Trivia

  • No other Pokémon has the same type combination as Pyroar and its pre-evolution.
  • Pyroar is the only Pokémon with a base stat total of 507.
  • Pyroar shares its species name with Slowking. They are both known as the Royal Pokémon.
  • The male Pyroar's chevron-shaped nose in the Sugimori art is not used in other Pokémon merchandise, games, or anime. It instead has a triangular shaped nose, similar to that of the female.


Origin

Pyroar is based on a lion. The style of its fur, in particular the spiked areas on its limbs and tail, more than likely is a reference to stylized lions in heraldry and coat of arms. The yellow pattern on the mane of a male Pyroar is similar in shape to the Daimonji, a bonfire lit during the Japanese festival Gozan no Okuribi in the shape of the symbol 大 (meaning great or large). The shape also resembles the kanji for fire (火), as written in certain (often calligraphic) styles. Its gender ratio (25% male, 75% female) also resembles lions prides, which consist of one primary male lion, several females and one or two lesser males.

Name origin

Pyroar may be a combination of pyro and roar.

Kaenjishi is a combination of 火炎 kaen (flame) and 獅子 shishi (lion).
