10. Hitmontop

Hitmontop has a sharp point on the top of its head which allows it to balance itself upside-down on its head, the position which it holds in much of the time while it is observed. While it can walk upright, it often travels by spinning like a top, letting it travel much faster. Using the centrifugal force to boost its attack by ten times, it launches elegant kicks while spinning.

This allows it to throw off its opponent’s timing, and give it a good mix of offense and defense. If it spins fast enough, it can dig into the ground. Any punch or hand based moves breed into or learned by a Tyrogue will carry into either of its evolved forms . This means that even a Hitmontop can know a move like Mach Punch or High Jump Kick. Its Japanese name is most likely a variation of the Brazilian/African fighting style capoeira.


9. Hitmonlee

Hitmonlee and Hitmonchan, known as Sawamular in Japan, are two Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak’s Pokémon franchise. It was originally conceived by Game Freak’s character development team and finalized by Ken Sugimori. The Japanese names are derived from the names of Japanese fighters Tadashi Sawamura and Hiroyuki Ebihara respectively, while the English names are derived from the names of martial artists Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan.


8. Toxicroak

Toxicroak, like Croagunk, is based on the poison dart frog. Toxicroak has knuckle talons and, instead of cheek pouches, a large vocal sac. Venom is produced in this sac, and is churned for extra potency when Toxicroak croaks. This strong toxin is pumped into its claws through tubes in its arms. Toxicroak has large leg and arm muscles, necessary for jumping and punching. Commander Saturn of Team Galactic owns a Toxicroak. These Pokémon prey on Drapion, and vice versa.


7. Machamp

Machamp is very similar in appearance to Machoke, except that Machamp has four arms instead of two. Machamp use the extra arms to deliver thousands of punches a minute, and can even execute moves so amazing they can knock the opponent over the horizon. Machamp are never encountered in the wild, although the previous evolution are frequently encountered at a wide variety of levels. Machamp can only be obtained by trading a Machoke to another copy of the game.


6. Gallade

Gallade, known as the Blade Pokémon, was first introduced in the Pokémon Diamond and Pearl series as new evolved form of Kirlia and Ralts. It is a Psychic/Fighting type, and a counterpart to the previously existing Gardevoir. Possibly because Gardevoir is a very feminine-looking Pokémon, male Kirlia are given an opportunity to evolve into a more masculine Pokémon. When a male Kirlia is exposed to a Dawn Stone, it will evolve into a Gallade.  

The name is a portmanteau of words “gallant” and “blade”. It retains the same green, white, and pink color scheme as the others in its family. The crest on its head is reminiscent of the helmet of a hoplite. Sharp, green, spear-like blades extend from Gallade’s elbows, which Gallade uses skillfully and powerfully in battle. These blades can be retracted into Gallade’s elbows when not in combat, possibly so that it does not somehow manage to hurt those it is close to. Being a Psychic-type, it also has the ability to read its opponent’s mind, giving it the upper hand in battle.

5. Monferno        

Monferno, Moukazaru in original Japanese language versions, is the evolution of Chimchar. Much of Monferno’s hair is a bright orange color. It has blue and red markings on its face and has white hair around its neck and gold arm bands, It most likely resembles a Baboon. Monferno now has an evident tail, unlike its previous form. Its tail is similar to that of Charmander who has a flame at the tip. Monferno’s flame is often used as a weapon.

When threatened, it increases the size of its flame in order to appear larger than it really is, which is useful in scaring off attacking foes. It skillfully controls the intensity of the fire on its tail to keep its foes at an ideal distance. Monferno can climb onto walls to shoot aerial attacks. A bigger fire on its tail and a brighter blue pattern on its face means its rank in its pack is higher.


4. Primeape

Primeape is a larger and stronger evolution of Mankey. Vicious and frenzied, even making eye contact will anger it. Once it starts to thrash about, it will never stop chasing its offender. Its frenzies are most dangerous when forcefully woken up, as it relentlessly chases the quarry while half-asleep. Primeape can be obtained when a Mankey reaches level 28 and evolves. Primeape can also be found in some grassy areas in Kanto and Johto. Primeape is incredibly fast and very skilled in any form of combat.   

It is caught by Ash Ketchum after evolving from a mischievous Mankey. He later gives it to a boxer to be raised into the best fighter it can be. It has never been referred to or used by Ash since.  Its name is a combination of the words “prime” and “ape,” suggesting that this Pokémon and its pre-evolution, Mankey, organize themselves in a social hierarchy similar to monkeys. Its name also resembles the word primate, which is used to describe any animal in the man/monkey/ape family.


3. Lucario

Lucario is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak’s Pokémon franchise. Created by Ken Sugimori, Lucario first appeared as a central character in the film Pokémon: Lucario and the Mystery of Mew, and later appeared in the video games Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, also appearing in various merchandise, spinoff titles and animated and printed adaptations of the franchise. Lucario is voiced by Daisuke Namikawa in Japanese, and Bill Rogers in English.  

Known as the Aura Pokémon it can track energy called Aura, which is given off by all living creatures. Lucario is also featured as a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. IGN called its presence in Super Smash Bros. Brawl “a bit on the head scratching side”, although another editor stated that it would make sense for Pokémon to be represented by a fighting-type Pokémon.


2. Blaziken

Blaziken, known as the Blaze Pokémon, evolves from Combusken at level 36, and is the final form of Torchic. Blaziken appears as if it’s wearing a sleeveless jacket on its torso. It has a crest on its head with two points, which resembles a letter “V”. It also has long hair behind its head and a small face almost completely covered in feathers.

Its strong, muscular legs help it jump up a skyscraper with one kick and with ease. It can make flames spout from its wrists and ankles, cloaking its feet or fists. It may also launch a fiery kick at the opponent. A female has shorter “hair” than a male. The V-shape on a female’s “mask” is also smaller. Every several years, its old feathers burn off, and new, supple feathers grow back in their place. Its signature move up to Generation III is Blaze Kick.


1. Infernape

Infernape, Goukazaru in original Japanese language versions, is the final evolution of the Chimchar evolutionary line. Its body is a brownish-red color and a large flame burns on its head. Its crown of fire is indicative of its fiery nature and never goes out, unlike its pre-evolutions Chimchar and Monferno. The tail flame it had as its pre-evolutions has disappeared. Infernape now wears a gold chest ring in place of a chest plate. Its hands, feet, and inner ears are all blue.

It also has gold shoulder pads, knee pads, and wrist bands. The blue and red markings it had on its forehead as a Monferno have now changed to a deep blood-red color. Infernape uses a special kind of martial arts that utilizes all four of its limbs. It uses them to pull off special combat moves. It is most competitive when it comes to speed. It tosses its enemies around with agility. It uses all its limbs to fight in its own unique style.
