Chimchar (Japanese: ヒコザル Hikozaru) is the Fire-type Starter Pokémon of the Sinnoh region.

Biology

Physiology

Chimchar has a light colored stomach with a little swirl at the top on its chest. The swirl on Chimcar's chest carries over to Monferno and Infernape. It has a tail with a burning flame, although the tail burns weaker when Chimchar is feeling under the weather.

Behavior

A Chimchar's flame is produced by burning gas in its stomach. The flames do not go out in the rain like the flames on a Charmander's tail, but Chimchar's flame goes out when they go to sleep. Like regular monkeys, Chimchar is able to climb the rocky ledges of tall mountains, where it lives. Although very mischievous and highly curious, Chimchar can show courage at troubled times.

Habitat

Chimchar are very rare and only make their nests in cliff sides and rocky mountains.

Evolution

Chimchar evolves into Monferno once it reaches level 14 and into Infernape at level 36.
