Rhyhorn is very common and boosted in the common Sunny, but Rhyperior is a Sinnoh Stone evolution Pokemon. Rhydon is a pretty good Ground-Type as well, so if you get a good moveset on it and don’t have the candy or stone to evolve, it’s not that bad. It’s also great as a Rock-Type attacker with different moves. Rhyhorn currently can be found in nests. With Level 35 Rhyperior you need 2 players.
