Armaldo uses the Battle Armor Ability. This Ability nullifies an attack's chances of landing a Critical Hit. A second Ability is available to Armaldo from the Dream World, the Swift Swim Ability. This Ability doubles its Speed Statistic when it is Raining, but its Speed won't double on the same turn in which it starts to rain.
Anorith can evolve into Armaldo once it reaches Level 40.
Armaldo is in the Water 3 Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 7,680 Steps to hatch. It takes Armaldo approximately 600,000 Experience Points to reach Level 100.
Armaldo resembles a bipedal, armored bug-like dinosaur.
Armaldo doesn't have any gender differences to differentiate between male and female.
Armaldo appears at Endless Level 18, Forever Level 67 and Mr. Who's Den in Pokémon Trozei!.
Armaldo is only obtainable by evolving an Anorith in the first two waves of Mystery Dungeon games. Armaldo is exclusive to Stormy Adventure Squad in Mystery Dungeon 3, appearing at Stormy Seas 1F-17F, and the following floors of Legendary Wetland: 29, 32, 34-37, 40-43 and 47-48.
Armaldo appears at Oblivia Ruins in Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs in the Present, and the Ice Temple Mission "Time! Time! Time" by defeating it and obtaining its Slate, but the mission's short time limit makes mission completion a challenge in itself, especially when attempting this mission alone.
Armaldo can be found at Shimmering Lake Cave 2-4 in Pokémon Rumble Blast.
The only way to obtain an Armaldo in Pokémon Conquest is to evolve an Anorith.
Trading Card Game
Armaldo appears in five sets and Pokémon Organized Series 1 as an EX Rare Card. It is listed as a Rare Card in the EX Sandstorm, EX Legend Maker (EX Card), EX Holon Phantoms (Delta Species Card), EX Power Keepers and Legends Awakened sets.
Nando used an Armaldo during the Sinnoh League in the episode League Unleashed! It defeated Ash's Staraptor before falling simultaneously with Quilava, whom evolved from Cyndaquil shortly before the tournament.
Armaldo appears in the film Lucario and the Mystery of Mew, its lone film appearance to date.
Armaldo's Manga info is unknown at this time.
Armaldo finds itself in the Never-Utilized and Rarely-Utilized Tiers of Competitive Battling. While it has good defenses, Armaldo has a very high Attack, which is great for sweeping. Armaldo also has access to Rapid Spin for clearing away entry hazards, and it can use Stealth Rock as well.
The biggest problem that hurts Armaldo is a relatively low Special Defense, a weakness that can be preyed upon by special sweepers. Its low Speed really lets it down unless it has Trick Room support or is using Swift Swim, which makes it a dangerous sweeper. Plus, its sweeping prowess gets hampered if it takes a Burn.
