Magby #240

Biology

Magby is a bipedal Pokémon with a red body, a yellow flame-shaped marking on its stomach, and a black collar around its neck. It features a rounded, golden beak and a skull covered in huge bumps. It has a single spike on its back and a tapering tail. It has three clawed fingers on its short arms and just two clawed toes on its feet.

Magby can breathe 1100 degrees Fahrenheit (600 degrees Celsius) flames, and hot embers trickle from its lips. These flames may indicate a Magby’s health; yellow flames indicate excellent health, whereas flames combined with a lot of smoke indicate exhaustion, and flames trickling from its snout indicate a cold. Magby’s volcanic environment keeps it healthy. However, it may be found in cities. Magby is renowned for being little and shy. When aroused or shocked, it emits flames. It likes to bathe in volcanic lava to recoup from the day’s exhaustion.
