Pignite (Japanese: チャオブー Chaoboo) is a dual-type Fire/Fighting Pokémon.

It evolves from Tepig starting at level 17 and evolves into Emboar starting at level 36.

Biology

Pignite is a bipedal, pig-like Pokémon. Its chubby body is orange with brown bands around its shoulders, sides, belly, hands, and from the back of its head down its snout. Yellow bands encircle its wrists, and swirled yellow designs bulge from its chest. It has a red pig-like nose, pointed ears, and two pointed teeth that protrude from its lower jaw. Its hands have two claws each, while its feet have only a single nail. Its tail is curled with a tuft of fur at the tip.

Pignite has a fire in its stomach, which it fuels with food. The intensity of this flame increases as fuel is added or when Pignite is angered. As the flame grows stronger, Pignite's speed increases. When in trouble, Pignite emits smoke. Its signature move is Heat Crash.

Trivia

  • Pignite is the only Pokémon with a base stat total of 418.
  • Pignite was revealed internationally in the opening Black and White.
  • Pignite was a popular fan name given to Tepig before either Pokémon's English name was officially revealed.
  • Pignite and its evolutionary relatives were created by Lee HyunJung.

Origin

Ken Sugimori has said that Tepig, Pignite, and Emboar were designed in a Chinese style. Because of this, they may be based on Zhu Bajie, a pig demon from the Chinese tale Journey to the West. Infernape is also based on a character from the novel, Sun Wukong, and has a similar design. Pignite looks much like a pig or wild boar in a wrestling singlet. The swirls on its chest resemble the patterns on a ding or ancient Greek pottery.

Name origin

Pignite is a combination of pig and ignite.

Chaoboo may be a combination of 超 chāo (Chinese for super) or 炒 chǎo (Chinese for stir frying) and 豚 buta (pig) or ブー (oink).
