It has three spikes on top of its head which resembles a crest, yellow irises, and circular sections on the sides of its head like protective padding. Its height is 2'04" and weight is 46.3 lbs.
Tyrogue is a male-only species with no female counterpart.
While it is a Fighting-type Pokémon, Tyrogue's fighting skills are somewhat limited as it is. It has not developed its own fighting style just yet. However, if a particular Tyrogue has its later evolutions for fathers, it possesses the remarkable ability to possess several moves that are otherwise exclusive to its later evolutions.
Tyrogue are famous for their eagerness to compete and fight, to such an extent that it will challenge anyone, even larger foes. It always nurses its injuries from challenging larger foes, and, due to fighting opponents larger than itself, is constantly covered with cuts and bruises. As Tyrogue becomes stressed if it is not able to train every day, a Trainer of a Tyrogue must maintain a regular training schedule. No matter how much a Tyrogue loses, it will not quit and will keep on fighting.
They are urban species that would be usually found in urban areas.

Tyrogue ended up forming a gang of Mankey and Primeape and together they would steal from weary travelers, such as Tom, Ash and thier friends. But thanks to a Black Belt named Kiyo, who had been pursuing him, Tyrogue reformed a trust with humans and ended up becoming his newest Pokémon.
