Pink Rathian is a Subspecies of the Rathian introduced in Monster Hunter G. She is known to inhabit temperate and tropical areas and can be encountered at Low, High, and G Ranks.
Pink Rathian has a more heavily-armoured body and has greater health than her green relative. She can often be found in various quests alongside her gender counterpart, the Azure Rathalos.
Her attacks are generally stronger than those of normal Rathian, but that aside the two are identical in many ways.
