#228 Houndour

Houndour, the Dark Pokémon. Houndour travel in packs and communicate though barks in order to surround their prey.
– Ash’s Pokedex

Houndour is the first Dark/Fire Pokemon. Its species name is just “Dark Pokemon”. It’s based on a hellhound, and it looks rather mean. It’s one of the few Fire types available pre-National dex in Platinum.

In the anime, Houndour was featured in the episode “Hour of Houndour”. I don’t know why I remember that title. I barely remember what the episode was about (something about Togepi getting lost and Houndour finding it I think), but that title sticks with me…

Stat-wise, it has good Sp Attack, but quite low Defense, making it quite easy to take out. Its type also presents many weaknesses, including Fighting.

  1. Hour of Houndour is about a houndour that gets hurt and Ash has to get a pack of houndour to trust him so he can bring the injured houndour to the pokemon center. Lol I really remember that episode because I love houndour and houndoom.
