Rhyhorn and Rhydon were introduced in the original Pok%26eacute;mon Red and Blue, and finally get a third stage three generations later. You'll have to defeat the Elite 4 and the Pok%26eacute;mon Champion to find the Protector, a defensive item that will evolve Rhydon into Rhyperior when traded to another Pok%26eacute;mon trainer. Rhyperior naturally has impressive stats, most notably its defense. In addition to these numerical upgrades, it learns a number of powerful moves, including the new Rock Wrecker move and Mega Horn, the most powerful Bug-type move, perfect for dispatching those annoying Psychics.
