Tepig (Pokémon)

56 bytes added, 20 August
* Tepig is the lightest Pokémon to learn {{m|Heavy Slam}}.
* Tepig and its fellow {{2v2|Black|White}} starter Pokémon were first revealed as silhouettes on the May 9, 2010 episode of [[Pokémon Sunday]]. They were later completely revealed in the June 2010 issue of [[CoroCoro]].
* Tepig and its {{p|Pignite|evolutionary}} {{p|Emboar|relatives}} were created by [[Lee HyunJung]]. They were also the first Generation V starters created.
* In {{g|Black and White}}, Tepig, along with {{p|Snivy}} and {{p|Oshawott}}, has the lowest [[experience]] yield of all Pokémon, with a base value of 28. This was done specifically for the first two battles of the games, so the player's starter wouldn't level up after defeating [[Bianca]] and thus have a level advantage over [[Cheren]].
** From {{g|Black 2 and White 2}} onward, their base experience yield was raised to 62 to bring them in line with the other [[starter Pokémon]] in the series.
