Copperajah (Japanese: ダイオウドウ Daioudou) is a Steel-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VIII.

It evolves from Cufant starting at level 34.

Copperajah has a Gigantamax form.

Biology

Copperajah is a large, cuboid, elephantine Pokémon with a dark green body and a light teal underbelly. Pokédex entries for its pre-evolution Cufant suggest that this coloration probably results from the tarnishing of copper in its skin over time. Untarnished copper accents cover most of Copperajah's face, and pattern its ears, feet, trunk, and back. It has short, blunt tusks and a long, broad, muscular trunk that ends in three claw-like protrusions. It has three raised, white ridges on the dorsal end of its trunk, and several rocky protrusions on the dome of its skull.

Despite being found in the Galar and Paldea regions, Copperajah and its pre-evolved form Cufant are not native to either of them, having been imported from another region to work with humans. It also works with other Pokémon, such as Gigalith, in construction sites and mines. Copperajah's tarnished skin is resistant to water. It has enough physical strength to pull an airplane, and its trunk is strong enough to crush boulders into powder. It lives in social herds and has a boastful disposition; the more vibrant its skin is, the prouder it will be.

When it Gigantamaxes, Copperajah's trunk enlarges, its body becomes block-like, and it adopts a bipedal posture, standing on its large hind feet. Its rectangular tusks angle upward and the raised bumps on its trunk extend into overlapping, serrated ridges. Clouds of Dynamax energy float above its head. While Gigantamaxed, Copperajah's trunk is powerful enough to level mountains and obliterate large structures.

Gigantamax Copperajah is the only known Pokémon capable of using the G-Max Move G-Max Steelsurge.

Trivia

  • When Copperajah has the Heavy Metal Ability, its weight becomes 2,866.0 lbs (1,300.0 kg), exceeding the 2,204.4 lbs (999.9 kg) "limit" for a Pokémon's weight.
  • Although Copperajah is unobtainable in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, it is briefly mentioned in the Pokédex entry for Raichu.
  • Copperajah's English category, "Copperderm", may be a combination of copper and -derm (suffix derived from an Ancient Greek word meaning "skin") or Pachyderm. The name can be taken to mean "copper skin".

Origin

Given Asia's history with Britain and the use of captive elephants as working animals, Copperajah may be based on an Indian elephant with the digging bucket of a backhoe for a trunk. It may also be inspired by elephant statues often made of copper or bronze, which are common in Indian art and Thai art.

Name origin

Copperajah may be a combination of copper and Maharajah (Indian title of great king). It may also incorporate gajah (Indonesian and Malay for elephant), which in turn is derived from गज gaja (Sanskrit for elephant).

Daioudou may be a combination of 大王 daiō (great king) and 王道 ōdō (kingship), 黄銅 ōdō (brass), or 銅 (copper).
