Trivia

  • Infernape shares the same species as Charmeleon, Charizard, Flareon and Moltres, known as Flame Pokémon.
  • Infernape, along with Chimchar and Monferno, are the first monkey-like Pokémon to be of a type, being primarily Fire Type, other than Fighting and Normal.
  • Infernape is the shortest of all the final form starter Pokémon, with 3 ft. 11 in.
  • Infernape is loosely based on the character Son Gokū (hence its Japanese name "Goukazaru"), the "Monkey King"
  • Infernape is the only fully evolved Sinnoh Starter not to have a unique type combination, as Torterra is Grass/Ground type, while Empoleon is Water/Steel type. It shares its type with Blaziken and Emboar. It is also the only fully evolved Sinnoh starter not to be immune to Sandstorm, as Torterra is part Ground, while Empoleon is part Steel. It is also the only fully evolved Sinnoh starter not to have an immunity, as Torterra is immune to Electric attacks, while Empoleon is immune to Poison attacks.
  • Despite its HeartGold and SoulSilver entry implies, Infernape cannot learn Agility.

Etymology

Infernape received its name from the words "Inferno" which means fire and "Ape" which means tailless monkey even though Infernape has one. Its Japanese name Goukazaru (ゴウカザル) is reference to the Japanese name of Sun Wukong, the Monkey King (whom this Pokémon is based on) from "Journey To The West", Son Gokū.
