Paldean Tauros

Scarlet This Pokémon has a muscular body and excels at close-quarters combat. It uses its short horns to strike the opponent’s weak spots.
Violet This kind of Tauros, known as the Combat Breed, is distinguished by its thick, powerful muscles and its fierce disposition.

Paldean Fire Tauros

Scarlet When heated by fire energy, its horns can get hotter than 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit. Those gored by them will suffer both wounds and burns.
Violet People call this kind of Tauros the Blaze Breed due to the hot air it snorts from its nostrils. Its three tails are intertwined.

Paldean Water Tauros

Scarlet This Pokémon blasts water from holes on the tips of its horns—the high-pressure jets pierce right through Tauros’s enemies.
Violet It swims by jetting water from its horns. The most notable characteristic of the Aqua Breed is its high body fat, which allows it to float easily.
