Tauros (Japanese: ケンタロス Kentauros) is a Normal-type Pokémon.

He is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

Biology

Physiology

Tauros are quadruped, bovine Pokémon. They are covered in light brown fur, with a thick darker brown mane around the neck. Their nose is also dark brown. They have a pair of curved, gray horns atop their head, and three silver studs on their forehead. Each of their three black tails has a tuft of fur on the end, and there is a single gray hoof on each foot.

Gender differences

Tauros is a male-only species. Many fans consider its female counterpart to be Miltank, despite the fact that Miltank was introduced a generation later. It is speculated that Miltank was created solely to be the "female version" of Tauros. Miltank obviously cannot produce Tauros Eggs, due to the fact that a bred Pokémon will almost always be the same species as its mother. However, a Tauros can breed with a Miltank to produce another Miltank.

Special abilities

Tauros are violent, rowdy Pokémon that are able to whip themselves into a frenzy using their three-pronged tail. They are unable to stop themselves once they charge. However, they can only charge in a straight line. Like most Normal types, Tauros can learn many different types of attacks.

Behavior

Tauros are rowdy Pokémon; once they've started a rampage they will not stop until they hit something. They increase their will to fight by whipping themselves with their three tails. They live and travel in herds with the herd's protector probably leading the others. Tauros are also known to lock horns with each other in battle, and they usually take pride in their battle-scarred horns. When there are no opponents to battle, Tauros will charge at trees to satisfy their need for a challenge and calm themselves.

Habitat

Grassland

Grassland Pokémon

Tauros are rarely found in the wild, but can be found near farming communities in Johto. They have also been introduced to the Safari Zone, and can be found near the Johto Safari Zone.

Diet

Like other real-life bovines, Tauros graze on grass.
