Pyroar (カエンジシ Kaenjishi) is a Fire/Normal Pokémon introduced in Generation VI.

Biology

Physiology

Pyroar is a distinctly lion-like Pokémon. It has a tan-colored face, a blunt leonine muzzle, intense blue eyes, a black triangular nose, and rounded ears. Its large, powerful body is covered in brown and tan-colored fur. It has bulky tan-colored paws and feet with three visible toes on each; when angered or attacking, Pyroar unsheathes its sharp retractable claws. The male Pyroar has a magnificent bushy mane of blazing red and yellow flames encircling his head. The female Pyroar lacks the mane, and instead has a long tuft of red and yellow flaming fur atop her head. Pyroar's fiery mane is very hot to the touch, and glows brightly when it attacks. It has a long, slender brown tail with a bushy tan-colored tip. The male Pyroar's ears are concealed by its large mane, but the female's ears can be seen 

Gender differences

The male Pyroar has a great fiery red and yellow mane encircling his head, while female Pyroar has a long flare-like tuft of flaming fur of the same color atop her head. The male Pyroar is generally more bulky and muscular in body-shape, while the female is more slender and sleek. 

Behavior

Pyroar are fierce and aggressive Pokémon in the wild. The leader of a pride of Pyroar is always the male with the largest mane of fire. Female Pyroar protect the pride's Litleo cubs. Pyroar are capable of breathing flames of more than 10,000 degrees Fahrenheit, and will viciously threaten any opponent.

Evolution

Pyroar can be evolved from Litleo at level 35.

Trivia

  • Pyroar, along with its pre-evolution, are the only Pokémon with fire/normal unique type matchup.
  • No other Pokémon has the same gender ratio as Pyroar (1 male - 7 females).

Origin

Pyroar is based on a lion. The yellow marks on the male's mane resemble a Daimonji (大), a fire lit during Japanese festivals or it could resemble a Kanji for fire (火). Its gender ratio could reference how lion prides are set up, usually consisting of one to two male and mostly other females.

Etymology

Pyroar's name comes from pyro (fire) and roar (the sound big cats (such as lions) make).
