Hitmonlee, the Kicking Pokémon. This nimble Pokémon launches lethal kicks from almost any position.
– Ash’s Pokedex
Hitmonlee used to be a single Pokemon, but then in Gen II, with the addition of Tyrogue, it all of a sudden became part of a 4-Pokemon family. Appearance-wise though, it’s my least favourite Hitmon, ’cause it looks rather strange. It has no mouth, and its body is blob-like. I think it’s supposed to resemble a human foot, because it’s based on kicking and all that.
Stat-wise, it has high Attack, Sp Defense, and good Speed, but low HP, Defense, and Sp Attack (which it doesn’t really need). As expected, it learns a lot of kicking type moves. Hitmonlee had the most Signature moves of all Pokemon: Mega Kick, Jump Kick, Hi Jump Kick, and Rolling Kick, though most of them are no longer signature moves since other Pokemon can learn them now too. It gets the ability Unburden from the Dreamworld, which could be useful, to double its Speed.
