Rhyhorn (Japanese: サイホーン Saihoun) is a Ground/Rock-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Rhyhorn is a rhino-like Pokémon that is rock hard. It has spikes on top of it to protect itself from its foes. It walks on four legs and has a horn that can be used as a drill. And it has two toes on each foot and two sharp teeth sticking out of its mouth.

Special abilities[edit | edit source]

Rhyhorn can have the ability Rock Head or the ability Lightningrod. Rock Head prevents Rhyhorn from sustaining recoil damage. Lightningrod directs all Electric-type attacks to Rhyhorn. Its body is clad in a thick hide, and its tackles topple buildings. Unfortunately, it is not very clever, and can only run in straight lines. It is very difficult to catch in Safari Zone due to missing with Safari Balls.

Evolution[edit | edit source]

Rhyhorn evolves into Rhydon at level 42.

Pokédex entries[edit | edit source]

Red Blue
Its massive bones are 1000 times harder than human bones. It can easily knock a trailer flying.
Yellow
A Pokémon with a one-track mind. Once it charges, it won't stop running until it falls asleep.
Gold
It is inept at turning because of its four short legs. It can only charge and run in one direction.
Silver
It doesn't care if there is anything in its way. It just charges and destroys all obstacles.
Crystal
It can remember only one thing at a time. Once it starts rushing, it forgets why it started.
Ruby
Rhyhorn runs in a straight line, smashing everything in its path. It is not bothered even if it rushes headlong into a block of steel. This Pokémon may feel some pain from the collision the next day, however.
Sapphire
Rhyhorn's brain is very small. It is so dense, while on a run it forgets why it started running in the first place. It apparently remembers sometimes if it demolishes something.
Emerald
Once it starts running, it doesn't stop. Its tiny brain makes it so stupid that it can't remember why it started running in the first place.
FireRed
Strong, but not too bright, this Pokémon can shatter even a skyscraper with its charging tackles.
LeafGreen
Its massive bones are 1000 times harder than human bones. It can easily knock a trailer flying.
Diamond
Its body is clad in a thick hide, and its tackles topple buildings. Unfortunately, it is not smart.
Pearl
Its body is clad in a thick hide, and its tackles topple buildings. Unfortunately, it is not smart.
