Growlithe (Japanese: ガーディ Gardie) is a Fire-type Pokémon.

It evolves into Arcanine when exposed to a Fire Stone.

Biology

Physiology

Growlithe is a quadruped, canine Pokémon. It has a short, rounded muzzle, a small, fluffy tail, a tuft of fur on top of its head, and rounded ears. It has bright orange fur with black stripes over its back and on its forelegs. Its belly, tail, and fluff on top of its head are a cream color. Its nose is shiny black, while the insides of its ears are light brown. Unlike its evolution, Growlithe has two claws on its forepaws, and its paw pads are brown (instead of pink).

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Growlithe can spit fire. It has a powerful sense of smell to identify the emotions of others. Upon getting a scent, it will not forget it, no matter what. However, strong, unpleasant smells can disable their sense of smell for short periods.

Behavior

Extremely loyal, this Pokémon fiercely defends its Trainer and territory.

Habitat

Grassland

Grassland Pokémon

Growlithe live in active volcanoes, grassy plains, and scorched plains heated by geothermal energy. Its native range includes Kanto and Johto. In captivity, they're often used as police dogs due to their loyal nature and powerful sense of smell. They're also seen occasionally as pets.
