(Japanese: チャオブー Chaobu) is a dual-type Fire/Fighting Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

It evolves from Pokabu, though the method by which it does so is currently unknown.

Biology

Physiology

Chaobu is a pig-like Pokémon that sports orange, black, and yellow coloration. Fangs protrude from the lower jaw of its wide mouth, and its black, tapered ears are on the top of its head. The black coloration from there extends down to its nose, which, like its pre-evolution Pokabu, is red and piglike. Black coloration encompasses the shoulders, sides, and underbelly of Chaobu, which could be said to resemble the garb of a wrestler of some sort. Gold-colored, swirling features adorn its chest on the black pattern, and the pattern forms spiky shapes on the lower underbelly. The forelimbs of Chaobu have glove-like patterns, with gold bands at the “wrists” and black at the tips of the “hands”, which have two claws. Its legs are small with a single nailed toe, and its curled, wiry black tail is tipped with a puffy feature.
