All of Camerupt's Abilities change after evolving from Numel. In Generation III, the Ability changed from Oblivious to Magma Armor, which prevents Camerupt from becoming Frozen as the result of an Ice-Type Attack. A second Ability was added in Generation IV as well, the Solid Rock Ability. This Ability cuts the amount of damage done by Super-Effective moves by one-quarter.
Camerupt's Dream World Ability also changes after evolution, from Own Tempo to the Anger Point Ability, an Ability that increases its Attack Statistic to the maximum should it get struck with an attack that results in a Critical Hit.
Numel can evolve into Camerupt starting at Level 33.
Camerupt is in the Field Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Camerupt One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.
Camerupt takes on the appearance similar to that of a Bactrian Camel, albeit with shorter legs and a shorter neck.
The humps of a Female Camerupt are slightly larger than the humps of a Male Camerupt.
Camerupt can be obtained in Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness by evolving Numel after it has been Purified.
Camerupt doesn't appear often, but when it does it will appear at Phobos Drill and Mr. Who's Den in Pokémon Trozei!.
Camerupt can only be obtained by evolving Numel in the first round of Mystery Dungeon games. Camerupt appears on the first 19 floors of Giant Volcano, Dark Crater B3-B15 & DPB1-B6, and the first 17 floors of Shimmer Hill in Explorers of Time, Explorers of Darkness & Explorers of Sky. Camerupt appears in all three versions Mystery Dungeon 3, appearing on floors 21-29 of each game's respective Secret area. Additionally, Camerupt appears at Legendary Volcanic Island 1F-15F & 17F-25F in Blazing Adventure Squad; floors 1-16 and 18-25 of Legendary Wetland in Stormy Adventure Squad; and floors 1-18 and 20-25 of Legendary Mountains in Light Adventure Squad.
Camerupt appears at Jungle Ruins in Pokémon Ranger, but the Field Assist Water x3 is required to reach it. Camerupt returns for a second showing in Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia at Peril Cliff. In Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs, Camerupt appears at the second cliffside level of Faldera Volcano in the Present; and three missions in the past: the Fire Temple Missions Which Switch Is for Mime Jr.? & Shaken by Aggron's Footsteps!, and the Ice Temple Mission Save the Frightened Vulpix. In each mission, defeat a Numel or Camerupt and obtain its Slate for a chance at adding this Pokémon to your team, but you have to beat the Boss or else you'll lose that slate!
Camerupt can be found at Sunny Seashore Magma 4-3 in Pokémon Rumble Blast.
Trading Card Game
Camerupt appears in a total of 13 sets and EX Trainer Kit Latias. It appears as an Uncommon Card in the EX Dragon, EX Emerald, EX Holon Phantoms, Legends Awakened and Boundaries Crossed sets. Camerupt appears as a Rare Card in the EX Ruby and Sapphire, EX Team Magma vs Team Aqua, EX Deoxys, EX Emerald (EX Card), EX Crystal Guardians and Supreme Victors (2; 1 Team Galactic Card) sets.
Vicky Winstrate's Camerupt got enraged while it was in a battle against Ash's Pikachu because Pikachu hit Camerupt in the face with an Iron Tail Attack in the episode Candid Camerupt, provoking its Eruption attack. Factory Brain Noland also featured a Camerupt in the episode Numero Uno Articuno, and Wild Camerupt appeared in the episode Historical Mystery Tour.
Camerupt's Manga info is unknown at this time.
Camerupt finds itself in the PU tier of competitive battling. Thanks to a unique defensive typing, Camerupt is among the tier's best Electric-type switch-ins. It has access to Stealth Rock, which allows for it to provide solid utility for the team. Its offensive prowess is still decent even without investment, which means that it is not easy set-up fodder. However, Camerupt's bulk is a bit underwhelming even with investment, is extremely slow, and it is weak to the common Water and Ground-type attacks, which makes it relatively easy to pressure. It also faces competition from Stunfisk and Gabite as a Ground-type, as both can boast better bulk than Camerupt, although they lack Camerupt's neutrality to Ice that allows for it to handle Rotom-F.
Camerupt is also usable in the Neverused (NU) tier of competitive battling. With a great defensive typing that allows for it to counter Rotom, a very common threat in the metagame, and the ability to absorb Will-O-Wisp thanks to its Fire-typing, Camerupt can carve out a decent niche in NU. It can provide Stealth Rock support for a team, making it a nice support option for balanced teams. Outside of its standard specially defensive set, Camerupt can run a Choice Specs set that serves as a powerful wallbreaker with STAB Fire Blast and Earth Power. However, a low base Speed means that it is susceptible to being forced out or revenge killed. Camerupt is vulnerable to being set-up against Water-types like Samurott and Ludicolo. It faces competition from Steelix as a defensive Ground-type, as Steelix boasts more resistances and better overall bulk.
