Original Japanese name: Nidokingu (Nidoking)
Evolution: Evolves from Nidorino
Nidoking's mighty tail packs enormously destructive power. With one swing, it can topple a metal transmission tower or snap a telephone pole as if it were a matchstick. It uses the thick, powerful tail in battle to smash, constrict, then break its prey's bones. If it binds an enemy, it can snap the victim's spine quite easily. If its foe flinches, it will charge with its sturdy body. It has a steel-like hide that is worn like armor and adds to its powerful tackle. The long horn on its head is sharp, highly venomous, and is so hard it can pierce a diamond. Nidoking is recognized by its rock-hard hide and its extended horn, and it uses its thick arms, legs and tail to attack forcefully. Melee combat is its specialty. Once this pokemon goes on a rampage, there is no stopping it.
