Chimchar Pokémon are small little monkey type creatures. They are covered with orange fur and can be found in the Sinnoh region. Chimchar have a small flame in place of their tales, due to the high-flamable gas that they produce in their stomachs. You will also find a symbol reminiscent of a swirl on their chest area. Chimchar, also known as Hikozaru in the Japanese version, made his Pokémon series debut in the very first Diamond and Pearl episode. It was one of the 3 starter Pokémon discovered in the lab of Professor Rowan.
Chimchar is numbered #390 in the National Pokédex and is a fire-type Pokémon. As a Chimchar evolves, it will change into a Monferno which uses it's flaming tale to scare off it's opponents. The next step up, Chimchar will evolve into Infernape which can create a monsterous attack using all of his limbs.
