Scorbunny (Japanese: ヒバニー Hibanny) is a Fire-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VIII.

It evolves into Raboot starting at level 16, which evolves into Cinderace starting at level 35.

Along with Grookey and Sobble, Scorbunny is one of three starter Pokémon of Galar available at the beginning of Pokémon Sword and Shield.

Along with Grookey and Sobble, it was the first Generation VIII Pokémon to be revealed to the public on February 27, 2019.

Biology

Scorbunny is a rabbit-like Pokémon that has a predominantly white body with orange and yellow markings on its ears, toes, and neck. The markings on its neck resemble a collar. It has buckteeth, an orange nose, and irises, black sclerae, as well as a yellow band shape across its nose, resembling a bandage. It has long legs with long feet and the same yellow band on its nose under each paw pad. It also has a small, white, poof-like tail.

Scorbunny loves to run and is filled with energy. A warm-up run can cause the fire energy in Scorbunny to start coursing through its body, allowing it to fight at full power. The special pads on the back of its feet and nose can generate heat once it is ready to fight. The pads on Scorbunny's feet can get so hot that it is capable of using them to burn opponents with a kick and it can start small fires from underneath its feet. The anime has shown that its heat pads can also thaw others out of ice. By using its powerful legs, Scorbunny can run and jump around its opponents to confuse and disorient them. It is a rare Pokémon that is found more often under the ownership of Trainers.[1] According to the anime, the soles on Scorbunny's feet are believed to bring good luck.

Trivia

  • Scorbunny and its evolved form share their category with Buneary and Lopunny. They are all known as the Rabbit Pokémon.
  • Scorbunny is tied with Litwick for the smallest Fire-type Pokémon.

Origin

Scorbunny may be based on a white rabbit. It may also take inspiration from the high body temperature of rabbits, ranging from 100 to 103 degrees Fahrenheit (from 37 to 39 degrees Celsius). Scorbunny being Fire-type is a reference to tale 316 of the Jataka tales in which the rabbit was not burnt by flames.

Name origin

Scorbunny may be a combination of scorch, score, and bunny.

Hibanny may be a combination of 火 hi (fire), 火花 hibana (spark), and bunny.
