Chimchar

Art by Ken Sugimori from Diamond and Pearl.

Chimchar (Japanese: ヒコザル Hikozaru) is a fire-type Pokémon in Pokémon Platinum, as well as Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl.


Chimchar evolves into Monferno at level 14, which evolves into Infernape at level 36.

Along with Turtwig and Piplup, it is one of the three possible starter Pokémon in the Sinnoh Region.


AppearanceEdit

AppearanceEdit

Chimchar has a resemblance to a chipanzee. It has a small flame on its tail. The flame is produced by burning gas from its stomach. It is mainly a shade of burnt orange, but has tan feet, hands, undertorso, and face. Chimchar has red patches above its eyes, which are brown. The insides of its ears are also red. Chimchar has a small red patch on its rear, but this is usually covered by the fire on its tail. It has a swirl pattern on its chest.


Gender DifferencesEdit

Chimchar has no differences based on Gender.


Shiny DifferencesEdit

A shiny Chimchar is mostly a dark red color, rather that burnt orange.


Game DataEdit

Pokédex EntryEdit

It is very agile. Before going to sleep, it extinguishes the flame on its tail to prevent fires.


Game LocationEdit

Chimchar is given to the player by Professer Rowan on Route 201 near the start of the game.
