'''Ash's Infernape''' is a {{type|fire}}/{{type|fighting}}-[[type]] [[Pokémon (species)|Pokémon]] owned by [[Ash]]. It was originally [[Paul]]'s Pokémon as a [[Chimchar]], but after he was released by Paul, he proved to be a very strong [[Pokémon]], winning [[Ash]] many key battles.

As a [[Chimchar]], Infernape was discovered by Paul whilst trying to escape a pack of [[Zangoose]]. When it was cornered on the edge of a cliff, Chimchar used Flame Wheel and defeated all the Zangoose. Paul was impressed and decided to catch him.
As a [[Chimchar]], Infernape was discovered by Paul whilst trying to escape a pack of [[Zangoose]]. When it was trapped on the edge of a cliff, Chimchar used Flame Wheel and defeated all the Zangoose with a single attack. Paul was impressed and decided to catch it.
 
   
However, Paul grew disappointed because Chimchar never displayed that kind of power whilst it was training with him. Although Chimchar helped Paul win many battles, including his gym battle with [[Roark]], Paul still considered it weak and when Chimchar defended [[Ash's Torterra|Ash's Turtwig]] from a [[Fire Blast]] in Glory Blaze, Paul had had enough. Deciding that Chimchar was too soft to use the kind of power he'd seen when it battled the Zangoose, Paul released it and Ash invited it to join him instead.

After joining Ash's team, Chimchar overcame its fear of Zangoose and was used in many battles. Chimchar weakened [[Maylene's Meditite]] and [[Maylene's Lucario|Lucario]] and defeated [[Fantina's Drifblim]] and [[Fantina's Mismagius|Mismagius]] as well as [[Byron's Steelix]] and [[Byron's Bronzor|Bronzor]] and [[Candice's Abomasnow]]. Chimchar finally evolved into Monferno during Ash's first full battle with Paul after defeating [[Paul's Ursaring]] for the third time. Despite evolving Monferno was defeated by [[Paul's Electivire|Electabuzz]]. After being knocked to the brink of fainting in a battle against [[Barry's Empoleon]], Monferno went berserk with its [[Blaze]] ability and unleashed its full power against [[Team Rocket]]. While protecting the [[Pokémon]], it evolved into Infernape. Infernape has many powerful attacks at its disposal such as [[Flame Wheel]] so it's set to be the powerhouse behind Ash's team. It was later used in a battle against [[Flint's Infernape]], but lost due to its lack of experience. Like [[Paul's Torterra]] this was its only defeat since it evolved from Monferno and it has won very other battle it was in.

Infernape had a major role in Ash's final gym battle on [[Sunyshore Gym]] where it easily defeated [[Volkner]]'s [[Jolteon]] and used [[Blaze]] to finally control it and defeat his [[Luxray]] with a powerful [[Flame Wheel]].

Chimchar evolved into Monferno during Ash's first full battle with Paul after defeating [[Paul's Ursaring]] for the third time.

Infernape was later used in a battle against [[Flint's Infernape]], but lost due to his lack of experience compared to Flint's Infernape. This was Infernape's only defeat since it evolved, and he has won every other battle it was in.
Ash's Infernape learned Flare Blitz in Familiarity Breeds Strategy, knocking out [[Brock's Sudowoodo]]. It later faced off against Paul's newly evolved [[Aggron]] with [[Flare Blitz]] which burns it and proceeded to deliver a [[Mach Punch]] defeating the powerful [[Aggron]]. It later battled [[Paul's Ninjask]]. Infernape used [[Dig]] and used its Flare Blitz underground which made the field burst out Infernape's flames which damaged [[Ninjask]] and canceled [[Paul's Drapion]]'s [[Toxic Spikes]] effect and mist surrounded the field which made Infernape attack Ninjask by a single [[Mach Punch]]. Infernape battled [[Paul's Electivire]] in the final battle between [[Ash]] and [[Paul]]. Electivire used [[Thunder]] and slammed its tail to the ground which made the rocks fly towards Infernape. The so-called "Field Thunder" was done because of Infernape weakening the stability of the field when it used "Underground Flare Blitz". After a good battling, Infernape used Mach Punch. However, Electivire's tail caught Infernape's arm, constricting him. Electivire then proceeded to use Thunder for a long period of time. After Electivire let him out, the referee announced Infernape unable to battle, but Electivire prevented him from doing so. Suddenly, Infernape began to glow and activated its Blaze and fired a super-powerful blast of Flamethrower which not even Electivire's Thunder could penetrate. Infernape then attacked with a powerful Flare Blitz. Thanks to the Blaze-powered Flare Blitz, Electivire was burnt, gave way and stumbled to the ground, declared unable to battle, with Ash winning the full battle against his long-time Sinnoh rival Paul and ending their rivalry. In [[DP190]] it helped make the ship hot to heal several Baby Pokémon.

Infernape, as a Chimchar, was usually a very sweet and kind Pokémon, until Blaze was activated and it went on a rampage until it could be stopped by Ash.

Ash's Infernape is a fire/fighting-type Pokémon owned by Ash. It was originally Paul's Pokémon as a Chimchar, but after he was released by Paul, he proved to be a very strong Pokémon, winning Ash many key battles.

BiographyEdit

As a Chimchar, Infernape was discovered by Paul whilst trying to escape a pack of Zangoose. When it was cornered on the edge of a cliff, Chimchar used Flame Wheel and defeated all the Zangoose. Paul was impressed and decided to catch him.

However, Paul grew disappointed because Chimchar never displayed that kind of power whilst he was training with him. Although Chimchar helped Paul win many battles, including his gym battle with Roark, Paul still considered Chimchar weak and when he defended Ash's Turtwig from a Fire Blast in Glory Blaze, Paul had had enough. Deciding that Chimchar was too soft to use the kind of power he'd seen when it battled the Zangoose, Paul released Chimchar from his team for good and Ash invited him to join his team which Chimchar happily accepted.

After joining Ash's team, Chimchar overcame its fear of Zangoose and was used in many battles. Chimchar weakened Maylene's Meditite and Lucario, defeated Fantina's Drifblim and MismagiusByron's Steelix and Bronzor and Candice's Abomasnow.

Chimchar evolved into Monferno during Ash's first full battle with Paul after defeating Paul's Ursaring for the third time. Despite evolving, Monferno was defeated by Electabuzz. Later on in the series, after being knocked to the brink of fainting in a battle against Barry's Empoleon, Monferno went berserk with his Blaze ability and unleashed his full power against Team Rocket. While protecting the Pokémon, Monferno evolved into Infernape.

Infernape was later used in a battle against Flint's Infernape, but lost due to his lack of experience compared to Flint's Infernape. This was Infernape's only defeat since it evolved, and he has won every other battle it was in.

Infernape had a major role in Ash's gym battle in Sunyshore Gym where he easily defeated Volkner's Jolteon and used and fully controlled Blaze to defeat Volkner's Luxray with a powerful Flame Wheel.

Infernape, as a Chimchar, was usually a very sweet and kind Pokémon, until Blaze was activated and it went on a rampage until it could be stopped by Ash. Every time Chimchar saw Paul, it would get really fired up and determined to defeat him in battle. Chimchar never gives up in battle, which is a trait that it carried with it as it evolved into Monferno, and then into Infernape.

Infernape is quite the feisty Pokémon and, in its current stage, is always looking for someone to battle and some new way to boost its skills. Its personality almost completely matches Ash, which is why these two are a perfect match for one another. It still retains some of its childlike personality from when it was a Chimchar, and, like when it was a Chimchar, always takes any advice and motivation it recieves, even from its enemies, such as Meowth.
