'''Hitmonchan''' ([[List of Japanese Pokémon names|Japanese]]: '''エビワラー''' ''Ebiwalar'') is a {{type|Fighting}} {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} introduced in [[Generation I]].
   
He [[Evolution|evolves]] from {{p|Tyrogue}} starting at [[level]] 20 when Tyrogue's {{stat|Defense}} is higher than his {{stat|Attack}}. It is one of {{p|Tyrogue|Tyrogue's}} three final forms.

It [[Evolution|evolves]] from {{p|Tyrogue}} starting at [[level]] 20 when Tyrogue's {{stat|Defense}} is higher than its {{stat|Attack}}. It is one of {{p|Tyrogue}}'s [[Hitmons|final forms]], the others being {{p|Hitmonlee}} and {{p|Hitmontop}}.

===Physiology===
+
Hitmonchan is a tan, humanoid Pokémon that is exclusively male with no female counterpart. There are five blunt protrusions on top of its head, and it has structures resembling pads over its shoulders. It appears to be wearing a light purple tunic and kilt, as well as red boxing gloves and light purple boxing shoes. In-between the tunic and kilt is a small, black area.
Hitmonchan is a tan colored, human-shaped Pokémon. His body resembles a light purple tunic with a skirt and fists resemble red boxing gloves. His enlarged shoulders give the appearance of shoulder pads. His purple feet give the appearance of a pair of a {{wp|boxer}} shoes. Unlike his parallel evolution, {{p|Hitmonlee}}, he has a mouth and a visible separation between body and head.
 
====Gender differences====
 
Hitmonchan is a male-only species with no female counterpart.
 
   
===Special abilities===
+
As this appearance suggests, Hitmonchan specializes in punching. It is able to throw punches too quick to be seen with the naked eye. Its punches are said to be as fast as a bullet train. By punching with a corkscrew motion, it is even capable of drilling through concrete. Even a light gaze from its punches will result in a burn. However, Hitmonchan requires a break every three minutes while fighting. Despite the need for frequent breaks, it has an unwavering spirit and will never give up in a difficult situation. In the past, it claimed {{m|Mach Punch}} and {{m|Vacuum Wave}} as [[signature move]]s. Usually found in {{DL|List of Pokémon by habitat|Urban Pokémon|urban areas,}} it is rarely seen in the wild.
Hitmonchan's most notable ability is his wide versatility in boxing--his major attacks are almost all punches, making use of the boxing gloves that protect his fists.
 
   
Hitmonchan are well-known for their capability of {{m|Mach Punch|lightning-fast punches}}, faster than bullet trains, that are impossible to be seen by the naked human eye. When doing this, it sometimes appears as if Hitmonchan is standing still, as the assault is too fast to be seen.

===In the main series===
  +
[[File:Invicible Pokemon Brothers Hitmonchan.png|thumb|240px|Hitmonchan in the {{pkmn|anime}}]]
  +
====Major appearances====
  +
Hitmonchan debuted in ''[[EP029|The Punchy Pokémon]]'', under the ownership of {{OBP|Anthony|EP029}}. He was entered in the [[P1 Grand Prix]], but he ended up losing to a Hitmonlee stolen by {{TRT}} because the match was sabotaged.
   
Although they have an extremely well-developed talent in quick, light blows, Hitmonchan can also throw power-packed punches. By punching in corkscrew fashion, they are able to punch through solid concrete in the same way as a drill.
+
A Hitmonchan appeared in ''[[EP084|The Lost Lapras]]'', under the ownership of [[Three punks|a Trainer]] who ordered him to attack a {{AP|Lapras}}. When {{Ash}} and {{AP|Pikachu}} came to Lapras's defense, Hitmonchan battled Pikachu, only for he and his {{pkmn|Trainer}} to flee after {{Tracey}} appeared, sketched them, and began comparing them in terms of how they were trained. According to Tracey, Hitmonchan lacked exercise.
   
Before making contact with a target, Hitmonchan will spin his arms to increase the power of his attacks. Both his speed and power punches slice the air, and are launched at such a high speed, just a slight graze by one can cause a burn.
+
A Hitmonchan appeared in ''[[EP090|Stage Fight!]]'', under the ownership of [[Roger]]. He was a major performer in a Pokémon show about a boxing match between him and a glove-wearing {{p|Machoke}}.
   
