Houndour (Japaneseデルビル Delvil) is a dual-type Dark/Fire Pokémon introduced in Generation II.

It evolves into Houndoom starting at level 24.

Biology

Houndour is a quadruped, canine Pokémon with short, black fur and a red underbelly and muzzle. Its ears and tail are both short and pointed. Two fangs protrude from its upper jaw, and its triangular nose is black. There are white bands on its ankles, and rib-like ridges on its back. Houndour appears to have a simplistic, stylized skull on its forehead with the eye orbits composing eyebrow patterning above its actual eyes. It also has circular, red paw pads on each of its three-toed paws.

Houndour is an intelligent Pokémon that forms packs to hunt for prey, and shows unparalleled teamwork. As seen in the anime, it will not abandon a sick pack member. It communicates using various barks and howls. Barks are used to determine the location of a pack member during a hunt, while howls are used as declaration of ownership over a territory. Houndour can typically be found around rough terrain.
