Description: A large, green, dinosaur-shaped Pokémon, Tyranitar is fierce and intimidating. It has spikes going down the back of its head, neck, and shoulders, as well as around the tip of its tail. Like its first stage, Larvitar, Tyranitar has multiple dark holes in it's hide: four on its legs and four on its chest. Tyranitar also has grey-purple diamond markings on its stomach and back. Its thick, rock-like hide protects it from injury in the battles it is constantly seeking out. Insolent and incredibly strong, Tyranitar have been known to alter entire landscapes with their earthquakes. This is only made worse within the Galar Region where Tyranitar's rivalry with Duraludon leads to many battles in the mountains.

Capable of Mega Evolution, Mega Tyranitar is even more destructive than Tyranitar. It has more spikes and many of its existing spikes are much longer. Its stomach and eyes have turned red with energy that emanates from within its armored hide. Its desire to destroy can lead to a blind rage in which Mega Tyranitar can often not longer hear its Trainer's orders. What a Trainer loses in control, however, is made up for by sheer power.

Core Games

Tyranitar in the core games

  • Sword Pokédex: Its body can't be harmed by any sort of attack, so it is very eager to make challenges against enemies.
  • Shield Pokédex: The quakes caused when it walks make even great mountains crumble and change the surrounding terrain.

Mega Tyranitar

  • Ultra Sun Pokédex: Due to the colossal power poured into it, this Pokémon's back split right open. Its destructive instincts are the only thing keeping it moving.
  • Ultra Moon Pokédex: The effects of Mega Evolution make it more ferocious than ever. It's unclear whether it can even hear its Trainer's orders.
