Trivia

  • In the Pokémon Gold and Silver Version's demo, Houndour originally had a different bone structure, was pure Fire type, evolve at level 35 instead of 24, and was named "Debiru" rather than Derubiru in Japanese.

Origin

Houndour is mostly based off of the infamous hellhound. Its markings resemble the ones of a Doberman Pinscher. It may also be based on the Tasmanian devil with some of the thylacine's elements, or a Doberman Pinscher puppy.

Etymology

Houndour is a mix of "hound" and "dour" (which means severe). It might also come from "sour", seeing how it has a menacing nature.
