===Physiology===
+
Tepig is a small quadrupedal mammalian Pokémon that resembles a piglet. Its plump body is mainly a bright fiery orange color. Its ears, forehead, backside, tail, and the tips of its front feet are black. It has long ears, large eyes with black pupils, and a distinctly pig-like pink nose with two large nostrils. It has a short yellow stripe extending vertically across the front of its face, just above its nose. It has a short curly tail with a round red orb at the tip; the orb at the tip of Tepig's tail glows when it uses its Fire-type attacks. It shoots fire from its nostrils, and when it is unhealthy the fire it exhales from its nose becomes black smoke.

==Trivia==
 
==Trivia==
*Tepig's body design is most likely based off of a baby Japanese wild boar.
 
*Tepig's Japanese name is derived from ぽかぽか ''pokapoka'', warmth circulating through one's body, combined with 豚 ''buta'', pig; or ブー ''bū'', "oink". Its English name comes from "'''tepi'''d" and "'''pig'''".
 
 
*Tepig is the third starter Pokémon to be a mammalian, with the first two being [[Cyndaquil]] and [[Chimchar]]. It is also the third {{Type|Fire}}-type Pokémon to be mammalian, continuing the trail, though it is broken by the {{Type|Water}}-typed Otter Pokémon [[Oshawott]], both in the same region.

*A silhouette of Tepig, [[Snivy]], and [[Oshawott]] was released on May 9, 2010 during an episode of Pokémon Sunday. An actual photo of the three starters was shown in an issue of Cocoro magazine on May 12. It was shown again on November 22 for the official English names.

Tepig (Japanese: ポカブ Pokabu) is a Generation V Fire-type Starter Pokémon, along with Oshawott and Snivy. It is classified as the Fire Pig Pokémon. It has the ability Blaze, like previous Fire-type starters. Tepig can learn all three moves that were introduced in Generation V: Flame Charge, Fire Pledge and Heat Crash.

BiologyEdit

PhysiologyEdit

Tepig is a small quadrupedal mammalian Pokémon that resembles a piglet. Its plump body is mainly a bright fiery orange color. Its ears, forehead, backside, tail, and the tips of its front feet are black. It has long ears, large eyes with black pupils, and a distinctly pig-like pink nose with two large nostrils. It has a short yellow stripe extending vertically across the front of its face, just above its nose. It has a short curly tail with a round red orb at the tip; the orb at the tip of Tepig's tail glows when it uses its Fire-type attacks. It shoots fire from its nostrils, and when it is unhealthy the fire it exhales from its nose becomes black smoke.

EvolutionEdit

Tepig evolves into Pignite, a Fire/Fighting-type, at level 17. Pignite evolves into Emboar at level 36.

TriviaEdit

  • Tepig is the third starter Pokémon to be a mammalian, with the first two being Cyndaquil and Chimchar. It is also the third Fire-type Pokémon to be mammalian, continuing the trail, though it is broken by the Water-typed Otter Pokémon Oshawott, both in the same region.
  • A silhouette of Tepig, Snivy, and Oshawott was released on May 9, 2010 during an episode of Pokémon Sunday. An actual photo of the three starters was shown in an issue of CoroCoro magazine on May 12. It was shown again on November 22 for the official English names.
  • Tepig is the only Unova region starter to be a quadruped, being that Oshawott and Snivy both walk on two legs. When it evolves into Pignite and Emboar, it walks around on two legs as well.
  • Tepig is the only Unova Starter to gain a second type as it evolves.
  • Tepig is one of the playable characters in PokéPark 2: Wonders Beyond, where he wishes to participate in the Battle Tournament. He seeks to prove that he can be as brave and strong as his mentor, Emboar.

OriginEdit

Tepig's body design is most likely based on a baby Japanese wild boar.

EtymologyEdit

Tepig's English name is derived from the word "tepid" (meaning slightly warm) and "pig".

Names in other languagesEdit

Tepig's Japanese name (Pokabu) is derived from ぽかぽか pokapoka, warmth circulating through one's body, combined with 豚 buta, pig; or ブー , "oink".
