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


Rhyhorn is a rhino-like Pokémon that is rock hard. It has spikes on top of it to protect itself from its foes. It walks on four legs and has a horn that can be used as a drill. And it has two toes on each foot and two sharp teeth sticking out of its mouth.

Rhyhorn Original Art

Special abilities

Rhyhorn can have the ability Rock Head or the ability Lightningrod. Rock Head prevents Rhyhorn from sustaining recoil damage. Lightningrod directs all Electric-type attacks to Rhyhorn. Its body is clad in a thick hide, and its tackles topple buildings. Unfortunately, it is not very clever, and can only run in straight lines. It is very difficult to catch in Safari Zone due to missing with Safari Balls.


Rhyhorn evolves into Rhydon at level 42.
