Pupitar are somewhat large Pokémon that are encased inside a thick shell made of grayish-blue rock. They have several spikes and holes for eyes and what appears to be eyebrows, but are actually triangular openings. Since its arms and legs are developing inside the shell, Pupitar are capable of venting gas to propel themselves around.
It is one of the few Pokémon not at its last stage of evolution to be able to wield a Hyper Beam. Pupitar is also capable of propelling itself through the air by venting pressurized gas.
Pupitar creates a gas inside its body that it compresses and forcefully ejects to propel itself like a jet or rocket.
Despite being encased in a hard shell, Pupitar live and move freely around harsh mountain ranges. They can be found in Mt Silver.
This Pokémon was unavailable prior to Generation I.
