Known Trainers with an Arcanine

Origins

Arcanine are based off of the Shisa, a traditional Ryukyuan decoration, resembling a cross between a lion and a dog, from Okinawa mythology. Pairs of these decorations are used as guardians and to invite good luck.

Arcanine's English name comes from a combination of the words "Arcane" meaning anceint and "Canine".

Trivia

  • Despite its species being "Legendary Pokémon", it is not considered a Legendary Pokémon. This likely due to it evolving from Growlithe and Legendary Pokémon can never have an evolution chain.
  • Arcanine's base stats are the highest of any Pokémon that has only evolved once.
  • Arcanine's prototype name was "Blaze".
  • The Yellow Pokédex entry states that Arcanine is seen in China, showing that there are similarities in regions with the real world and Pokémon world.
  • "Arcanine" is the combination of "Arcane" and "Canine".
  • Arcanine is possibly a mix breed of a wolf and tiger, and since they're seen in China, this could relate.
