Hitmonlee (Japanese: サワムラー Sawamular) is a Fighting-type Pokémon.

It evolves from Tyrogue starting at level 20 when Tyrogue's Attack is higher than its Defense. It is one of Tyrogue's final forms, the others being Hitmonchan and Hitmontop.

Biology

Hitmonlee is a humanoid Pokémon with an ovoid body. Lacking a distinct neck and head, its upper torso has almond-shaped eyes with black rings around them and appears to lack a nose and mouth. Primarily brown, it has cream-colored, segmented arms and legs, with three fingers and three clawed toes respectively. The soles of its feet and its ankles have circular, yellow markings. It is an exclusively male species with no female counterpart.

Hitmonlee's legs freely contract and stretch similar to a coiled spring. This flexibility allows Hitmonlee to run with lengthy strides and gives it greater reach for its kicks. Its excellent sense of balance enables it to kick in succession from any position. After battling, it rubs down its legs to relax the tight muscles. Rare in the wild, it is primarily found in urban areas.

As it was a draw, Kyle and his father decided to both work at the restaurant while Kyle's friend Terri took up ownership of the Dojo.

Other appearances

Super Smash Bros.

When released from a Poké Ball, Hitmonlee will perform a Jump Kick targeting the nearest opponent. The jump moves in an arc heavily affected by gravity, but deals a great amount of damage and upward knockback to any foe it hits. Hitmonlee was replaced by Scizor in Super Smash Bros. Melee, who attacks in a similar way.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U

Hitmonlee appears as a trophy in the 3DS version of the game.

Trophy information

Sometimes referred to as the Kick Master, this flexible Fighting-type Pokémon can extend each leg to nearly twice its natural length. It can often be seen rubbing its legs down after a battle. In the original Super Smash Bros., it would shout to get itself pumped up and then launch fighters directly upward with a powerful kick.

Trivia

Origin

Hitmonlee may be a personification of taekwondo, a sport that focuses on kick attacks. Due to its lack of a head, Hitmonlee bears resemblance to the mythical headless men and the Hindu demon Kabandha. Based on its Japanese name and kicking attribute, Hitmonlee may also represent Japanese kickboxer Tadashi Sawamura. From the Japanese names of its Abilities—Flexible, Life-Risking and Acrobatics—Hitmonlee may also be based on an acrobat.

Name origin

Hitmonlee is a combination of hit, monster, and Lee (a reference to Bruce Lee). The name is also related to Hitmonchan and Hitmontop, both of which are parallel evolutions to it as of Generation II.

Sawamular is derived from Tadashi Sawamura, a famous kickboxer.
