Rampardos (Japanese: ラムパルド Rampald) is a Rock-type Fossil Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

It evolves from Cranidos starting at level 30, after it is revived from a Skull Fossil.

Biology

Rampardos is a large, dark-gray, dinosaur-like Pokémon resembling a Pachycephalosaurus. It has a dome head, which obstructs its red eyes. It has blue stripes, one on its tail, and one on each of its knees and wrists. It has various spikes: one on each knee, two on the blue collar on its neck, two short ones on its nose, and four on its head. Two of these head spikes are bigger than the other two.

Its strength lies within its fierce head-butting attacks. A charging Rampardos can knock down virtually anything with one hit. 100 million years ago, it lived in jungles, where it tore down jungle trees while catching prey. It enjoys barging into objects with its head to train its strength and reflexes. This resulted in its skull becoming harder than steel and a foot thick, which prevents it from fainting if it crashes into anything, even another charging Rampardos. In ancient times, people would dig up its well-developed skull fossil and use it as a helmet. However, because its skull became so thick, its brain also became even smaller than that of Cranidos, leading to theories that it went extinct because of its stupidity. Its fossils have been found near those of Bastiodon, suggesting that these two lived in the same habitat.

Moon Records exist of a revived fossil that evolved into Rampardos. It proceeded to escape and then destroy a skyscraper with a headbutt.
Ultra Sun In ancient times, people would dig up fossils of this Pokémon and use its skull, which is harder than steel, to make helmets.

Trivia

  • Rampardos has the highest base Attack stat of all Rock-type Pokémon.
  • Rampardos and its pre-evolved form are the only Fossil Pokémon of a single type.

Origin

Rampardos is based on the family of dinosaurs known as Pachycephalosauridae, although the head ornamentation resembles that of the Stygimoloch or the Dracorex because of its height.

Name origin

Rampardos may be a combination of rampart (a defensive wall), ram (to slam into) or rampage and hard. Dos is derived from Cranidos.

Rampald may be a combination of rampart or ram and hard or bald.
