Infernape (Japanese: ゴウカザル, HepburnGoukazaru) (in-FER-nape[1]) is the Fire/Fighting-type First partner Pokémon of the Sinnoh region, evolved from Monferno and Chimchar.

Biology[]

Physiology[]

Infernape is based upon a monkey, rather than an ape as cleared from its name. Its body color is brown and it has flame over its head. A brown tail is also present. Its fist resembles the man's fist having power to use fighting type moves. It has several gold plates that cover its body on its shoulders, wrists, knees, and chest. Infernape's arms, legs, and tail are a dark brown color while its upper body, forelegs, and head are white. It is the fastest starter of the Sinnoh starters last evolutions. It has brown ears but inside its blue. Its feet are white but the toes are blue.

Behavior[]

Infernape seems to be very energetic Pokémon as seen in anime. It never gives up. It is very loyal to its trainer and tries harder to win. They use their great agility to toss foes around while pummeling them from all angles. They are capable of cloaking their limbs in flames to scorch foes with physical attacks. The crowns of fire on their heads burn more intensely as they become more heated in battle. These flames cannot be extinguished and are said to represent their undying, fiery spirits in combat. Outside of battle, Infernape retain the playful demeanors of their pre-evolutions. They will quickly assume more somber personas, however, when threatened, as their battling spirits overtake their bodies.

Natural abilities[]

Infernape gets Blaze when its HP gets lower than 1/3 which, increase its attack. It also has Iron Fist.

Evolution[]

Infernape is the evolved form of Monferno as of level 36. It is also the final Evolution of Chimchar.

    Appearances[]

    Anime[]

    Ash Infernape

    Ash's Infernape.

    Infernape first made an appearance in the Pokémon movie The Rise of Darkrai. Ash's Monferno evolved into an Infernape in Fighting Ire With Fire! of the Pokémon Diamond and Pearl anime.

    Manga[]

    In the Pokémon Adventures Manga, Pearl owns an Infernape, named Chimler.

    Trivia[]

    • Infernape shares the same species as Charmeleon, Charizard, Flareon and Moltres, known as Flame Pokémon.
    • Infernape, along with Chimchar and Monferno, are the first monkey-like Pokémon to be of a type, being primarily Fire Type, other than Fighting and Normal.
    • Infernape is the shortest of all the final form starter Pokémon, with 3 ft. 11 in.
    • Infernape is the only fully evolved Sinnoh Starter not to:
      • have a unique type combination, as Torterra is grass/Ground type, while Empoleon is a Water/steel type. It shares its type with Blaziken and Emboar.
      • It is also the only fully evolved Sinnoh starter not to be immune to Sandstorm, as Torterra is part ground, while Empoleon is part steel.
      • It is also the only fully evolved Sinnoh starter not to have an immunity, as Torterra is immune to electric attacks, while Empoleon is immune to poison attacks.
    • Despite it having the word "ape" in its name, it has a tail as opposed to real apes, who do not.
    • Despite what its HeartGold and SoulSilver entry implies, Infernape cannot learn Agility.

    Origin[]

    Infernape is based on a monkey, but also appears to be based on Son Gokū, which is evidenced by its Japanese name. Son Gokū is the Japanese interpretation of Sun Wukong, a monkey with magical abilities in the Chinese story "Journey to the West". Its pose in its 3D models and its fighting type may be based on Monkey Kung Fu, a fighting style based around monkey-like movements.

    Etymology[]

    Infernape comes from inferno and ape.

    Its Japanese name Goukazaru (ゴウカザル) comes from Son Gokū (see Origin), saru (monkey), and goka (inferno).

    Names in other languages[]

    • English, Italian and Spanish: Infernape
    • French: : Simiabraz
    • German: : Panfer
    • Chinese:: 烈焰猴
    • Korean:: 초염몽
