Donphan (Japaneseドンファン Donfan) is a Ground-type Pokémon introduced in Generation II.

It evolves from Phanpy starting at level 25.

Biology

Donphan is a gray, elephant-like Pokémon with a thick, black band of hide running down the length of its back and extending to the tip of its long trunk. When this Pokémon curls up, the band resembles a car tire. This tough hide prevents regular attacks from inflicting even a scratch. A pair of white tusks, which are smaller on the female, extend from the corners of its mouth. It has thin, elongated ears held out almost perpendicular to its body. Its four short legs are each encircled with a broken, black band and have three toes.

Donphan has the ability to curl up into a ball and violently roll around like a wheel. These rolling tackles are strong enough to knock down a house. Once it starts its rampage, it will be almost unstoppable. The anime shows that this ability is further used as a form of courtship. The male Donphan have rolling competitions to demonstrate their toughness to the females. It has been demonstrated that Donphan has a keen sense of smell, capable of sniffing out a gem known as amberite. Donphan travels in herds with a ranking system. The larger its tusks, the higher its rank in the herd. It lives in rough, mountainous terrain.

Trivia

  • Donphan shares its category with Tyranitar. They are both known as the Armor Pokémon.
  • Donphan and Ursaring, along with their pre-evolved forms, are the only Pokémon to swap version-exclusive status between localizations. While Phanpy and Donphan are found only in the Japanese and Korean Gold, they are not found in Gold in other languages, being found in the Silver Version of those languages instead, with Teddiursa and Ursaring getting the opposite treatment. This is corrected in the remakes HeartGold and SoulSilver, where they follow the Japanese and Korean Gold and Silver.

Origin

Donphan seems to be based on an adult elephant, possibly the pygmy elephant or the extinct dwarf elephant due to its relatively small size. The ridges on its dark gray backside are similar to tire treads, causing it to resemble a spinning car tire when using its Rollout attack. Its armored body may be a reference to war elephants that were trained by humans for combat.

Name origin

Donphan and Donfan may be a combination of don (Spanish for lord or master) or dónti (Greek for tooth) and elephant.
