Magmortar (Japanese: ブーバーン Booburn) is a Fire-type Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

It evolves from Magmar when traded while holding a Magmarizer. It is the final form of Magby.

Biology

 
Magmortar's cannon

Magmortar is a large, vaguely humanoid, red-and-yellow-striped Pokémon with an egg-shaped body. It has pink lips on its dark face. It has yellow, tubular arms with a black "band" on both and three small claws on the black part of each "hand". Its legs are small in proportion to its body with pink thighs, red feet, and black shackles around the ankles. It has one large yellow flame on its head, as well as large red flames on its shoulders and tail. Additionally, it has four pink spikes on its back. It has an organ that resembles a magma chamber.

When Magmortar prepares to shoot fire from its hands, the claws are capable of disappearing into its skin, forming a pressurized cannon. It blasts fireballs of over 3,600 °F (2,000 °C) burning foes to a blackened crisp, though avoids this method when hunting prey. Magmortar increases its body temperature by inhaling deeply, increasing the fire burning with its belly. When firing, its body can turn into a whitish hue from the intense heat. Its arm starts melting when it fires a whole barrage. Magmortar is used in some factories in order to process metal. It lives in volcanic craters, with a single pair of male and female Magmortar occupying one.

Trivia

Origin

Magmortar seems to be a buffed-up version of its pre-evolved form's inspiration, the Karura. It also has features of a duck or booby with a mythical salamander. The spikes on its back resemble those of an iguana.

Name origin

Magmortar may be a combination of magma and mortar (referring to how it shoots fireballs from its cannon-like arms).

Booburn is a combination of booby and burn.
