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


Rhyperior is a brownish-gray Pokémon with two horns: one on its nose, and another one above it. It has a club-like tail and its hide is partially covered by orange, rocky plates. It has blade-like protrusions on its elbows and has holes in the palms of its hands which works as a cannon or a gun. It also appears to have two thick, rectangular rocks above its eyes, resembling heavy eyebrows.

Gender DifferencesEdit

Female Rhyperior have shorter horns on their foreheads than males.


Rhyperior can insert rocks and boulders into its arms through the holes in its hands and then fire them like bullets. However, it will occasionally insert and fire Geodude by accident.
