Pupitar (Japanese: サナギラス Sanagiras) is a dual-type Rock/Ground Pokémon.

It evolves from Larvitar starting at level 30 and evolves into Tyranitar starting at level 55.

Biology

Physiology

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.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

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.

Behavior

Pupitar creates a gas inside its body that it compresses and forcefully ejects to propel itself like a jet or rocket.

Habitat

Mountain

Mountain Pokémon

Despite being encased in a hard shell, Pupitar live and move freely around harsh mountain ranges. They can be found in Mt Silver.
