Tauros (Japanese: ケンタロス Kentauros) is a Normal-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon, but it is considered to be a counterpart of Miltank.

In Paldea, Tauros has three different regional forms: Combat Breed, which is pure Fighting-type, Blaze Breed, which is dual-type Fighting/Fire, and Aqua Breed, which is dual-type Fighting/Water.

Biology

 
Poké Ride Tauros

Tauros is a quadrupedal, bovine Pokémon. It is covered in light brown fur with a thick, darker brown mane around the neck. It has a rounded muzzle with a dark brown nose, small, triangular eyes, three gray bumps running vertically down its forehead, and a pair of curved, gray horns growing from atop its head. Each of its three black tails has a tuft of fur on the end, and there is a single gray hoof on each foot. Tauros is a male-only species.

Tauros is a violent, rowdy Pokémon that whips itself into a frenzy using its three tails. It serves as a warning to others that Tauros is about to charge with astonishing speed. Once it starts charging, it is unable to stop or change course until it hits something. Tauros are capable of smashing through large boulders when charging. It lives and travels in herds on plains and grasslands. It will lock horns with others of its kind, and the herd's protector takes pride in its battle-scarred horns.

While still ferocious, Tauros are calmer in Alola than elsewhere, likely due to the region's climate. The practice of riding Tauros is believed to have started in Alola. In Alola, Tauros are used as Ride Pokémon. In contrast, Tauros in Galar are more volatile and don't like to be ridden.

Tauros is the only known Pokémon capable of learning the move Raging Bull.

Forms

In Paldea, Tauros has three separate regional forms: Combat Breed, Blaze Breed, and Aqua Breed.

All three forms of Paldean Tauros are covered in dark gray fur, and have a thick black mane, gray horns, black hooves, and dark gray tails with black tips. Each form also has three gray bumps running vertically on its forehead, increasing in size from top to bottom. The physical differences between the three forms are visible on the shapes of their horns, manes, and tails. The three forms of Paldean Tauros are known as "The Wild Bulls of Paldea".

Combat Breed

The Combat Breed of Paldean Tauros has short, rounded, almost straight horns, and its mane and tails are shaped similarly to Kantonian Tauros. Combat Breed Tauros is known for its thick, powerful muscles and aggressive nature. Thanks to its muscular body, it is skilled at close-quarters combat, able to use its horns to strike at an opponent's weak spots.

Blaze Breed

The Blaze Breed of Paldean Tauros has sharp horns, pointing forward and bent at right angles. Its mane is spiky with streaks of red, and its tails are intertwined. Blaze Breed Tauros earns its name from the hot air it breathes from its nostrils. When channeling its fire energy, the bumps and horns on Blaze Breed Tauros's head will glow red. The horns can reach a temperature of over 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit (1,000 degrees Celsius), causing anyone gored by Blaze Breed Tauros to suffer both wounds and burns.

Aqua Breed

The Aqua Breed of Paldean Tauros has horns that usually point upward but can rotate backward — each horn has two round, bulbous forms and a hole on its tip. Its mane flows downward and is shaped like a beard, with five teardrop-shaped blue accents on it. Its tails are usually straight, but can bend to form a propeller shape, which aids it in swimming. Aqua Breed Tauros is recognized for its high body fat, which allows it to float easily in the water. It swims by unleashing high-pressure jets of water from its horns, as well as using its tails to propel itself. It can use the same water jets to pierce right through any enemy it hits. The bumps and horns on Aqua Breed Tauros's head will glow light blue when it attacks.

Form data

Paldean Tauros has three non-interchangeable forms: Combat Breed, Blaze Breed, and Aqua Breed. Visually, each breed has different horns, manes, and tails. The breeds have different types, with Combat Breed being Fighting-type, Blaze Breed being dual-type Fighting/Fire, and Aqua Breed being dual-type Fighting/Water. They also learn different moves, and the type of Tauros's signature move Raging Bull changes based on the user's form, being Fighting-type for Combat Breed, Fire-type for Blaze Breed, and Water-type for Aqua Breed.

In Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, the Blaze Breed is found exclusively in Pokémon Scarlet, while the Aqua Breed is found exclusively in Pokémon Violet. The Combat Breed is the most common of the three and is found in both versions. Regular Tauros bred in Paldea without an Everstone will always produce Combat Breed Paldean Tauros.

Trivia

  • Tauros can be seen as a counterpart to Miltank. Both are bovine-like Pokémon with the same base stat total. While Tauros is a male-only species, Miltank is a female-only species.
  • According to Pokémon Sun and Moon, Tauros was designed by Shigeki Morimoto.
  • Tauros is the only Pokémon to have more than one regional form within the same region; in the Paldea region, it has three different regional forms.
  • Tauros forms a notable bug in Pokémon Play It!, a game largely based on the Trading Card Game. Once the "Tauros" card appears, either in the player's own deck or that of the digital opponent, the game will shut down or freeze the player's computer.
  • In Pokémon Crystal, a bug causes the capture formula for the Heavy Ball to incorrectly retrieve this Pokémon's weight, giving it a +40 catch rate modifier. This also affects Kadabra and Sunflora.
  • Blaze Breed Paldean Tauros is the only dual-type Fighting/Fire Pokémon to not be an evolutionary relative of a starter Pokémon.
  • There is an entry for Kantonian Tauros in the Paldean Pokédex, even though it is not available in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet unless transferred from Pokémon HOME. The same entry was later made available through the Blueberry Pokédex.
    • The entry for Kantonian Tauros in Violet was edited slightly as of version 1.3.0. The original text is as follows: "They fight each other by locking horns. The herd's protector takes pride in its battle-scarred horns." It is identical to Kantonian Tauros's Pokédex entries in Pokémon Gold, Stadium 2, and Pokémon HeartGold.
  • Having any of the Paldean forms of Tauros registered in the Paldea Pokédex will not register the Kantonian form in the Blueberry Pokédex.

Origin

Tauros appears to be based on a bull or a bison and may also be based on the constellation Taurus. Its tails may be based on a whip, more specifically the cat o' nine tails.

Paldean Tauros's appearance, typing, and the fact that it is found in a region inspired by the Iberian Peninsula suggest inspiration from the Spanish fighting bull. The black color could also be inspired by the Osborne bull, which has become a cultural emblem of Spain. The two variations of Paldean Tauros being Fire and Water types specifically could be a reference to two of the most famous and controversial bullfighting practices in Spain: the Toro embolado, mainly from the Valencian Community, where the bull horns are set on fire; and the Bous a la Mar, from the Valencian region of Dénia, where the bulls run down the Marqués de Campo street and end up swimming in the Mediterranean Sea. The Aqua Breed form may also be loosely based on a water buffalo, and the form of its tails could take inspiration from ship propellers or water wheels; as well as the triskelion, a popular motif used by ancient European cultures, especially the Celts.

Name origin

Tauros may be derived from its Japanese name, Kentauros. It may also be derived from ταῦρος tauros (Greek for bull).

Kentauros may be derived from Κένταυρος Kéntauros (Greek for centaur).
