Name of final evo is Enbuuo.--Makupe 12:58, 16 September 2010 (UTC)
- This page should be 'Emboar'. Because of the way Japanese characters work, it is spelled 'Enbuoo' using Japanese characters, just like Zekrom is writted 'Zekuromu' etc. Folktaliesin 12:30, 5 October 2010 (UTC)
Guess of Name origin. 炎(en/Flame) 武(bu/Martial arts) 王(Ō/King)
It is a guess. Sawamular101 22:29, 29 September 2010 (UTC)
Origin. Soldier of "Romance of the Three Kingdoms".
- Question: Why does everybody post references to Japanese blogs WITHOUT a translation as to what they're saying? I'd really like to look at the references for these kinds of things, but not everyone here knows Japanese you know..... Shiramu Kuromu 20:26, 7 January 2011 (UTC)
- I understand your concern, but if you want to translate it, try using an online translator like Google translate on the page. It's great for getting the general idea of the text. Anyway, I don't see how we could functionally provide a link to a translation for a reference. --SnorlaxMonster 11:23, 8 January 2011 (UTC)
Possible American football player origin?
Enbuoo possibly may have taken inspiration from American football players, as it is bulky in appearance and the flames around its neck flare up to what resembles shoulder pads. The ball used in American football is sometimes referred to as a "pigskin", and Enbuoo is based on a pig. Its level up and egg moves further reflect this. In American football, players tackle and blitz their way to scoring touchdowns. Enbuoo's moves Tackle, Flare Blitz, Arm Thrust, Endeavor, Body Slam, and Take Down all contribute to this. Defensive football players use their larger weight to get the best of the fast offensive players, as Enbuoo does with its moves Heavy Bomber and Heat Stamp. Unova has football players as trainers this time around as well, so they defenitely were thinking about them when they made the games. Anyone else think this is a valid origin?-- Swagmander 19:52, 8 February 2011 (UTC)
"Enbuoh is based on the soldier of Romance of the Three Kingdoms. It and its pre-evolutions, as stated by Ken Sugimori, were designed in a Chinese style." Tell me, does China have football?--Black Yin Zekrom 17:33, 8 February 2011 (UTC)
True, I realize this and know that Sugimori designed Enbuoo with a Chinese style. However, several Pokémon have more than one inspiration for their designs and moves. Black and White include several references to North American culture. The main reason I suggested this origin was due to Enbuoo's stance and movepool.-- Swagmander 19:52, 8 February 2011 (UTC)
