A Firebreather (Japanese: ひふきやろう Fire-breathing Guy) is a type of Pokémon Trainer that first debuted in the Generation II games. In Generation II they were depicted as overweight clowns spewing out flames, while HeartGold and SoulSilver redesigned them and they now wear clothing designed after Magmar.

They specialize in Fire-type Pokémon. They may, however, use Poison-type Pokémon that produce smoke, like Koffing and Weezing, as well.

Takeo

In the Pokémon Gold & Silver: The Golden Boys manga

A Firebreather by the name of (Japanese: タケオ Takeo) appeared in Let's Aim For The Goal. He signed up for a basketball tournament that both Gold and Bugsy took part in. Bugsy pointed out to Gold that he was one of the strong opponents there and Bugsy himself would have been no match for him. During the tournament, Takeo managed to get to the final round where he faced off against Gold and Bugsy. Despite putting up a great fight, Gold ultimately defeats him.

Two Voltorb were also signed up with Takeo. Using Double Team, they distracted Gold and Bugsy from the real basketball by pretending to be other balls but were foiled by Bugsy's Metapod and Kakuna's String Shot.

Voltorb's only known move is Double Team.

Trivia

  • Between Generations II and IV, one Firebreather got a name change from "Dick" to "Richard," likely due to the secondary meaning of the name Dick, itself a diminutive of the name Richard.
    • A sprite color change in Pokémon Gold and Silver occurs after Dick loses a battle against the player, from red to gray.
