Emboar (Japanese: エンブオー Enbuoh) is a dual-type Fire/Fighting Pokémon.

It evolves from Pignite starting at level 36. It is the final form of Tepig.

Biology

Physiology

Emboar is an enormous, bulky, boar-like Fire-type Pokémon. It has short legs, a small tail ending in a tuft of hair and a small dome shaped head with no neck. Its egg shaped torso makes up most of its body. It has two powerful arms, which grow wider towards its fists with tufts of fur on the elbows. Constantly burning flames wreath the front of its neck and shoulders resembling a traditional Chinese center-parted beard. It has a red pig-like nose and large bushy black eyebrows that sweep up at the sides like horns or ears. Two tusks protrude from its lower jaw, jutting out at the corners of its wide mouth. Its forearms begin orange in coloration, with the coloration of the upper and lower arms separated by gold-colored bands. The lower arms and elbows are black, the wrists have bands of dark red coloration, and the hands are tipped with three claws. A large, dark horizontal stripe on the chest of Emboar sports swirled yellow features, and its legs and lower underside are red, although its feet are black-colored, rimmed in a spiky manner with gold, and ending in two-toed claws.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Using the wreath of flames on its neck and shoulders, Emboar will set its hands on fire to launch Fire Punches. It uses its power and speed to master Fighting-type moves. It can also unleash powerful blasts of fire using only its nose.

Behavior

Emboar cares deeply about its allies.

Minor appearances

Iris's Emolga also battled the Mega Fire Pig Pokémon only to forfeit the battle when Emolga used Volt Switch and sent out Excadrill instead, which caused Iris's loss because substitutions were not allowed during the tournament battles.

Origin

Emboar is based on the soldier of Romance of the Three Kingdoms.[1] It and its pre-evolutions, as stated by Ken Sugimori, were designed in a Chinese style. Because of its Chinese style, it may be based on Zhu Bajie, a pig demon from the Chinese tale Journey to the West. Infernape is also based on another character from the novel, Sun Wukong, and has a similar design as well as the same typing. It seems to also take inspirations of a pig or boar in a professional wrestler's or possibly a lucha libre's attire. The swirled pattern that surrounds its abdomen is visually similar to the patterns on ding or ancient Greek pottery.

Name origin

Emboar is a combination of ember and boar.

Enbuoh may be a combination of 炎 en (flame), 豚 buta (pig) or 武 bu (martial arts), and 王 ō (king). It may also be a combination of ember and boar.

In other languages

Language Title Meaning
Japan Flag.png Japanese エンブオー Enbuoh From en, buta or bu, and ō. May also be a combination of ember and boar.
