A Hitmonlee in the anime

Hitmonlee first appeared in The Punchy Pokémon. Team Rocket stole him from a man named Giant in order to compete in the P1 Grand Prix. The Kicking Pokémon defeated Brock's Geodude, and Anthony's Hitmonchan (by cheating) and lost fair and square to Ash's Primeape.

Another Hitmonlee appears in Showdown at Dark City as one of the Yas Gym's Pokémon.

A Hitmonlee was one of the Pokémon that were captured and cloned by Mewtwo in Mewtwo Strikes Back.

Shiro, a challenger to the dojo in Two Hits and a Miss uses a Hitmonlee.

Wobbu-palooza featured a Hitmonlee belonging to a Festival Crasher.

One of the Invincible Pokémon Brothers in Cerulean Blues has a Hitmonlee.

A Hitmonlee was used during the preliminaries of the Hoenn League by Gilbert in Saved by the Beldum. Gilbert's Hitmonlee lost to Ash's Pikachu.

Master Hamm used a Hitmonlee against his son Kyle, a cook, in Pasta la Vista. If the Dojo Master won, he would retire, and Kyle would have to give up his shop for the Dojo. If Kyle won, it would all stay the same. Ash, and May ended up taking the place of the two. As it was a draw, Kyle and his father decided to both work at the restaurant while Kyle's girlfriend Terry took up ownership of the Dojo.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Special manga

Hitmonlee makes a cameo in Danger: High Voltorb as a mysterious Pokémon aboard the S.S. Anne.

Hitmonlee later appears as one of Bruno's Pokémon, who destroyed Bill's house. Bruno explains that Hitmonlee's legs are so flexible, it's impossible to locate the position of its knees and attack them.

Hitmonlee was also seen as one of Chuck's Pokémon. In the Gym Leader faceoff of Template:PSV, it used Mind Reader and Reversal to turn Green's tactics against him.

In the TCG

Main article: Hitmonlee (TCG)

Other appearances

Trivia

  • Shiny Hitmonlee's legs have changed from purple to staying gray compared to the normal sprite.

Origin

It may be a personification of Taekwondo, a martial art that focuses on kicking and strengthening legs. Hitmonlee bares the resemblance of Blemmyes due to his lack of an actual head.

Name origin

Hitmonlee's name can be broken down into hit, monster and Lee - as in Bruce Lee; perhaps meaning "the monster that hits like Bruce Lee". The name is also related to Hitmonchan and Hitmontop, both of which are parallel evolutions to it as of Generation II. Its Japanese name comes from the world's first kickboxer, さわむら ただし, Tadashi Sawamura.
