Trivia: No
** Arcanine has the highest base stats of any Pokémon that has only evolved once.
* Arcanine has the second-highest base stat average of any non-legendary and non-[[pseudo-legendary]] Pokémon, next to {{p|Slaking}}.
* Because of its high stats, its [[species]], and the fact that it was illustrated in an ancient slab along with the [[legendary birds]] in the [[EP002|second episode]], it could be theorized that Arcanine was originally planned to be part of the legendary trio in first generation games; possibly even the birds' [[trio master]].
* Arcanine's Pokédex entry for Pokémon Yellow connects the Pokémon world with our own. It says "A legendary Pokémon in {{wp|China}}. Many people are charmed by its grace and beauty while running."
* In [[Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team|Pokémon Mystery Dungeon]], it describes itself as having a speed that no one can match, but it is tied at the 68th fastest Pokémon with 20 others.
