Rhydon is a Ground/Rock dual-type Pokémon.

It evolves from Rhyhorn at level 42, and evolves into Rhyperior through unknown method.

Pokédex Entry

Pokédex entry
Its horn, which rotates like a drill, destroys tall buildings with one strike. It stands on its hind legs, and its brain is well developed.

Biology

(Bulbapedia) Rhydon is a large, gray, bipedal Pokémon with features of both dinosaurs and rhinoceroses. It has a cream-colored, drill-like horn on its snout, the female having a smaller horn than the male. There are other protrusions on the head as well, including a spike curving forward from the middle of its head, two triangular, points resembling ears to the sides, a wide, wavy crest under the ears, and spiky ridges on its cheeks. It has red eyes and two fangs protruding from its upper jaw. It has a cream-colored stomach and a row of spikes down its back. Rhydon has a long tail with skinny, black stripes. Rhydon is a physically powerful Pokémon. It is recorded as being able to topple buildings with a sweeping blow of its tail, and its horn is able to bore through solid rock and shatter diamonds. Rhydon is protected from heat and physical blows by its armor-like hide. It is stated to be capable of passing unscathed through streams of magma and withstanding a direct blow from a cannonball without being harmed. However, because of this tough hide, it is insensitive. Rhydon has a well-developed brain, but can also be forgetful. It lives in rough terrain.

Trivia

Origin

(Bulbapedia)It appears to draw much of its inspiration from a rhinoceros and some aspects of various dinosaurs, such as ceratopsids.

Name Origin

(Bulbapedia)Rhydon may be a combination of rhinoceros and don. Rhy may also derive from the igneous rock called rhyolite, alluding to Rhydon's Ground/Rock type combination. Don, from the Latin dominus, may emphasize Rhydon's being the final evolution of its line (pre-Generation IV), as it is a title akin to lord in several Romance languages; -odon, ultimately from ὀδούς, the ancient Greek word for tooth, is a suffix commonly used in dinosaur names, and so Rhydon's name could be a reference to those prehistoric creatures as well.
