Hitmonlee (Japanese: サワムラー Sawamurā) is a Fighting-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

Biology

Physiology

Hitmonlee is a Kicking Pokémon. It is brown in color with tape markings wrapped around its forearms and legs. While it looks like it has tape wrapped around its legs, the tape is actually its legs coiled like a spring which stretch to increase the distance of its kicks.

Natural abilities

Hitmonlee can have one of two abilities, Limber or Reckless. Limber is an ability that will prevent Hitmonlee from becoming paralyzed while Reckless increases the attack power of moves with recoil damage.

Evolution

Hitmonlee evolves from Tyrogue at level 20 if its Attack is higher than its Defense.
