The Arcanine is a Pokemon and debuted back in the first generation of Pokemon games on the Game Boy in 1996 and returned in almost all sequels and versions. It had the Pokedex Number #059

It is a Fire-Type Pokemon and evolved from a Growlithe if it was exposed to a Fire Stone.

The Arcanine is probably based on a Ryukyuan, a mythical creature inspired by Tigers, Dogs and Lions.
