Monferno (Japanese: モウカザル Moukazaru) is a dual-type Fire/Fighting Pokémon.

It evolves from Chimchar starting at level 14, and evolves into Infernape starting at level 36.

Biology

Physiology

Much of Monferno's hair is a bright orange color. Monferno now has an evident tail, unlike its Template:P2. Its tail is similar to those of Charmander, Charmeleon, and Charizard, all of whom have flames at the tips. Monferno's flame is often used as a weapon. When threatened, it increases the size of its flame in order to appear larger than it really is, which is useful in scaring off attacking foes. It has white hair around its neck and gold arm bands. Monferno has blue and red markings on its face.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Monferno's abilities are similar to Chimchar's, only stronger. Monferno is capable of a few new Fighting-type moves; such as Close Combat and Focus Blast, as well as Flare Blitz.

Behavior

As the playful Pokémon, Monferno are naturally playful. However, they use fierce martial arts techniques.

Habitat

Monferno live in rainforests on mountains.
