Trivia

  • Despite its species being "Legendary Pokémon", it is not a Legendary Pokémon.
    • Originally, Arcanine was going to be a Legendary Pokémon but the idea was scrapped when it was given a pre-evolution.
    • This is also shown in the second episode of the anime where Arcanine is should on a plaque containing the legendary birds Articuno, Zapdos & Moltres.
  • Arcanine's prototype name was "Blaze."
  • The Yellow Pokédex entry states that Arcanine is seen in China, showing that there are similarities in regions with the real world and Pokémon world. China is also referenced in one of Parasect's Pokedex entries.

Origins

Due to being a canine with a slightly lion-like appearance, Arcanine is likely based on the Shisa, a traditional Ryukyuan decoration from Okinawa mythology that resembles a cross between a lion and a dog. It's stripes and overall coloration are based off tigers.

Etymology

Arcanine's English name comes from a combination of the words "Arcane" meaning ancient and mysterious, and "Canine".
