Pokédex entries

Diamond Its powerful head butt has enough power to shatter even the most durable things upon impact.
Pearl Its skull is as hard as iron. It is a brute that tears down jungle trees while catching prey.
Platinum If two were to smash their heads together, their foot-thick skulls would keep them from fainting.
HeartGold
SoulSilver

Sun The result of repeated headbutts is a skull grown thick and hard. However, its brain has shrunk in size compared with Cranidos’s.
Moon Records exist of a revived fossil that evolved into Rampardos. It proceeded to escape and then destroy a skyscraper with a headbutt.
Ultra Sun In ancient times, people would dig up fossils of this Pokémon and use its skull, which is harder than steel, to make helmets.
Ultra Moon This ancient Pokémon used headbutts skillfully. Its brain was really small, so some theories suggest that its stupidity led to its extinction.
