AppearancesEdit

In the animeEdit

Proprietor's Houndoom
Main article: Harrison's Houndoom


Houndoom first appeared in "Houndoom's Special Delivery" where it took care of Misty's Togepi.

TriviaEdit

  • No other Pokémon share the same type combination as Houndoom and its pre-evolution Houndour.
  • Despite having a pair of horns, it cannot learn Horn Attack or Horn Drill. This might be due to the fact that the horns curve back, making it difficult to stab with the points of the horns.
