Cranidos (Japanese????? Zugaidos) is a Rock-type Fossil Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

It is resurrected from a Skull Fossil and evolves into Rampardos starting at level 30.

Biology

Cranidos is a gray, dinosaur-like Pokémon resembling the Pachycephalosaurus. It has a hooked beak, red irises, and a hard, blue, dome-shaped head with four spikes on its back. It has stubby arms with three claws; despite the stubbiness, it can attack with them. The back half of its body has a large, spiky pattern of blue and it has a short tail. It has feet with three forward claws and one backward. Its main attacking prowess involves charging head-first into its opponents. When it lived in dense forests and jungles 100 million years ago, it would use headbutts to snap obstructing trees and down its prey.
