Ferrothorn is a Pokémon that looks like a flattened durian. It has thorns covering its metallic body and three black bands surrounding its breadth. Just below its eyes, the center stripe contains triangular forms with green rims, yellow sclerae, and black pupils. It has a green spike on top of its body, and its feelers are vine-like, long green appendages capped with spiky metal disks that stretch around it. Ferrothorn may utilize these feelers to cling to cave ceilings or wander about. Ferrothorn’s feelers are also used to extract nutrients from rocks. It attacks by blasting spikes that are tougher than steel.
