Pyroar (Japanese: カエンジシ Kaenjishi) is a dual-type Fire/Normal Pokémon introduced in Generation VI.

It evolves from Litleo starting at level 35.

Biology

Pyroar is a quadruped, leonine Pokémon. It is mostly dark brown with light brown legs, tail tip, chest, and face. It has a rounded muzzle with a dark brown nose, round ears with dark brown interiors, bright blue eyes, and a dark brown stripe behind each eye. The fur around its thighs is longer and each paw has three toes. There is a tuft of longer fur on the tip of its tail. A male Pyroar has a large, predominantly red mane with gold streaks forming pattern resembling the Daimonji symbol (大) and the symbol for fire (火). In contrast, a female has a long, gold and red crest-like mane extending from its forehead. The female's mane is as long as its whole body, and the light brown on its front legs extends all the way to its shoulders. The light brown fur on the male's front legs only extends up to its elbows.

Pyroar lives in prides, which are led by the male with the largest mane. The pride's females protect the cubs. A male Pyroar is usually lazy, but will protect its friends at the risk of its own well-being. Pyroar viciously threatens any challenger with a fiery breath exceeding 10,000 degrees Fahrenheit (6,000 degrees Celsius). However, it prefers its meat raw and does not use its breath on its prey. In the past, Noble Roar was its signature move.

Major appearances

Lysandre's Pyroar

A male Pyroar debuted in Mega Evolution Special II, under the ownership of Lysandre. He made further appearances in the rest of the Mega Evolution Specials, and later in the main series episodes From A to Z! and Coming Apart at the Dreams!, with the former marking the species' main series debut. He was mostly seen outside of its Poké Ball.

Other

Four Pyroar appeared in A Fiery Rite of Passage!, with three of them being female and one being male; this marked the debut of Pyroar's female form. The male Pyroar forced a one of Litleo to leave their pride to become more independent, but kept an eye on it. It eventually allowed Litleo to find its independence and live outside the pride.

A female Pyroar appeared in Battling With a Clean Slate!, under the ownership of Alvin. She battled against Clembot, who used Magneton, and lost.

Minor appearances

A male Pyroar debuted in Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction, under the ownership of Astrid. He was the first Pokémon she used in her battle against Ash, and he lost to Pikachu's Electro Ball.

Trivia

Origin

Pyroar is based on a lion. The style of its fur, in particular the spiked areas on its limbs and tail, is more than likely a reference to stylized lions in heraldry and coat of arms while the male's mane resembles escutcheons which would bear heraldic lions. The yellow pattern on the mane of a male Pyroar is similar in shape to the Daimonji, a bonfire lit during the Japanese festival Gozan no Okuribi in the shape of the symbol 大 (meaning great or large). The shape also resembles the kanji for fire (火), as written in certain (often calligraphic) styles. Its gender ratio also resembles lion prides, which consist of one primary male lion, several females, and one or two lesser males.

Name origin

Pyroar may be a combination of pyr- and roar.

Kaenjishi is a combination of 火炎 kaen (flame) and 獅子 shishi (lion).
