Larvitar are small sage green reptilian Pokémon with rocky skin. They have an erect spine on top of their heads, angular black streak markings below and on the upper corners of their red eyes, and several holes or ports on the sides of their bodies. They also have a scaled red rhombus-shaped belly of sorts. Larvitar have fingerless arms and legs with a single nailed toe and a tail somewhat resembling a pine cone or tunnel-boring machine in appearance.
Their penchant for eating copious amounts of soil could be considered a natural ability. Additionally, Larvitar are capable of loosing a painfully piercing Screech if needed.
Larvitar are usually quiet. Due to its larval stage, their main interest focuses on eating. Whenever a Larvitar is spotted, it's likely to be seen feeding on soil.
Larvitar usually live in mountains, hills, and sometimes, in caves. The mountains they live in are usually their meals: a single Larvitar can eat a mountain in a few weeks.
