Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Its Japanese name, Chaobu, seems to come from the Chinese 超 chāo (super) or 炒 chǎo (sauté), and the Japanese 豚 buta (pig); or ブー bū, (oink).
  • Pignite is the fifth Fire-type starter evolution to be a Fire/Fighting-type Pokémon. The others are Combusken, Blaziken, Monferno, and Infernape.
  • Pignite was first seen on September 1st 2010, when an image containing all of the evolutions of the starter Pokémon was shown on a Japanese forum. It was officially revealed on the October issue of Coro Coro on September 11, 2010. It was the only second evolution of a Generation V starter Pokémon not seen on the beta art of the Best Wishes series.
  • Pignite and its evolution, Emboar, have broken the fact that Arm Thrust was Makuhita and Hariyama's signature move (learning it at level 17).
  • Pignite's English name is a combination of the words "pig" and "ignite."
