Anorith (Japanese: アノプス Anopusu) is a Rock/Bug-type Fossil Pokémon introduced in Generation III that is capable of being revived from the Claw Fossil.

Appearance

Anorith is based on an ancient ocean-dwelling creature from the pre-cambrian era called anomalocaris. It uses the fins on itsback to propel itself through the seas. It has one pair of large eyes, and a pair of claws that eventually would become a Claw Fossil found in the Hoenn region. Small eyes also appear to stick out of it's face.

Special abilities

Anorith has the abilities Swift Swim and Battle Armor. Battle Armor prevents Anorith from gaining critical hits while Swift Swim increases Anorith's speed when in rain. They are known to live in the prehistoric times of the Pokémon era and they grab their prey on the sea floor with their sharp claws.

In the anime

Anorith appears in the anime episode AG102: Where's Armaldo? where it, along with other prehistoric Pokémon, were being studied. Many Anorith appear in DP017: Wild in the Streets where they were resurrected by scientists.

Evolution

Anorith evolves into Armaldo at level 40.

Trivia

  • Despite being based on water creatures, Anorith is not a Water-type. Anorith shares this trait with its evolution, Armaldo.
  • Anorith and Armaldo are the only two Pokémon that are Bug-types with genders that are not in the Bug-egg group.
