This Ability increases the power of its moves that have a secondary effect by 33%, but those secondary effects are lost.

Cranidos gain the opportunity to evolve into Rampardos starting at Level 30.

Cranidos is in the Monster Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 7,680 Steps to hatch. It takes Cranidos 600,000 Experience Points to reach Level 100.