===Behavior===
+
A Hitmonchan appeared in ''[[EP136|Chikorita's Big Upset]]'' as a member of a group of {{pkmn2|wild}} {{type|Fighting}} Pokémon that roamed the streets of a city as a gang. He befriended {{AP|Chikorita}} after she defeated its leader, a {{p|Primeape}}, and became the new gang leader.
It is widely said that Hitmonchan possesses the spirit of a professional boxer working towards the world championship. With an indomitable spirit pushing him to work harder, he never gives up, especially in the face of adversity. However, he usually needs a short break after each fight he takes part in.
 
   
Hitmonchan are known to casually practice and hone their abilities by launching unseen volleys of punches. Since they aren't normally found in the wild, it can be hard to determine their behavior without a {{pkmn|Trainer}}'s influence. When under the possession of a Trainer, however, a Hitmonchan will eventually take after the person, as most Pokémon do; he may become a hard worker, striving to become better, or he might fight for bad purposes without question.
+
A Hitmonchan appeared in ''[[EP233|A Tyrogue Full of Trouble]]'', under the ownership of [[Kiyo]]. He fought alongside him to break a rolling boulder. Kiyo later used Hitmonchan in battle during an attempt to {{pkmn2|caught|catch}} a {{pkmn2|wild}} {{p|Tyrogue}}.
   
===Habitat===
+
A Hitmonchan appeared in ''[[EP273|Gotta Catch Ya Later!]]'', under the ownership of one of the [[Invincible Pokémon Brothers]]. He battled against [[Misty's Politoed]] but was defeated. He reappeared in ''[[HS02|Cerulean Blues]]'', where he was used in a battle against [[Misty's Staryu]], which he lost on a technicality.
[[Image:Urban.gif|right|frame|{{DL|List of Pokémon by habitat|Urban Pokémon}}]]
 
Hitmonchan are extremely rare in the wild, and have virtually never been seen. He is an urban species that would typically be found near cities or suburbs rather than in forests. But, some Hitmonchan have been known to train in the mountains or at facilities made for such work, such as an abandoned fighting dojo. While it is unknown where they came from originally, they were first found in [[Kanto]].
 
   
===Diet===
+
A Hitmonchan appeared in ''[[AG145|Pasta La Vista]]'', under the ownership of [[Kyle Hamm]]. It was used in battle to decide the fate of [[Master Hamm|his father]]'s fighting dojo.

Hitmonchan (Japanese: エビワラー Ebiwalar) is a Fighting-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

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

Biology

Hitmonchan is a tan, humanoid Pokémon that is exclusively male with no female counterpart. There are five blunt protrusions on top of its head, and it has structures resembling pads over its shoulders. It appears to be wearing a light purple tunic and kilt, as well as red boxing gloves and light purple boxing shoes. In-between the tunic and kilt is a small, black area.

As this appearance suggests, Hitmonchan specializes in punching. It is able to throw punches too quick to be seen with the naked eye. Its punches are said to be as fast as a bullet train. By punching with a corkscrew motion, it is even capable of drilling through concrete. Even a light gaze from its punches will result in a burn. However, Hitmonchan requires a break every three minutes while fighting. Despite the need for frequent breaks, it has an unwavering spirit and will never give up in a difficult situation. In the past, it claimed Mach Punch and Vacuum Wave as signature moves. Usually found in urban areas, it is rarely seen in the wild.

Trivia

  • Hitmonchan learns the most increased-priority moves by leveling up out of all Pokémon, with six.
  • Hitmonchan and Hitmonlee are the only Pokémon not previously related through an evolutionary family that later gained a shared pre-evolved form.
  • Hitmonchan's Kanto and National Pokédex number, #107, refers to Little Mac, whose weight is 107 pounds (ca. 49 kg).
  • Despite the requirement for its evolution being a higher Defense than Attack, Hitmonchan's Attack stat is much higher than its Defense stat.
  • Hitmonchan and Hitmonlee received the biggest increase to their Special stat in Generation II, gaining 75 points of Special Defense.

Origin

Based on its Japanese name and boxer aspects, Hitmonchan may represent the boxer Hiroyuki Ebihara. The colors of Hitmonchan's gloves in its normal and Shiny colorations might be a reference to the red corner and blue corner in boxing. Its Gold, HeartGold, Generation V, and X Pokédex entries mention that it needs a short break after fighting for three minutes, which is a reference to the duration of rounds in boxing.

Name origin

Hitmonchan is a combination of hit, monster, and Chan (a reference to Jackie Chan). The name is also related to Tyrogue's other evolutions, Hitmonlee and Hitmontop.

Ebiwalar is derived from the Japanese world champion boxer Hiroyuki Ebihara.
