#059 Arcanine Pokedex

Japanese Name:


TP Roll Craft

Type: Fire
Species: Legendary
Weight: 342.00 lbs.
Height: 6' 3"
Evolution: Growlithe evolves to Arcanine with the Fire Stone


A Pokémon whose beauty is legendary in China. It is said to run gracefully and lightly, as if it were flying.  Arcanine's formidable arsenal of special attacks includes Roar, Ember, Leer and Take Down. Ground-, Rock- and Water-type Pokémon, however, can put out this puppy's fire.

You can't catch Arcanine in the wild in any gameboy -- you have to evolve a Growlithe using a Fire Stone.  In Yellow or Red, you can catch a Growlithe in Pokemon Mansion.  Red owners can also catch lower-level Growlithes on Routes 7 and 8.


Grass, Ice, Bug, Steel

Disadvantages: Fire, Water, Rock, and Dragon
