==Biology==
Pupitar is encased inside a thick grayish-blue shell, madesporting ofa grayish-bluehardness that is comparable to rockbedrock. Its red eyes can be seen through two holes in the shell, and two more holes directly above resemble eyebrows. The upper portion of its body is covered by a mask-like plate with four large spikes on either side. Three additional spikes protrude from its forehead. While its arms and legs are developing inside the shell, Pupitar is capable ofuses ventingcompressed gas to propel itself around, and can generate enough force to knock down mountains.

==Trivia==
* Pupitar is only Pokémon that undergoes metamorphosis-like evolution whose {{stat|Defense}} [[base stats|base stat]] is not higher than its {{stat|Attack}}. Instead, its Attack base stat is its highest stat.
 
===Origin===
Pupitar is based on a pupa, as it is between its evolutionary line's larval stage ({{p|Larvitar}}) and adulthood ({{p|Tyranitar}}).
