Infernape (Japanese: ゴウカザル Goukazaru) is a dual-type Fire/Fighting Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

It evolves from Monferno starting at level 36. It is the final form of Chimchar.

Biology

Infernape is a bipedal, primate-like Pokémon that is primarily reddish-brown with sections of white fur on its chest, head, and lower legs. Several gold markings adorn its body: swirled, circular ones on its knees and shoulders flame-shaped ones on the back of its hands, and a stripe around its back that forms two swirls on its chest. On top of its head is a large flame, which is never extinguished. Infernape has an orange, rounded muzzle, long, round ears with blue inside, and a red ridge over its eyes. The eyes themselves are blue with yellow sclera. There are five blue digits on both its feet and hands, and it has a long tail. This quick Pokémon practices a unique kind of martial art that involves all of its limbs. This style uses fiery punches and kicks as well.

Trophy information

NA: Infernape's flames burn like a raging inferno - that's probably how it got its name. The fire on its head never goes out, and the flames on its hands and feet, combined with its unique skills, make Infernape look like it's performing some kind of elaborate fire dance when it fights.

PAL: Doesn't the name just conjure up images of this fair creature living a peaceful life in a forest of ferns? You know, In-fern-ape. ...What, you think it's actually to do with "inferno"? Hmm... Well, maybe... Anyway, it has a crown of fire that never goes out, and combines flames and fighting in a way that looks like some kind of fire dance.

Trivia

Origin

Infernape is based on a monkey. The gold elements in its design as well as its Japanese name are most likely linked to Son Goku, the Japanese interpretation of the character Sun Wukong. Sun Wukong is the main character in the Chinese epic Journey to the West and is a monkey with powerful abilities. It is also similar to the Vanara, a race of ape-like humanoids in the Hindu epic Ramayana, specifically Hanuman who was granted immunity to fire. Hanuman is also believed to have influenced Sun Wukong. It is most likely based on the martial art Muay Thai which uses all the limbs and possibly Monkey Kung Fu, another type of martial arts. It may have also be loosely based on Crazy Monkey Defense, a boxing style that incorporated elements from other martial arts such as Muay Thai.

Name origin

Infernape is a combination of inferno and ape.

Goukazaru is a combination of 業火 gōka (hellfire or inferno) and 猿 saru (monkey).
