Probopass (ダイノーズ) is the 156th Pokémon in the Sinnoh Pokédex. It is a Rock/Steel Type, and it is known as the Compass Pokémon.

Probopass can have one of two abilities: Sturdy, an Ability that makes it immune to One-Hit KO Moves, and starting in Generation V, keeps the Pokémon from being KO'd when its HP is full; or Magnet Pull, an Ability that stops Steel Type Pokémon from running or being switched out while the user of this Ability is in battle. Due to switching being prevented, the opponent cannot substitute Pokémon on the same turn in which this Pokémon switches out of battle. Magnet Pull doesn't prevent switching by way of Baton Pass. A third Ability is available to Probopass from the Dream World, the Sand Force Ability. This Ability increases the attack power of Ground, Rock, and Steel Type Attacks by 33% during a Sandstorm.

Nosepass can evolve into Probopass if it Levels Up at Mt. Coronet in Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum; the same evolution can also be triggered by Leveling Up at Chargestone Cave in Black, White, Black 2 and White 2.

Probopass is in the Mineral Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Probopass One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.

[edit] Biology

[edit] Physiology

[edit] Gender Differences

Probopass doesn't have any differences to differentiate between male and female.

[edit] Game Information

[edit] Original Games

Probopass can only be obtained by evolving a Nosepass in Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, Black, White, Black 2 and White 2. Nosepass cannot be evolved in Heart Gold and Soul Silver because there isn't an area that has an Electric Rock.

[edit] Spin-off Games

Probopass appears at Sky Stairway 1F-49F and Sealed Ruins at B1-B8 & IB1-B6 in Explorers of Time, Explorers of Darkness and Explorers of Sky, but Probopass Cannot be Recruited at Sealed Ruins. Probopass is exclusive to Stormy Adventure Squad in Mystery Dungeon 3, appearing at Weird Rockland 13F-23F, and the following floors of Legendary Wetland: 28, 30-31, 34-35, 37, 31, and 44-49.

Probopass appears at the Chroma Ruins in Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia, but the Field Assist Psycho Power Lv 3 is required to reach it. Probopass makes a second appearance in Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs at Mitonga Island, past the exit of Daybreak Ruins in the Present, and in the mission Shaken by Aggron's Footsteps! by completing the mission with an S Rank, the rarer of the two Pokémon that can be obtained as a Slate in this level as it is the boss of this level.

Probopass can be found at Everspring Valley Cave 4-2 in Pokémon Rumble Blast.

[edit] Trading Card Game

Probopass appears in four sets, a Diamond and Pearl Promo, and Pokémon Organized Play Series 8 as a Rare Card. Probopass is listed as an Uncommon Card in the Platinum Set, and is listed as a Rare Card in the Legends Awakened, Arceus and Dragons Exalted Sets.

[edit] Anime/Manga Information

[edit] Anime

A trainer's Nosepass evolved into a Probopass during the episode Nosing 'Round The Mountain!, only to be taken in one of Team Rocket's many tried-and failed-schemes. Probopass has also made a few cameos in a few other episodes.

[edit] Movies

Wild Probopass appear in the film Arceus and the Jewel of Life, its lone appearance in the movies as of writing.

[edit] Manga

Probopass's Manga info is unknown at this time.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Probopass finds itself in the Never-Utilized Tier of Competitive Battling. It is mostly used in a support role, setting up Stealth Rock with a second Status Condition move, followed with two attacks. While Probopass doesn't have great Offensive or Speed Statistics, it has a lot of bulk--tied for 10th in Defense with Cofagrigus and tied for 6th in Special Defense with Registeel.

Despite the high Defenses, its low HP and type combination really let it down, especially against an opponent that uses the Mold Breaker Ability, which can bring Probopass down in one hit even if it has the Sturdy Ability.
