Cranidos (Japanese: ズガイドス Zugaidosu) is a Rock-type Pokémon and a Fossil Pokémon, able to be revived from the Skull Fossil.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Cranidos is a short, bipedal, dinosaur-like Pokémon. It is very similar to the real life Pachycephalosaurus, having long hindlimbs and short forelimbs, and also having an extremely thick skull roof. The front of Cranidos' body is largely gray, while it's back and the top of its head are blue. From the sides to the back of its head are four large spikes. Cranidos' most notable feature though, is the large blue dome that is its head that it can use to smash down rocks or trees.

Special Abilities[edit | edit source]

Cranidos' dome-like head gives it great power.

Cranidos is one of three Pokémon to have the ability Mold Breaker. This ability allows Cranidos's moves to strike through any opposing abilities. Cranidos also have incredible leg strength, allowing it to move at great speeds so as to hit its opponent. Cranidos's dome-like head is noted as being as hard as iron, making it capable of even breaking through rock.

In Anime[edit | edit source]

Roark's Cranidos battles Ash's Pikachu

Cranidos has had a large role as Gym Leader Roark's key Pokémon. He used it in a battle against Paul in Shapes of Things to Come, and against Ash in A Gruff Act to Follow.

During a battle with Team Rocket, in the episode Wild in the Streets, Roark's Cranidos evolved into a Rampardos.

Evolution[edit | edit source]

Cranidos evolves into Rampardos, once it reaches level 30.

Origins[edit | edit source]

A Pachycephalosaurus.

Cranidos's appearance is very similar to the Pachycephalosaurus dinosaur, and is the basis of this Pokémon's looks and abilities.

Cranidos's name comes from the word cranium referring to its thick skull, while similarly its Japanese name Zugaidos comes from the word zugaikotsu, also meaning cranium.
