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. Hitmonchan is the only known Pokémon capable of learning Mach Punch and Vacuum Wave in Pokémon Sword and Shield. 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.
