Pignite was first seen on September 1st 2010, when an image containing all of the evolutions of the starter Pokιmon was shown on a Japanese forum. It was officially revealed on the October issue of Coro Coro on September 11, 2010. It was the only second evolution of a Generation V starter Pokémon not seen on the beta art of the Best Wishes series.
Pignite (and its evolution) have broken the fact that Arm Thrust was Makuhita and Hariyama's signature move (learning it at level 17).
Pignite's english name is a combination of the words "pig" and "ignite."
'Pignite' was also a fan-made moniker for its pre-evolution Tepig, known as Pokabu at the time.
