Bastiodon (Japanese: トリデプス Torideps) is a dual-type Rock/Steel Fossil Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

It evolves from Shieldon starting at level 30, after it is revived from an Armor Fossil.

Biology

Bastiodon appears to be a cross between a Zuniceratops and a bulldozer. Its dark gray, square head resembles a castle wall, complete with four cream yellow, window-like spots with a black outline, three dark gray spikes on the top, and two larger gray spikes in the upper corners. Bastiodon's triangular nose extends from the middle of its shield-like head down over its lips and appears to be pierced by a gray, horizontal spike. Four spikes jut downward and four large, blunt tusks protrude upward from its dark gray lower jaw. Bastiodon's cream yellow eyes are partially obscured by the nasal spike and spaced-out tusks. Its thick, cream yellow body is further protected by a gray ridge and dark gray plates on its back, jagged growths on its legs, and a plated tail.

Despite its rough, intimidating appearance, Bastiodon is actually a docile, caring Pokémon that feeds on grass and Berries. Its rock-hard, shield-like face is capable of repelling any attack. When multiple Bastiodon line up, their faces form a wall that nothing can break through; this was how they protected their young. In stark contrast to its impenetrable frontal defense, it is vulnerable from behind. It seems to have lived in the same habitats as Rampardos, as evidenced by their fossils often being found together.

In the anime

Major appearances

Bastiodon made its debut appearance in the anime in Ancient Family Matters! under the ownership of Byron. It also appeared in Dealing With Defensive Types! where it was used in the Gym battle against Ash. Bastiodon battled against Chimchar and managed to defeat Chimchar but lost to Gliscor.

Bastiodon also appeared alongside Byron during the credits of Zoroark: Master of Illusions.


Pokédex entries

Episode Pokémon Source Entry
DP107 Bastiodon Dawn's Pokédex Bastiodon, the Shield Pokémon and the evolved form of Shieldon. Its massively powerful shield-like face can deflect even the strongest of attacks.
This concludes the entries from the Diamond & Pearl series.

In the manga

Bastiodon in Pokémon Adventures

In the Phantom Thief Pokémon 7 manga

Bastiodon made a minor appearance in Phantom Thief Pokémon 7 under the ownership of Mako. The reporter used the large Shield Pokémon to block the titular thief's progress, but didn't actually battle him.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Main article: Don

Diamond's Shieldon, nicknamed "Don," evolved into a Bastiodon fighting several opponents at the Galactic Veilstone Building in High-tailing It from Haunter. Already a sturdy Pokémon prior to evolving, this solidified its strong defenses even more.

In the Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Adventure!

Like in the games, Bastiodon appears alongside Byron. He used it during his training sessions with Hareta.
