#128 Tauros

1920×1200 | 1920×1080 | 1600×1200


Tauros, a Wild Bull Pokémon. When whipping itself with its three tails, its Tackle is a powerful destructive force.
– Ash’s Pokedex

Tauros, the original bovine Pokemon. As of Gen V, it’s still alone, evolutionary family-wise. I still can’t get over the fact that neither Miltank nor Bouffalant are related to Tauros. I still think that next gen should have a calf-based baby Pokemon; if it’s male, it evolves into Tauros, if female, it’ll evolve into Miltank.

In the anime, Ash caught 30 Tauros in the Safari Zone, because every time he threw a Safari Ball, a Tauros would get in the way, so he ended up with 30 of them. That episode was banned in many countries however, due to the warren pointing a gun at Ash’s head. Now those Tauros are living at Professor Oak’s ranch.

Stat-wise, it has good Speed and Attack, making it a decent physical sweeper. Its abilities Intimidate, Anger Point, or Sheer Force (DW) are all useful.
