Appearances

Anime

Main articles: Bianca's Emboar, Shamus' Emboar, Nate's Emboar, and Tatsuki's Emboar

Emboar first appeared in anime when Bianca's Pignite evolved into Emboar. It later appeared with Shamus, the original trainer of Ash's Tepig.

Other

Emboar appears in PokéPark 2: Wonders Beyond, where he's the keeper of the Crag Area and is in charge of the Battle Tournament. He is also a mentor for Tepig, since it is revealed that he started out just like Tepig.

Trivia

  • Like all other fully evolved Fire-type Starter Pokémon, Emboar has flames protruding from its body somewhere; in its case, its neck.
  • Of the three Unova starters, Emboar has the highest HP and Attack stats, but the lowest defense, Special Defense, and Speed stats.
  • Emboar is the only Fire-type Pokémon that is able to learn a damaging Water-type move, Scald.
  • Despite the Pokédex entry stating it can "throw a fire punch by setting its fists on fire with its fiery chin", it couldn't learn Fire Punch until Pokémon Black 2 and White 2.
  • Emboar is the only fully evolved Unova starter Pokémon to have two types.
  • Emboar is the heaviest Fire-type fully evolved starter Pokémon.
  • Despite being fatter than either of its pre-evolutions, its Hidden Ability is Reckless rather than Thick Fat.
  • It is the third and currently last Fire/Fighting-type starter Pokémon, the others being Blaziken and Infernape.

Origin

Emboar is based on a wild boar with elements of sumo wrestlers and ancient Chinese pottery. With its Chinese inspiration in mind, it may also be based on Zhu Bajie, a pig demon in the Chinese tale Journey to the West. As the Unova starters are based on historical empires, Emboar is based on the Chinese Empire.

Etymology

Emboar comes from ember and boar. It may also include emperor.

Its Japanese name, Enbuō, may come from 炎 (en, flame), emperor, the Japanese 豚 buta (pig), ブー , (oink), or デブ debu or 太い butoi (both meaning "fat"), and 王 (ō, king), or 大 (ō, big).

Names in other languages

  • French: Roitiflam
  • Spanish and Italian: Emboar
  • German: Flambirex
  • Korean: 염무왕 Yeommuwang
