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 and has 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 its appearance suggests, Hitmonchan specializes in punching. It is able to throw punches that are 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. Usually found in urban areas, it is rarely seen in the wild. In Generation II, Mach Punch was its signature move.

Trivia

  • Hitmonchan learns the most increased-priority moves by leveling up out of all Pokémon, with six.
  • Hitmonchan and Hitmonlee are the only Pokémon that were initially unrelated via evolution family but later became related in this way.
  • Hitmonchan's Kanto and National Pokédex number, #107, could refer 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 may be 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 may be derived from the Japanese world champion boxer Hiroyuki Ebihara.
