Tarexite is a Pokémon based on a Tyrannosaurus Rex. It has a large black tail with tan stripes and a red flame burning at the tip, two black legs with three red claws on each black foot, a tan lower jawline, a tan belly with black stripes, two small black arms with three red claws on each black hand, red shoulder blades, red spikes along its back, and its black head has two nostrils, two white eyes with orange irises and black pupils, and three red spikes; two as eyebrows and the third one at the back of its head.
Long ago, Tarexite were the apex predators of prehistoric Rikoto. Records show that they were able to hunt even the midst of a volcanic eruption.

Although Tarexite's Pokédex entry said that it was a predator, it is commonly thought that the Tyrannosaurus Rex was a scavenger in real life.
In its old design, Tarexite had red bumps along its back, its tail also had red bumps but no tan stripes, its hands had no claws, it had only two thin black stripes at its chest, it had red around its eyes, which had pale yellow irises, and it had five red horns on its head; four at the top and one on its nose. This made it look a little bit like a Triceratops.
Tyrunt and Tyrantrum are canon fossil Pokémon that are also based on the Tyrannosaurus Rex. They also have Strong Jaw, but it's their regular Ability.
Also, Tyrunt and Tyrantrum are part Dragon-type, not part Fire-type like Rexite and Tarexite are.
Prior to Version 1.0.1, Tarexite uses Shieldon's cry.
