Tepig is the fire starter for Unova. It spawns in the dessert and evolves into Piginite and Emboar, at level 17 and 36. Due to its status as a starter Pokémon, a wild Tepig is hard to come by and it is generally found under the ownership of Trainers. Trainers can spend hours searching for a Tepig.
Tepig is typically small and resembles a pig, with a snout, stubby ears, and a curly spring-like tail with a red ball at the end. Its legs, upper body, and lower head are all orange. It has ears that are brown along with the upper half of its head, and some of its lower body. the end of its snout is a burnt orange along with the ball on its tail, and it has a little yellow spot just above the snout. It loves to eat roasted berries, but sometimes it gets too excited and burns them to a crisp.
