Tyrogue (Japanese: バルキー Balkie) is a Fighting-type baby Pokémon.

It evolves into one of three different Pokémon starting at level 20:

Biology

Tyrogue is a humanoid Pokémon with a predominantly pale purple body and brown hips and feet that resemble short pants and shoes. It has three blunt protrusions on top of its head, yellow eyes, and circular sections on each side of its head that resemble protective padding. There are white bands resembling bandages on its torso and wrists. It has thin limbs, and its hands have three fingers each. Tyrogue is a male-only species with no female counterpart.

Tyrogue is famous for its eagerness to compete and boundless energy, to such an extent that it will challenge anyone, even larger foes. Determined to make itself stronger, Tyrogue will not quit no matter how many times it loses. As a result, it is always nursing its injuries from fighting opponents larger than itself. As Tyrogue becomes stressed if it is not able to train every day, its Trainer must maintain a regular training schedule. It is usually found in urban areas.

In the anime

Major appearances

Tyrogue's first appearance was in A Tyrogue Full of Trouble. It had been abandoned by his previous Trainer and left to fend for itself. Because of this, it developed a hatred towards humans. Tyrogue ended up forming a gang of Mankey and Primeape, and together they would steal from weary travelers, such as Ash and his friends. But thanks to a Black Belt named Kiyo, who had been pursuing him, Tyrogue reformed a trust with humans and ended up becoming his newest Pokémon.

Minor appearances

A Tyrogue appeared in Gary's explanation in Johto Photo Finish.

A Tyrogue also appeared in Dressed for Jess Success! as one of the Pokémon entered in the Lilypad Contest. Tyrogue made it to the final round but lost to James's Carnivine.

A Tyrogue appeared in the Sinnoh Grand Festival in Opposites Interact!.

A Tyrogue made a brief appearance under the ownership of a Trainer in the Lily of the Valley Conference in An Old Family Blend!.

Trivia

  • Tyrogue and Eevee are the only Pokémon that can evolve into more than two Pokémon.
  • Tyrogue is the only baby Pokémon with a branched evolution.
  • Tyrogue is the only baby Pokémon whose stats are all equal.
  • If a Tyrogue is hacked into Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen before the National Pokédex is obtained, it will be able to evolve into Hitmonlee or Hitmonchan, but due to FireRed and LeafGreen preventing evolution into non-Generation I Pokémon, it will be unable to evolve into Hitmontop.
  • Tyrogue is the only Pokémon whose evolution is determined by stats.
  • While Hitmontop shares the Ability Steadfast with Tyrogue, Tyrogue is unable to retain this Ability after evolving. This is because Tyrogue's Steadfast is its second Ability, while Hitmontop's Steadfast is its Hidden Ability.
  • Tyrogue has the lowest base stat total of all Fighting-type Pokémon.
    • Tyrogue also has the lowest HP and Attack base stats of all Fighting-type Pokémon.
  • Tyrogue is the only Pokémon that created a shared evolution family between two Pokémon that were previously unrelated.

Origin

It draws inspiration, especially in its most recent artwork, from wrestlers. The designs on Tyrogue's body resemble the uniform of most scholastic wrestling teams—possibly showing its maturity as a fighter (a younger creature, while its evolutions seem more professional).

Name origin

Tyrogue is a combination of tyro (a beginner) or tyke (child) and rogue (one who is playfully mischievous). Ty may also be referring to Mike Tyson.

Balkie may be a corruption of bulky.
