Trivia

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 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 pyr- and roar.

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