Trivia

  • The reason Hitmontop only evolves if its Attack and Defense are equal is because a top will only stay spinning if it's balanced. As one can also see in the anime, Hitmontop's battling style constantly shifts from defense to offense.
  • He is the only evolution of Tyrogue (excluding Tyrogue itself) whose name does not derive from that of a real martial artist.

Origin

Hitmontop is likely based on a spinning top, breakdancer, and a capoeira practitioner.

Etymology

Hitmontop comes from hit, monster, and top.

Kapoerā comes from capoeira, one of his inspirations.
