Rhydon is a Ground, Rock-type Pokémon from the Kanto region. It evolves from Rhyhorn after being fed 25 candies and evolves into Rhyperior when fed 100 candies and given a Sinnoh Stone.

Pokédex description

Drill Pokémon
Rhydon's horn can crush even uncut diamonds. One sweeping blow of its tail can topple a building. This Pokémon's hide is extremely tough. Even direct cannon hits don't leave a scratch.
