Anime

Trivia

  • The reason Hitmontop needs to have his base Attack and Defense the same is due to the fact that because his is a "Top"-like Pokémon, he needs to have balance. As you can also see in the anime, Hitmontop's battling style constantly shifts from defense to offense.
  • He is the only evolution of Tyrogue (excluding Tyrogue himself) that is not based on a real person.
