Larvitar is a dual-type Rock/Ground Pokémon.

It evolves into Pupitar at level 30, which then evolves into Tyranitar on level 55.

Pokédex entry

Pokédex entry
A Larvitar is born deep under the ground. It must eat its way through the soil above and reach the surface for it to see its parents' faces.

Biology

Physiology

(From [1]) Larvitar is a small, green reptilian Pokémon with rocky skin. It has a blunt spike on top of its head, a short, rounded snout, and triangular, black markings below and on the upper corners of its red eyes. Red scales cover its diamond-shaped belly, and there are several small holes in its body. Its short arms lack fingers, while its feet have a single toenail each. It has a tail with a conical center surrounded by a ring of plate-like scales, causing it to resemble a tunnel-boring machine. Larvitar is born deep underground, far from its parent. It grows by consuming soil, and will enter its pupal stage upon eating an entire mountain's worth of earth. Larvitar usually lives in mountains, hills, and caves.
