Chimchar (Japanese: ヒコザル Hikozaru) is the Fire-type Starter Pokémon of the Sinnoh region.

Biology

Chimchar are based on monkeys. Being very agile, Chimchar are able to climb the rocky ledges of tall mountains, where they live. A Chimchar's flame is produced by burning gas in its stomach. Chimchar have a light colored stomach with a little swirl at the top on its chest. The swirl on Chimchar's chest carries over to Monferno and Infernape. The flames do not go out in the rain like the flames on a Charmander's tail, but Chimchar's flame goes out when they go to sleep, although, the tail burns weaker when Chimchar is feeling under the weather. Like regular monkeys, Chimchar are very mischievous, but can show courage at times. Chimchar are very rare and only make their nests in cliffsides and rocky mountains.

Evolution

Chimchar evolves into Monferno once it reaches level 14 and into Infernape at level 36.
