Growlithe (Japanese: ガーディ Gardie) is a Fire-type Pokémon.

It evolves into Arcanine when exposed to a Fire Stone.

Biology

Physiology

Growlithe is a quadruped, canine Pokémon. It has a short, rounded muzzle, a small, fluffy tail, a tuft of fur on top of its head, and rounded ears. It has bright orange fur with black stripes over its back and on its forelegs. Its belly, tail, and fluff on top of its head are a cream color. Its nose is shiny black, while the insides of its ears are light brown. Growlithe has two claws on its forepaws, and its paw pads are brown.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Growlithe can spit fire. It has a powerful sense of smell to identify the emotions of others. Upon getting a scent, it will not forget it, no matter what. However, strong, unpleasant smells can disable their sense of smell for short periods, as seen in The Case of the K-9 Caper.

Behavior

Extremely loyal, this Pokémon fiercely defends its Trainer and territory.

Habitat

Growlithe live in active volcanoes, grassy plains, and scorched plains heated by geothermal energy. Its native range includes Kanto and Johto, as well as Fiore and Almia, but it can be found in Sinnoh and Unova on some occasions. In captivity, they're often used as police dogs due to their loyal nature and powerful sense of smell. They're also seen occasionally as pets.

Trivia

Origin

Growlithe is most likely based on Japanese 獅子 Shisa, which are Japanese dog statues. It is also possible that they could take homage from shishi, or 狛犬 koma-inu, which are guardian statues found in China that resemble lions, with traits of tigers and dogs. They are incorrectly called "Foo dogs" in the West. Both Shisa and Shishi statues alike are often found in pairs, are used as guardians, and are believed to invite good luck. This could have been inspiration for Growlithe's protective nature.

Name origin

Growlithe may be a combination of growl and lithe (limber or flexible).

Gardie may refer to its abilities as a guard dog, as a corruption of guard or guardian.
