SPECIAL TRAITS/TRIVIA:
--This Fire/Dark type Pokémon is modeled after a "heel" wrestler.
--Many of Incineroar's A attacks, especially the smashes, are taken from real wrestling techniques. Alolan Whip in particular is based on the Irish Whip.
--Often does mini-taunts after successful attacks (& mini-complaints after whiffing).
--Revenge can soak up several attacks before releasing the energy (as long as they're weak).
--Can only enter helpless fall if he bounces off Pac-Man's red trampoline or if Cross Chop bounces off the edge of a platform.

As some of you know, when my wife saw a picture of Incineroar for the first time, she busted up laughing.

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"
