Chimchar (Japanese???? Hikozaru) is a Fire-type Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

It evolves into Monferno starting at level 14, which evolves into Infernape starting at level 36.

Along with Turtwig and Piplup, Chimchar is one of three starter Pokémon of Sinnoh available at the beginning of Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum.

Biology

 
 
A sleeping Chimchar - note the lack of a flame

Chimchar is a bipedal Pokémon resembling a chimpanzee. Its fur is primarily a shade of orange, though its face, outer ears, underbelly, hands, and feet are light yellow. Its rear has a small, round, red patch that is usually obscured by flames produced by burning gas in its stomach. These flames go out when it goes to sleep, and burn weakly when it feels ill. Its ears are large in comparison to its head size and red inside. It has two pointed teeth in its upper jaw. Chimchar has red markings nearly surrounding its eyes, a swirl-like symbol on its chest, and five fingers on its hands with three toes on its feet. It has a swirly crest of hair on its head. Being very agile, it is able to climb the rocky ledges of tall mountains, where it lives.

Trivia

Origin

Chimchar appears to be based on a young chimpanzee. However, the markings on its rear without the flame, (plus facial markings on its evolutions) seem to indicate that it is more a cross between a chimpanzee and a young baboon.

Name origin

Chimchar is a combination of chimp and charcoal or char (to burn).

Hikozaru is a combination of ? hi (fire), ? ko (child), and ? saru (monkey). Zaru is also used to describe an ape.
