Tyrantrum (the Despot Pokémon) is an exceptionally rare Rock/Dragon-type Pokémon found among forests and jungles across the world, though only in exceptionally limited numbers. Regal in appearance and more than vicious in nature, Tyrantrum are dangerous beasts that can easily tear through the opposition before they even know what hit them. These titans are not easy to control and can more than be a bit intimidating, but don’t let your guard down for a moment; they might think of themselves as noble kings, but if angered, their actions in battle will likely be described as anything but noble!

The members of the Tyrunt family are only alive today thanks to the modem miracle of fossil-restoring technology, but they unfortunately drew the short end of the stick, as their Jaw Fossils are always found in an incomplete state, the trace of something that was once there almost nonexistent in most specimens; it is speculated that these traces may have been the incomplete preservation of feathers, meaning that both Tyrunt and Tyrantrum were possibly coated in feathers all along their body frames, compared to the incomplete creatures that have been resurrected instead. Despite the fact that it is currently impossible to resurrect them in a fully complete state, among all of the Fossil Pokémon that have been resurrected, none quite demonstrate the sheer regal flair and destructive power observed in these beasts. These monsters are believed to be distantly related to the genus Tyrannosaurus (and possibly related to the genus Cryolophosaurus) and share many of the genus’ associated anatomical features, though in all reality they are far stronger than their ‘relatives’ could have ever been. These species were only recently discovered a few years ago as fossils within the Kalos region and have been located and resurrected in other places now, but the Kalos region it still the best place to find them (though the Jaw Fossils they come from are extremely rare even there). Though they are still primarily Rock-types as a result of the fossil restoration process, these beasts are unique among all fossil Pokémon in that they have all of the needed activated genes and attributes to be considered true Dragon-types, a rare find that effectively pushes the origin of the type as we know it all the way back to about 100 million years ago, within the Cretaceous period. This marvelous discovery has spurred further debates in regards to the origins of the Fairy-type as well, as the two types are hypothesized to have possibly originated in the same time frame, but more data is needed on this rare type before this can actually be discussed further. While these beasts may not have much in the way of personality, they are still extremely powerful daytime predators that are well noted for their immensely strong mandible and upper mouth areas, as the bones seem to be reinforced and thicker than normal. This grants these beasts the powerful Strong Jaw Ability, which has the effect of increasing the damage they do with biting attacks by 50%. Moreover, it is believed that these beasts were likely the kings of their time and ecological environment in the Cretaceous, as they don’t seem to care too much about what gets in their way and will gladly destroy anything and anyone that gets in their path. Raising one of these head-strong beasts can be a real challenge, but the sheer power they bring with them to battle nonetheless makes them a foe to be feared.

While Tyrunt are still able to evolve just like any other fossil Pokémon (with the exception of Aerodactyl, though the species is also the only one capable of Mega Evolution), their lifestyle as a daytime predator has resulted in a slight mutation in the resurrection process that limits them to evolution only in the daytime. Despite this minor hurdle, however, getting a Tyrantrum is only the first of many problems trainers will have to deal with when using one of these beasts. From what can only be guessed from their attitude, it is likely that these beasts were truly the most powerful of beasts during their time, so much so in fact that they more or less act like they are still king of the jungle (so to speak) and will not listen to trainers that they do not trust or otherwise respect. This is a serious problem in and outside of battle because the sheer destructive power of these beasts is immense. On the one hand, their jaw strength increases considerably in evolution to the point where they can bite through thick metal sheets like they were paper and crunch cars with almost no effort at all. Moreover, their enormous size and well-developed musculature enables them to deal immense damage with monstrous attacks that are beyond even Tyrunt, including the Rock Slide (gained immediately after evolution), Head Smash and Giga Impact attacks. The fact that they can already learn monstrous attacks like Earthquake and even Horn Drill makes these additions the worst thing a trainer could ever hope to face in battle against a fossil Pokémon. As a result of all this power, though, these beasts are generally quite uncaring and will gladly destroy anything that gets in their path. As such, trainers that are hoping to make best use of these beasts will have to do so as a Tyrunt and from a young age, as these monsters are more of a hazard to their trainer than the opposition if not properly controlled; only extreme cold seems to be capable of calming these beasts, and even then it still might just make them angrier, leaving the species as one that even expert trainers should be wary of using at all times.

Easy to anger and almost impossible to stop when infuriated, Tyrantrum are vicious monsters that can more than make a violent impact in battle when needed. With deceptively high physical defenses for a Dragon-type on their side and a wicked Ability more than guaranteed to rip most opponents to shreds, it comes as no surprise that these monsters are truly considered, alongside Aerodactyl, as one of the most dangerous fossil Pokémon alive today. Make sure that you bring plenty of Fairy-type defenses and offenses to play against these beasts and don’t let up for a second against these royal titans; it may only take a few minutes for the best of trainers to calm their rage, but it only takes seconds for an unlikely bystander to end up as lunch in the process!

Here's what I assume went down at Game Freak when Mr. Sugimori introduced the concept of Tyrantrum: www.youtube.com/watch?v=QLbvR4…

Thanatos has arrived in Alola and is currently shacked up in at the daycare with a female foreign Tyrantrum. How legal is it for me to even possess Tyrantrum and breed them? I am assuming I would need a special license to be able to.

As long as you can control them adequately, no special license is required.

Good thing Thanatos and his mate are easy for me to control, then again I told them to be good at the day care or nor Pokepelago for a month after their breeding session is over. It feels weird to ground Tyrantrum.

Is it possible to genetically modify a tyrantrum with the traits of an indominus rex? That pokemon would even give mewtwo a run for it's money, right?

We could use the control masks or the ones used to hold mewtwo... after all it did get out because mewtwo was a psychic type Pokémon, so it has way more IQ than a tyrantrum with indominus traits.

FUCK YEAH T.REX POKEMON!!

on a related note, mine (nicknamed t\Tyrannosaurus) gets along really well with my aggron (nicknamed "Iron Beast") and my tyranitar (nicknamed "Godzilla") I wonder why...maybe because they all are rock types and dinosaurs?

I heard that some old billionaire cloned tons of extinct Pokemon and tried to build an amusement park on a tropical island around them. Apparently the Tyrantrum got loose and ate the lawyer who was hiding in a bathroom shack type thing. My own Tyrantrum fits the gentle giant outside of battle and berserker in battle personality. Many a Team Flare grunt have learned that if you mess with his friends HE WILL END YOU. He earned the name Thanatos from that conflict.

It will be an offensive powerhouse, that's for sure.

Now, if they were only a bit faster...

The biggest drawback is their low special defense and the fact they are weak to six types.

It's an even better Rock Head user then Relicanth, since it has the stats to back it up, even if it has only one move that really benefits from it, but that one move also has a base 150 power.

And when head smash won't do it, slap on dragon claw (obligatory STAB move), ice fang (chance to freeze AND flinch), and stomp/iron head (strong chance of flinching). Your opponent won't be able to do shit!

My Tyrantrum is quite the jolly Pokémon(in fact, he has a Jolly nature). He just loves having fun with the rest of my Pokémon. He's very powerful in battle, though. With Dragon Dance and a no-recoil Head Smash(due to having the hidden ability of his species, Rock Head), plus Earthquake and Dragon Claw, my Tyrantrum is no cakewalk.
