Tyranitar (バンギラス) is the 251st Pokémon in the Johto Pokédex. It is a Rock/Dark-Type, and is known as the Armor Pokémon.

Tyranitar uses the Sand Stream Ability, which summons a Sandstorm when it enters battle, which won't dissipate until a different weather condition is introduced. A second Ability is available to Tyranitar from the Dream World, the Unnerve Ability, an Ability that prevents opposing Pokémon from consuming their held Berry whilst in battle.

Larvitar can evolve into Pupitar at Level 30, and can evolve a second time into Level 55 into Tyranitar.

Tyranitar is in the Monster Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 10,240 Steps to hatch. It takes Tyranitar 1,250,000 Experience Points to reach Level 100.

[edit] Anime/Manga Information

[edit] Anime

After evolving from Pupitar in A Poached Ego!, Rico would use his Tyranitar to try and repel an attack from Ash and company, only to be defeated and apprehended by Officer Jenny.

[edit] Movies

A Tyranitar was turned evil by a trainer named Vicious (aka "The Iron Masked Marauder") in Celebi: Voice of the Forest when said Tyranitar was captured by a Dark Ball, an illegally modified Poké Ball that turns a Pokémon into an agent of evil once captured.

Rebecca uses a Tyranitar in Pokémon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea, and another Trainer uses a Tyranitar in Lucario and the Mystery of Mew. Wild Tyranitar make an appearance in Zoroark: Master of Illusions.

[edit] Manga

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Tyranitar finds itself in the Over-Utilized and Uber Tiers of Competitive Battling. Don't be daunted by the number of Fighting-Type Pokémon in the OU Tier, as Tyranitar has a very high attack that can hurt its checks/counters should they try to switch in. Not only does it have great movepool depth, with Sand Stream it is able to summon a Sandstorm upon entering battle, which works to improve its already impressive bulk and support teams that utilize Sandstorms to their advantage.

Regardless, if there's one thing that hurts Tyranitar more than anything: low Speed. While Trick Room support could help to alleviate this, it doesn't deal with the other problem: a double-weakness to Fighting-Type moves. Intimidate and Burn will also reduce its impressive Attack. Even so, going against a Pokémon as versatile as Tyranitar won't be easy.
