Pupitar (Japaneseサナギラス Sanagiras) is a dual-type Rock/Ground Pokémon introduced in Generation II.

It evolves from Larvitar starting at level 30 and evolves into Tyranitar starting at level 55.

Biology

Pupitar is encased inside a thick shell made of grayish-blue rock. 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 of venting gas to propel itself around, and can generate enough force to knock down mountains. Pupitar lives and moves freely around harsh mountain ranges.

Trivia

  • Pupitar is only Pokémon that undergoes metamorphosis-like evolution whose Defense base stat is not higher than its 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 (Larvitar) and adulthood (Tyranitar).

Name origin

Pupitar is derived from pupa, the stage in some insects between the larval stage and adulthood.

Sanagiras may be a combination of 蛹 sanagi (pupa) and 嫌い kirai (hate). Giras may derive from Gojira, the Japanese name for the character Godzilla, or Angiras, the Japanese name for the character Anguirus. Both are dinosaur-like tokusatsu movie monsters (kaiju) that share some characteristics with Tyranitar, its evolution.
