Origin

Ampharos is based on a sheep lacking fur. Its name comes from amp is a measure of electrical current. Pharos is the Greek word for lighthouse and its Japanese name comes from 電気 (electricity) and (dragon), written in kanji as 電竜 (electric dragon) or 電流 (electric current).

Its Mega Evolution is based off the bighorn sheep or the ram, due to its long curled horns and long wooly mane. It also may be based off the mythical Chinese beast of the Chaofeng, described as one of the Nine Sons of the Dragon God. It is said to be the cross between a sheep and a dragon, with a thin neck, a bushy tail, lion like body, and two horns on its head, and its personality was described as adventurous, risktaking, and inquisitive. Due to its love of heights and adventure, the dragon assigned Chaofeng the duty of decorating the four corners of houses as a ward against evil spirits and disaster.
