Pignite #499

Biology

Pignite is a pig-like bipedal Pokémon. It has an orange pudgy body with brown bands across its shoulders, sides, belly, hands, and down its nose. Yellow bands wrap around its wrists, and swirling yellow motifs protrude from its torso. It features a red pig-like snout, pointed ears, and two sharp teeth that protrude from its lower jaw. It has two claws on each hand and a single nail on each foot. It has a curled tail with a tuft of hair at the tip.

Pignite has a fire in its stomach that it feeds on. As more fuel is supplied or Pignite is enraged, the intensity of this flame grows. Pignite’s speed rises as the flame intensifies. If under danger, it will spew forth enormous smoke clouds in try to flee. Heat Crash was its trademark move before to Generation VIII.
