Tauros (ケンタロス) is the 128th Pokémon in the Pokédex. He is a Normal type, and is known as the Wild Bull Pokémon.

Tauros can use one of two Abilities: Intimidate, which lowers the opponent's Attack stat by one stage when the user is first brought into battle; or Anger Point, which will max out Tauros' Attack (+6 Stages) when hit by a critical hit. Tauros's Hidden Ability is Sheer Force, an Ability that boosts moves with secondary effects by 33%, but removing those effects in the process.

Tauros doesn't evolve and doesn't have a pre-evolved form.

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