Arcanine (ウインディ Uindi?, Windie in original Japanese language versions) is one of 493 fictional species of Pokémon in the Pokémon franchise. Because Arcanine is considered a legendary beast (albeit with a small "l") and is based upon the Chinese fu dog, its name is most likely a portmanteau of the words "arcane" (in the sense of "mystical") and "canine." In the beta English translation, Arcanine was originally going to be called Blaze. Image File history File links Arcanine-059. ...

Biological characteristics

Aracanine is my favorite pokemon because it has large fangs and his fur tail is pretty. Arcanine is a canine pokémon that resembles the shisa but is orange, with black zig-zagging stripes and muscular chest resembling a tiger, also including large, bushy hair and a mane similar to that of a lion. In other words, Arcanine is a cross between a dog and a liger. Categories: Stub ...

Liger The liger is a hybrid cross between a male Panthera leo (lion), and a female Panthera tigris (tiger) and is denoted scientifically as Panthera tigris × Panthera leo. ...


In the Pokémon world, Arcanine is one of the most admirable Pokémon. Many things contribute to this favorable impression: despite its imposing size, Arcanine is very agile and graceful. It can run as much as 6,200 miles (almost 10,000 kilometres) within 24 hours, all the while looking almost as if it is flying. As is the case with most Fire-type Pokémon, the fire burning within its body gives it strength. Its mane is said to be an object of exquisite beauty, and even its bark is described as "majestic" and "awe-inspiring".


Arcanine has been revered in this way from the ancient times and particularly in China, whose real-life ancient culture features divine entities resembling Arcanine in some respects. An ancient picture scroll reveals that Arcanine's passage through prairies attracted people to its movement.


Arcanine's species is classified as "Legendary" in the Pokédex, although the word is probably used in an entirely different context than with the actual Legendary Pokémon. It is theorized, however, that Arcanine was one of the original three Legendary Pokémon, the other two being Zapdos and Articuno. It is thought the game designers decided to make all three legendary pokémon "birds" and so they replaced Arcanine's status as the legendary fire Pokémon with Moltres. They did, however, give it the label of "Legendary Pokémon" (albeit with a lowercase L). Arcanine's sum of base stats are the highest below 580, which is the bench mark for Legendary Pokémon like Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres. This article does not cite any references or sources. ...

In the video games

Arcanine cannot be found in the wild in any of the Pokémon video games, except for Pokémon Snap, where it appears but cannot be caught, and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon, but cannot be befriended. It can, however, be evolved from a Growlithe at any time using a Fire Stone. Therefore, the availability of Growlithe and a Fire stone dictates the availability of Arcanine. Pokémon Snap ) is a video game developed by HAL Laboratory and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo 64. ... Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team ) and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Blue Rescue Team ) are a matched pair of Pokémon games for the Game Boy Advance and Nintendo DS, respectively. ... Growlithe , Gardie in original Japanese language versions) is one of 493 fictional species of Pokémon in the Pokémon franchise. ...


Arcanine's stats are all very well rounded. They have a total of 555, which rivals the stat totals of Legendary Pokémon. (Mew and Celebi for example have a stat total of 600, while Articuno and Entei have a total of 580). Arcanine can also learn many powerful attacks from when it is a Growlithe, as well as from Technical Machines. Growlithe and Arcanine gained more popularity in the Advanced Generation of Pokemon games, as Growlithe was able to learn the useful Helping Hand move. Mew ) is one of the 493 fictional species of Pokémon creatures from the Pokémon media franchise – a collection of video games, anime, manga, books, trading cards and other media created by Satoshi Tajiri. ...

Entei ) is one of the 493 fictional species of Pokémon from the Pokémon franchise. ...


But despite its wide movepool and high stats, Arcanine is a very difficult Pokémon to strategize with due to the incompatibility between its stats and moves. Arcanine's highest offensive stat is its attack but it does not possess many impressive physical attacks. Because it is a fire type Pokémon it naturally gains STAB (Same Type Attack Bonus) from fire attacks, but fire attacks, prior to the 4th generation of Pokémon games, have been reliant on the Special Attack stat, rendering them useless on Arcanine. However, with the Physical/Special split in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, Arcanine can use Fire moves based on the Physical stat, such as Flare Blitz, as well as many other attacks which would have been considered special before Diamond and Pearl due to their typing, such as Thunder Fang, greatly enhancing Arcanine's usability. Pokémon Diamond , Pocket Monsters Diamond) and Pokémon Pearl , Pocket Monsters Pearl) are a pair of role-playing video games developed by Game Freak and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo DS handheld video game console. ...


In Pokémon Snap, Arcanine may jump out of the three erupting volcanoes at the end of the Volcano level, if a Pester Ball is thrown inside accurately enough.


In the anime

Arcanine is one of Gary Oak's Pokémon. They are also used by the police force, along with Growlithe. Gary Oak, known in Japan as Shigeru ), is a fictional character in the Pokémon franchise. ...


In Episode 76 (Fire and Ice), Ash battled an Arcanine in the Pokémon League. After Ash's Kingler defeated his opponent's Cloyster, the opponent switched to Arcanine. Arcanine defeated Kingler with its Dragon Rage, but after Arcanine made the Ice Field melt with its Fire Blast, Pikachu was able to defeat the Arcanine. Also during one Indigo League episode, an Officer Jenny mistakenly calls her Growlithe as an Arcanine.

At the end it turns out our Arcanine was taking care of its babies. This is a list of the major cities and locations from the fictional Kanto region featured in the Pokémon series. ...

Dome Ace Tucker has one in the anime. In episode 2 (Pokémon Emergency) of the first season, Arcanine is briefly depicted on a plaque/ancient-tablet in the Pokémon Center along with Ho-Oh, Zapdos, and Articuno. There is much debate and confusion as to just what these four pokémon have in common, if anything. It has, however, been suggested that the four pokémon were actually Arcanine, Zapdos, Articuno and Moltres (which Ash, Professor Oak and probably many other people mistook for Ho-Oh since it was just a rough image), in which case the plaque depicts the original four legendary pokémon. Zapdos , Thunder in original Japanese language versions) is a fictional character in the Pokémon franchise. ... Articuno , Freezer in original Japanese language versions) is one of the 493 fictional species of Pokémon creatures from the multi-billion-dollar[1] Pokémon media franchise – a collection of video games, anime, manga, books, trading cards and other media created by Satoshi Tajiri. ...

Pokemon Ruby Pokemon of the Day: Arcanine - IGN FAQs (1881 words)
Alrighty, so Arcanine is indisputably one of the most popular Fire types of all time, and while he's not one of my personal favorites we're still going to give him the benefit of the doubt today in order to please the masses.
Arcanine's ExtremeSpeed likely won't be quite as effective as it was in the past (where it was commonly paired with Curse, which Arcanine can no longer learn), but it's still a move to be reckoned with on the whole.
Arcanine might not get STAB on the move but its base power is decent and he's one of the relatively few Pokemon who can learn it AND has the Special Attack to support it, so I say Crunch away.
