Biology

Physiology

Pignite is a bipedal pig-like Pokémon that appears to be wearing black spandex tights, similar to a wrestler. Its body is chubby and ovular in shape, and mainly a fiery orange hue. It has brown bands encircling its shoulders, sides, belly, hands, and from the back of its head down its snout. It has yellow bands around its wrists, and twisted yellow shapes on its chest. It has two large and brown floppy ears extending from its head and a small, twisted black tail. It has two sharp claws on its hands and one sharp claw on each foot. It has a large pig-like red nose, and two sharp teeth that protrude from its lower jaw.

Special Abilities

Pignite has a blazing fire in its stomach, which it fuels with the food it consumes. As the flame inside its belly grows, Pignite becomes faster. When in trouble, Pignite emits smoke.
