Appearance[edit | edit source]

Houndoom are a canine-like Pokémon, with a similar appearance to its pre-evolved form Houndour. Houndoom are large, black, and have a brown underbelly and muzzle. Around each of its ankles are two sets of bone-like bands. On its back are rib-like structures, appearing like an exoskeleton, that lead up to its neck. In between the two ends of the bone on its neck is a small skull emblem. Instead of having visible ears near the top of its head, Houndoom have large demon-like horn. Another notable feature is the long, skinny tail which ends in an arrow point.

Special abilities[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • No other Pokémon share the same type combination as Houndoom and its pre-evolution Houndour.
  • Despite having a pair of horns, it cannot learn Horn attack or Horn drill. This might be due to the fact that the horns curve back, making it difficult to stab with the points of the horns
