Heatmor (Japanese: クイタラン Kuitaran) is a Fire-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

Biology

Heatmor is a bipedal, anteater-like Pokémon. It has a beige face while the rest of its fur is red with yellow stripes sharing the appearance of molten lava. On its lower abdomen, back, and underside are raised, beige-colored bands that resemble pipes, leading to its tail. Heatmor's claws, on both its feet and hands, are a dull yellow and on its wrists are raised, dented bands; both the wrists and feet are beige-colored. Its tail is dented upward and has a hole in it, similar in appearance to a muffler. It also seems to serve the same purpose as a muffler, being able to expel gases.

Durant are the preferred prey of Heatmor. Its Pokédex entry states that it burns through Durant's steel bodies with its tongue and consumes their insides. It uses its tail to absorb the air in order to keep its fire burning. Should that hole get blocked, Heatmor will become ill as a result. In the past, Fire Lash was its signature move.

Trivia

  • Heatmor being the natural predator of Durant is reflected in their types.
  • Heatmor and Durant were both designed by Ken Sugimori.[1]
  • Heatmor and Durant have a lot of similarities. They share the same leveling rate, catch rate, hatch time, base experience yield, base stat total, and gender ratio.

Origin

Heatmor seems to be based on an anteater with elements of flamethrowers and ironworks. Its wrists resemble air filter intake inlets and its tail is similar to an engine's muffler.

Name origin

Heatmor may be a combination of heat and armor (referring to the armored appearance of its fur) or mortar (referring to its type and barrel-like arms). It may also be a play on eat more, as in to "eat more ants."

Kuitaran may be a combination of アリクイ arikui (anteater) and anteater, specifically the an and tar. It may also be a play on 食い足らん kuitaran (has not eaten enough), similar to its English name.
