Biological characteristics

Armaldo was a Pokémon that lived in prehistoric times and became extinct soon afterwards, but it has been reincarnated through fossil-resurrection technology. In its heavily textured, scaled appearance it is similar to a bipedal version of the ancient sea dwelling Anomalocarid, which this Pokémon or at least its pre-evolution Anorith, was most likely based on.

Anorith , Anopth in original Japanese language versions) are one of the 493 fictional species of Pokémon creatures from the multi-billion-dollar[1] Pokémon media franchise—a collection of video games, anime, manga, books, trading cards, and other media created by Satoshi Tajiri. ...


Armaldo's armor is very tough, making many attacks against it seem to bounce off. The frontal claws are freely extendable and contractible, and the Pokémon can wield enough propulsional force in its claws to punch through a slab of steel. The fact that Armaldo walks on its hind legs suggests that it was able to live on land as well as water, as it does now. In fact, Armaldo prefers land as its residence and the ocean as its hunting ground. The beetle-like back-wings are used for swimming underwater, and its claws are used to skewer its prey before feeding.


In the video games

Armaldo is only obtained from evolution from Anorith at level 40, and Anorith is obtained only from processing the Claw fossil found in the Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Diamond and Pearl versions.


Armaldo has a very high Attack and Defense, average Special Attack and Special Defense, and low Speed. Attacks used against Armaldo can't be critical due to its innate ability. Armaldo is among the strongest non-Legendary Pokemon (such Pokémon include Slaking and Snorlax with their massive Attack and HP, respectively). Armaldo is preferred by the Pokémon Colosseum boss Miror B. after his Shadow Pokemon is snagged. It can learn several Special techniques like Water Pulse, but its low Special Attack lowers the usefulness of these moves. Armaldo excels as a physical sweeper, using powerful moves to knock out its opponents. While its speed is not the best, its defenses allow it to withstand many attacks, even a lot of super-effective hits. Using the move agility to give Armaldo a boost in speed would make it very powerful and difficult to defeat. Armaldo's types protect it from many weaknesses, Bug covering the Grass, Ground and Fighting weaknesses of Rock and Rock covering the Flying and Fire weaknesses of Bug. Steel, Water and Rock attacks are still super effective against it. In the world of Pokémon, a Legendary Pokémon is a Pokémon that is rarely if not uniquely found. ...

In Pokemon Diamond and Pearl, Armaldo has gained a few new powerful moves. It receives the Bug-type attack X-Scissor as its last level-up attack, finally giving it a much-needed powerful Bug move. Ancient Power is no longer a viable move, being Special in nature now, but Rock Slide and Stone Edge replace it as the Rock moves of choice. Armaldo can also learn Rock Polish from a TM, giving a speed-boosting technique. Through breeding it can learn the powerful Cross Poison attack, which may poison a foe and has a high critical hit ratio. These additions make Armaldo an even more dangerous beast. Pokémon Diamond and Pearl are new Pokémon games to be released for the Nintendo DS. Not much is known about them. ...

Armaldo (アーマルド Āmarudo in Japanese, Armaldo in French, Armaldo in German) is a fictional character in the Pokémon franchise.
Armaldo, as seen nowadays, resembles a large bipedal combination of Stegosaurus, Anklyosaurus, and Allosaurus with the hard back-wing carapace of a beetle, feather-like outgrowths from behind its upper body, eyes growing independently of the head, and claws protruding from its chest as opposed to the sides.
The fact that Armaldo walks on its hind legs suggests that it was able to live on land as well as water, as it does now, and in fact Armaldo prefers land as its residence and the ocean as its hunting ground.
