Cranidos is only found in Pokémon Diamond and must be revived from a Skull Fossil found in The Underground.


The Mold Breaker ability makes Cranidos' attacks able to hit when the target's ability would prevent this, and has the special ability to shift rocks and use this as a defense mechanism.

Cranidos evolves into Rampardos at level 30.
