Tepig is a Fire type Pokémon. It evolves into Pignite starting at level 17, which evolves into Emboar starting at level 36.

It is one of the eighteen Starter Pokémon, able to be chosen at the start of Pokémon Reborn.

BiologyEdit

PhysiologyEdit

Tepig is a quadruped, pig-like Pokémon that is primarily orange. It has oval eyes, a pink nose, and a thick yellow stripe on its snout. The upper portion of its head is dark brown, and its long, pointed ears are positioned closely together. Tepig has short legs, and its front feet are dark brown. A dark brown band covers its lower back and rear. Its curly tail is tipped with a ruddy pink sphere. Tepig is a nimble Pokémon capable of blowing fire from its snout. It will cloak itself in these flames in order to use its signature move, Heat Crash. However, it will spout thick, black smoke when ill. Tepig will roast berries before eating them, but occasionally gets overexcited and burns them.
