Rhyhorn (サイホーン) is the 111th Pokémon in the Pokédex. It is a Ground/Rock Type, and it is known as the Spikes Pokémon.

Rhyhorn can use one of two Abilities: Lightningrod, which draws all Electric Type moves to it, and starting in Generation V, each time this Ability is activated its Special Attack Statistic is increased by one stage; or Rock Head, nullifying the recoil damage-effect of moves such as Double-Edge. Rhyhorn's Hidden Ability is the Reckless Ability. This Ability gives a 20% power increase to moves that cause recoil damage, but the recoil increases with the amount of damage as well.

Rhyhorn gain the opportunity to evolve into a Rhydon starting at Level 42. From Generation IV onward, if a Rhydon is traded while holding a Protector, it will evolve into its final form, Rhyperior.

Rhyhorn is in the Egg Groups Monster and Field, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Rhyhorn 1,250,000 Experience Points to reach Level 100.
