Trivia

  • In the Latin American dub of the anime, Ember was called Ámbar in the Original Series, which means amber, not ember.
    • In Advanced Generation, Ember was incorrectly called Sorpresa, which is the Spanish name for Fake Out.
  • Ember's secondary animation is the same as the burn animation from Generation III onwards.
