Larvitar (Japanese: ヨーギラス Yogiras) is a dual-type Rock/Ground Pokémon introduced in Generation II.

It evolves into Pupitar starting at level 30, which evolves into Tyranitar starting at level 55.

Biology

Larvitar is a small, green reptilian Pokémon with rocky skin. It has a blunt spike on top of its head, a short, rounded snout, and triangular, black markings below and on the upper corners of its red eyes. Red scales cover its diamond-shaped belly, and there are several small holes in its body. Its short arms lack fingers, while its feet have a single toenail each. It has a tail with a conical center surrounded by a ring of plate-like scales, causing it to resemble a tunnel-boring machine. Larvitar is born deep underground, far from its parent. It grows by consuming soil and will enter its pupal stage upon eating an entire mountain's worth of earth. Larvitar usually lives in mountains, hills, and caves.

Major appearances

Ash's Larvitar

Larvitar made its main series debut in Hatch Me If You Can. In the episode, Ash had a Larvitar that he hatched from an Egg given to him by Professor Elm, intended to be delivered to its mother living on Mt. Silver. Despite not being able to learn Harden in the games, it constantly used it when approached by anyone other than Ash or Pikachu prior to Mother of All Battles.

Other

Larvitar debuted in Pikachu's PikaBoo. Pikachu and its friends invited it and its own friends to a game of hide-and-seek, though Larvitar refused. Later, it felt left out and viciously kicked a rock at a lawnmower, which went ridiculously haywire, though the situation was eventually resolved.

In Pinch Healing, a Larvitar was being babysat by a Poké-Sitter named Matt. Ash and his friends decided to help him with his job. The Larvitar was particularly shy and would use Sandstorm when confronted. By the end of the episode, however, it warmed up to the group, particularly May.

In The Mystery of the Missing Cubchoo!, a Larvitar befriended Chris's Cubchoo and joined his team at the end of the episode.

Trivia

Origin

Larvitar appears to share similarities with dinosaurs. Its penchant for eating mountains, fences, or probably anything else may also come from the legend of the Tarasque.

Name origin

Larvitar appears to be derived from larva.

Yogiras may be a combination of 幼児 yōji (baby or child) or 幼生 yōsei (larva) and 嫌い kirai (hate). Giras may derive from Gojira, the Japanese name for the character Godzilla, or Angiras, the Japanese name for the character Anguirus. Both are dinosaur-like tokusatsu movie monsters that share some characteristics with Tyranitar, its evolution.
