Hippowdon (Japanese: カバルドン Kabaldon) is a Ground-type Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

It evolves from Hippopotas starting at level 34.

Biology

 
A female Hippowdon in New Pokémon Snap

Hippowdon is a large, hippo-like Pokémon with skin color based on its gender. It is light brown if male, and bluish-gray if female. It has a dark gray back and muzzle with several holes in them. Sand often spills out of the ports on its back and its nostrils. This sand is stored internally and is used to compose twisters when attacking. It has a large, rounded snout, a mouth filled with peg-like teeth, and red eyes. Hippowdon has black feet with four blunt claws each.

It is short-tempered and may hold its mouth agape as a display of strength. Hippowdon's massive jaws are capable of crushing cars. It has a symbiotic relationship with Dwebble, which clears any stones stuck in its ports. Drapion are known to stay away from Hippowdon.

Phantom Thief Pokémon 7

A Hippowdon appeared in P7-14, under the ownership of a man.

Pocket Monsters Diamond & Pearl

Multiple Hippowdon appeared in PDP16.

Pokémon Adventures

wild male Hippowdon first appeared in Bombastic Bibarel & Heroic Hippopotas, where Dr. Footstep set up a sticky carpet to collect his footprint, "finally" succeeding in extracting one from a Hippowdon. This, however, earned the ire of the Pokémon, which proceeded to send him and the three Sinnoh Trainers flying with his Sand Tomb. As a result, Diamond and Platinum landed in the outskirts of Lake Verity, away from Pearl and Footstep, and promptly had to face two Super Nerds hired by Team Galactic to drive out intruders.

Bertha has a female Hippowdon that debuted in Tackling Togekiss. It was used as transportation for Bertha, as well as to carry some books for her Trainer.

Trivia

  • In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness, both Hippowdon and Hippopotas have the same recruit rate, something rarely found with Pokémon of the same evolutionary line.
  • Despite having obvious gender differences, both Hippowdon and its pre-evolution have only one menu sprite, both of which depict the male variation.

Origin

Hippowdon is based on a hippopotamus. Because of the spouts upon its back that constantly spit sands, Hippowdon and its pre-evolved form may be based upon the legendary Bahamut as, in some accounts of the myths behind it, it is said to support a bed of sand and have the head of a hippo.

Name origin

Hippowdon is a combination of hippopotamuspowerpowder (as in sand), or pow (onomatopoeia for a bodily hit), and don (Spanish for lord; Ancient Greek for tooth).

Kabaldon is a combination of 河馬 kaba (hippopotamus) and don.
