Once evolved into Monferno, Chimchar's impish mischief transforms into teenage rowdiness and angst. When this Pokémon's burning bum turns into a torching tail, he gains a secondary Fighting type, making him useful in a variety of new situations, and his speed begins to stand out as the other starters put on weight. Monferno is disappointingly similar to Ruby and Sapphire's starter evolution Blaziken, only everyone likes monkeys more than chickens.

Evolves into Infernape at Level 36.
