Magmar (Japanese: ブーバー Boober) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon.

Biology

Physiology

Magmar is a Pokémon with a human-like stance that has traits of a duck and a mythical salamander. Magmar has a red body with a yellow flame design on it. It has a yellow tail that has a flame on it. Magmar has yellow thighs, black legs and red feet with two toes each. Magmar's arms are covered in red, rigid scales and it has red hands with five fingers. Magmar has a row of red spikes running down its back. Magmar has two lumps on its forehead with a flame on top of each one, and a yellow beak.

Origin

Magmar seems to be a combination of a duck or booby with a mythical salamander of fire. However, the tail and the spikes on its back make it bear a resemblance to an iguana. It also be based on a Karura.

Name origin

Magmar's name may just be a corruption of the word magma, intrusive molten rock. Its Japanese name might be a corruption of booby, a type of sea bird.
