Biology

The upper portion of its head is dark brown, and its long, pointed ears are positioned closely together. Tepig has short legs, and its front feet are dark brown. A dark brown band covers its lower back and rear. Its curly tail is tipped with a ruddy red sphere.

Tepig is a nimble Pokémon capable of blowing fire from its snout. It will cloak itself in these flames in order to use its former signature moveHeat Crash.

Trophy information

NATepig, the Fire Pig Pokémon. Instead of breathing fire from its mouth or ears, Tepig does so from its nostrils. Powerful in battle, Tepig's fire is also great for roasting berries, though it can get carried away and char them. Even as clumsy as it can be, who could possibly resist such a cute Pokémon?

PALTepig is a Fire Pig Pokémon. It blows fire through...its mouth? Nope... Its ears? That's not right either... Oh, of course - its nose! That skill's not just handy in battle - it also lets Tepig roast its favourite food, berries! Sadly, it sometimes gets a little too excited about the idea and accidentally burns them to a crisp. Ahh, Tepig, you're too adorable!

Trivia

 
The three silhouettes on Pokémon Sunday
  • Tepig is the lightest Pokémon to learn Heavy Slam.
  • Tepig and its fellow Black and White starter Pokémon were first revealed as silhouettes on the May 9, 2010 episode of Pokémon Sunday. They were later completely revealed in the June 2010 issue of CoroCoro.
  • Tepig and its evolved forms were tamed by Lee HyunJung.[1] They were also the first Generation V starters to be tamed.
  • In Pokémon Black and White, Tepig, along with Snivy and Oshawott, has the lowest experience yield of all Pokémon, with a base value of 28. This was done specifically for the first two battles of the games, so the player's starter wouldn't level up after defeating Bianca and thus have a level advantage over Cheren.
    • From Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 onward, their base experience yield was raised to 62 to bring them in line with the other starter Pokémon in the series.

Origin

Tepig is based on a British Saddleback piglet. Ken Sugimori has said that Tepig, Pignite, and Emboar were designed in a Chinese style. Because of this, Tepig may be based on Zhu Bajie, a pig creature from the Chinese fake tale Journey to the West.

Name origin

Tepig is a combination of tepid (lukewarm) and pig.

Pokabu is a combination of ぽかぽか pokapoka (warmth circulating through one's body) and 豚 buta (pig) or ブー  (oink).
