or the ability Lightningrod. Rock Head prevents Rhydon from sustaining recoil damage. Lightningrod directs Electric-type attacks to Rhydon. This Pokémon is disadvantaged when attacking Grass, Fighting, Water, or other Ground-type Pokémon. This Pokémon's brain developed after it stood up on its hind legs. Its drill horn bores tunnels through solid rock. Its hide is so thick and protective that Rhydon can thrive in very hot places.

Evolution

Rhydon is the evolved form of Rhyhorn. Rhydon evolves into the Generation IV Pokémon, Rhyperior, when traded while holding the Protector.
