Rhyhorn is a Ground/Rock-type Pokémon that evolves into Rhydon at Lv. 42, which evolves into Rhyperior when traded while holding a Protector.


Rhyhorn is a rhinoceros-like creature with a body covered in gray, rocky plates. Its underside and rear are smooth, and it has four short legs with two claws on each foot. It has a triangular head with narrow, red eyes, two fangs protruding from its upper jaw, and small, triangular openings on the upper sides. A spiked ridge runs along its back, and it has a single short horn on the tip of its snout.

Rhyhorn's bones are a thousand times harder than human bones.

Rhyhorn's brain is very small, giving it a one-track mind.

Gender DifferencesEdit

Female Rhyhorn have shorter horns than males.


Rhyhorn lives in rough terrain.


Rhyhorn's short legs make it inept at turning.

Sometimes, Rhyhorn may feel pain the day after a collision.
