The same post that told us these names on 2ch, said Pokabu is the ひぶたポケモン (Fire Pig Pokémon). This name may come from ぽかぽか (pokapoka), which means "warmth throughout your body", and 豚 (buta), which means Pig.--KurowaSan 01:07, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

Just to better cover the name origin, the "bu" part of Pokabu can come either from buta (豚 pig) or būbū (ブーブー the sound a pig makes, oink-oink).--KurowaSan 23:36, 14 May 2010 (UTC)


Pokabu is the first quadraped Fire-type starter. Charmander, Cyndaquil, Torchic, and Chimchar are all bipeds, (when standing still, in Cyndaquil's case).--MegaTroopX

Cyndaquil I think, despite being able to stand on its hind legs, cannot walk on them like so. I think I recall seeing that in the anime at least. But I could be wrong. Mudkipchan 03:17, 13 May 2010 (UTC)
According to the body style section of the Pokédex, Cyndaquil is in fact bipedal. So I think this could be valid trivia. --AndyPKMN 13:28, 13 May 2010 (UTC)
And Typhlosion is classified as being Quadruple, despite it being depicted as being bipedal. Just goes to show... Mudkipchan 19:08, 13 May 2010 (UTC)
First Fire-type first stage Starter, then? It's also the first Fire starter not to have flames somewhere on it's body, that could work as Trivia maybe? Reign 19:28, 13 May 2010 (UTC)
Torchic doesn't have flames on its body either. Werdnae (talk) 19:41, 13 May 2010 (UTC)
Oh, right. That was stupid of me. Reign 19:43, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

Guess Evolutions

Who else figures this lil guy will end up a Wild Boar type?

Type Match-ups

Why does the type match-up section talk about typing as if the phyical-special split never happened? Was it confirmed that the split was going to be removed? Poisson14 08:10, 22 May 2010 (UTC)

Hm? We did some template moving earlier, which brought an old template up to the forefront again. TTEchidna 08:43, 22 May 2010 (UTC)


Anyone else note the fact pokabu is simmilar to pikablu? or am i stringing wrong ideas together? - unsigned comment from Ben7229 (talkcontribs)

Pokabu is its Japanese name, and Pikablu is a nickname given to Marill. Physically, they've got nothing in common. Probably just a coincidence. Takharii ~ Talk! 22:14, 22 May 2010 (UTC)


It doesn't have any fire on it's body and it's name doesn't start with Hi... Is this trivia matter? Kamus, the kpo... 06:59, 23 May 2010 (UTC)

Not in my books. —darklordtrom 07:09, 23 May 2010 (UTC)
Torchic has no fire on its body and its Japanese name Achamo starts with ア not ヒ. Otherwise you would have been fine.--SnorlaxMonster 07:39, 23 May 2010 (UTC)

Physiology for the admins to implement

Pokabu: "Pokabu is a pig-like Pokémon, primarily orange in coloration with the additional colors of black, pink, and yellow on various portions of its body. It has large, ovular eyes, an archetypically piglike ruddy-pink nose, and a thick stripe of yellow over its snout. Much of its face has black coloration, and its ears, long and oblong, are positioned closely together on the top of its head. Pokabu has short legs, with the extremities of its forefeet being black in coloration. There is a band of black on its lower back and rear, from which extends its coiled tail, topped with a ruddy-red bauble-like adornment." Hopefully this helps. Also, I was not sure if its extremities---farthermost portions of its limbs--- should be called hooves or paws, so I left it at "extremities". Steph 21:01, 23 May 2010 (UTC)

Thanks. —darklordtrom 20:40, 24 May 2010 (UTC)


I know this is just major speculation on my part, but don't Pokabu and Hihidaruma look alike? Their types are even the same. Also, in the leaked anime art that was proven real, they have evolution of Tsutarja and Mijumaru, but not Pokabu. So it might be an evolution, but it also might not. And don't say that there is no proof of it. That I know, and there's no proff that it's not. Pawsrent 18:05, 8 July 2010 (UTC)
