Litleo (Japanese: シシコ Shishiko) is a dual-type Fire/Normal Pokémon introduced in Generation VI.

It evolves into Pyroar starting at level 35.

Biology

Litleo is a quadrupedal, leonine Pokémon. It is mostly dark brown with pale brown paws, ears, tail tip, and face. It has a short, rounded muzzle with a reddish-orange nose, round ears with darker interiors, and circular, black eyes with white pupils. There is a reddish-orange tuft of fur between its ears. Each of its paws has three toes and dark brown paw pads. The tail ends in a pointed, teardrop shape.

Litleo is a hot-blooded Pokémon that is curious by nature and is quick to start fights. In battle, its short mane radiates heat. The stronger its opponent, the more heat it produces. When a wild Litleo is capable of hunting on its own, it is kicked out of the pride and begins to live alone. In Generation VI, Noble Roar was its signature move.
