Tyrantrum (Japanese: ガチゴラス Gachigoras) is a dual-type Rock/Dragon Fossil Pokémon introduced in Generation VI.

It evolves from Tyrunt when leveled up during the day starting at level 39, after it is revived from a Jaw Fossil.

Biology

Tyrantrum is a bipedal, dinosaurian Pokémon that resembles a large theropod. It is predominantly brownish red with scaly patterns on its skin and scattered orange highlights on some scales and ridges. Tyrantrum's head is proportionately large with a blunt, ridged snout and powerful jaws. It has black around its eyes and a light gray lower jaw covered by a beard of white, primitive feathers. Several sharp teeth are visible in the lower jaw, while the upper jaw is lined with orange-tipped, tooth-like projections. Over its eyes are a row of five spikes resembling a crown. Around Tyrantrum's neck is a feathery white ruff that extends over its shoulders similar to a cape. Its underbelly is gray with white borders and there are two orange spikes near the tip of its long tail. Its small forelimbs have only two black-clawed digits each, but it has powerful hind legs with three black claws each. Plated, armor-like ridges cover its knees, back, and the top of its tail.

Before its extinction 100 million years ago, Tyrantrum was known to be vicious but had the presence of a magnificent king. Its powerful jaws, capable of shredding thick metal plates like a car, made it invincible. It is theorized that its original form was completely covered with a feather-like coat. Tyrantrum preys on Amaura.

Tyrantrum reigns like a king over the other land-dwelling prehistoric Pokémon around the volcano. It’s completely unguarded when it sleeps—probably because it’s so strong that it feels no need to be cautious.

Trivia

  • No other Pokémon has the same type combination as Tyrantrum and its pre-evolution.
  • Tyrantrum shares several similarities with Aurorus. Both are Rock-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VI. Both of them evolve from a Pokémon with a base stat total of 362 starting with level 39, although Tyrantrum evolves at night instead of during the day. Both also share a base stat total of 521.
  • Tyrantrum and its pre-evolution were designed by Hitoshi Ariga.[1]

Origin

Tyrantrum is mostly based on the genus Tyrannosaurus, though it also shares characteristics (including the orange facial crest) with the Carnosauria clade. The orange crest is also similar to those seen on Cryolophosaurus. The orange crest and white feathers may also have been inspired by kings (with the crest acting as the crown, the fringe on the lower jaw acting as a beard, and the fringe on the Pokémon's neck acting as a cape). The fringe may also be a reference to Tyrannosaurus supposedly having feathers.

Name origin

Tyrantrum may be a combination of Tyrannosaurus or tyrant and tantrum.

Gachigoras may be a combination of ガチガチ gachigachi (teeth chattering), ガチ gachi (serious or for real), ガチン gachin (banging noise), がっちり gacchiri (stocky), and チゴラス Chigoras (Tyrunt's Japanese name).
