Magmar, the Spitfire Pokémon. Its body is like a furnace, making Magmar a living inferno. It has been discovered only near active volcanoes.
– Ash’s Pokedex
Magmar is the family-less Fire type in Gen I, the counterpart to Electabuzz. It later got a pre-evolution and evolution in separate generations. Looking closer at it, Magmar looks pretty weird. I always hated its head and face, it looks like it has a butt-face, haha. Because of those.. things above its eyes, it always has a sort of worried face. It also looks like its mouth is constantly pursed because of the bill thing.
Magmar is probably best known for being Blaine’s signature Pokemon. In the anime, Ash’s Charizard had a pretty good battle with Blaine’s Magmar.
Stat-wise, it has good Sp Attack, decent Speed and Attack, but pretty bad defenses.
