Dinosaur King

Theropods are a major branch of the dinosaur family tree, comprising of all of the primarily carnivorous members (save possibly a few of the most basal ancestral forms), but also featuring some herbivorous-leaning families in the lead up to the emergence of Aves, the birds, making them the only surviving dinosaur clade. They are classically grouped with sauropods into the Saurischia branch opposite Ornithischia, though alternate arrangements have been proposed both long ago and recently; the exact array is unclear as all branches' ancestors looked similar and the fossil record is quite limited from that era.

Being such a large group, its members are split between two primary elements even within most families, Wind for small and some medium species, and Fire for large and other medium species (and all tyrannosaurs), with the fish-eating spinosaurids belonging to Water instead; they also have members featured in Normal Moves and one in a Grass Move, as well as among Secret Dinosaurs.
