Trivia

  • Houndour and its evolved form are the only Pokémon of their type combination, Dark/Fire.
    • Incineroar has the same types, but in reverse order, Fire/Dark.

Etymology

Houndour is a mix of hound and dour (severe). It might also come from sour (seeing how it has a mean nature).

Origin

Houndour is mostly based off of a hellhound. It also shares some similarities to the Cerberus from Greek mythology.
