Rhyhorn is a Rock/Ground-type Pokémon typically found in the Kanto region. It is known for its short temper, poor memory, and incredible hardiness.
Rhydon is the evolution of Rhyhorn and is notable for being the first Pokémon designed. Its brain has developed once it evolved, allowing it to walk on its hind legs and fully utilize its brutal strength.
Rhyperior is the final form of Rhyhorn and evolved form of Rhydon. It assumed this form after being exposed to a Protector during the trading process. It can insert rocks into the holes in its palms and fire them like muscles by quickly contracting its muscles.

- Lightning Rod: The Rhyhorn family's body structures make them living lightning rods, attracting all electrical attacks to themselves and dispersing them harmlessly throughout their bodies. Furthermore, they can utilize the energy gained form this process to bolster their attacks.
- Rock Head: The Rhyhorn family's innate toughness allows it to absorb impacts with ease, nullifying the recoil it would receive from moves like Take Down.

- Chip Away: Rhyhorn, Rhydon, or Rhyperior repeatedly attacks a target to chip away at their defenses and ignore defensive stat increases.
