Shieldon (Japanese: タテトプス Tatetops) is a dual-type Rock/Steel Fossil Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

It is resurrected from an Armor Fossil and evolves into Bastiodon starting at level 30.

Contents

Biology

Shieldon is a small, yellow, ceratopsian-like reptilian Pokémon. It has white toes and a white bump on its back. Shieldon has a dark-gray elliptical face, with a prominent white brow and a white rim on its black snout. Its facial hide is extremely hard; however, it is vulnerable when attacked from behind.

100 million years ago, Shieldon lived in dense forests. It has a habit of polishing its face against tree trunks. It is speculated that few enemies would have considered challenging its armored face. It eats grass, tree roots, and Berries. Its fossils show no sign of damage to its face.

Byron has a Shieldon that he was unable to befriend even after carrying him outside of his ball for an extended period. As Diamond was able to do so even without knowing him, he decided to give him to the boy prior to his training on Iron Island, which he nicknamed Don. He evolved into a Bastiodon later in the showdown against Team Galactic. He first appeared in A Big Stink Over Stunky.

Trivia

  • Shieldon and Cranidos evolve at level 30, the earliest of any Fossil Pokémon.

Origin

Shieldon is based on a ceratopsian dinosaur and a shield. Its lack of horns makes it particularly similar to Protoceratops.

Name origin

Shieldon is a combination of shield (referring to its shield-like head) and don (from δόντι dónti, Greek for tooth; a suffix in various dinosaur names).

Tatetops is a combination of 盾 tate (shield) and tops (ὤψ ōps, Ancient Greek for face, a suffix commonly used for Ceratopsidae dinosaurs).
