Pupitar is a dual-type Rock/Ground Pokémon.

It evolves from Larvitar at level 30, and evolves into Tyranitar on level 55.

Pokédex entry

Pokédex entry
A Pupitar creates a gas inside its body that it ejects under compression to propel itself like a jet. Its body can withstand a collision with solid steel.

Biology

Physiology

(From [1]) Pupitar is encased inside a thick shell made of grayish-blue rock-its hardness comparable to that of bedrock. Its red eyes can be seen through two holes in the shell, and two more holes directly above resemble eyebrows. The upper portion of its body is covered by a mask-like plate with four large spikes on either side. Three additional spikes protrude from its forehead. While its arms and legs are developing inside the shell, Pupitar relieves itself by using vented gas to propel itself around, and can generate enough force to knock down mountains. Pupitar lives and moves freely around harsh mountain ranges.
