Hitmontop (Japanese: カポエラー Kapoerer) is a Fighting-type Pokémon.
Hitmontop is a vaguely humanoid Pokémon capable of spinning on its head. Its main body is spherical and mostly blue with a brown triangular patch on its chest. It has short legs with white bands near the hands and feet. The feet are large, blue and have a circular brown pad on the underside. It has a skinny brown tail that ends with a blue sphere with a spike on it. Its head is round and brown with flat, curved extensions on either side and a single spike on top. It has a beady, black eyes and spherical hands with no digits. Hitmontop is a male-only species with no female counterpart.
Hitmontop moves more quickly by spinning on the spike on its head than it does by walking normally. Capable of spinning at high speeds, it may bore into the ground similar to a drill. While spinning, Hitmontop delivers smooth, graceful kicks such as its signature move, Triple Kick. As an urban species, it is often found in towns and cities.
- Unlike Hitmonlee and Hitmonchan, none of Hitmontop's names in any language derive from famous people.
- Hitmontop can learn more priority moves than any other Pokémon, with 14 increased priority moves and two decreased priority moves.
- Though Hitmontop shares the Ability Steadfast with Tyrogue, a Steadfast Tyrogue cannot evolve into a Hitmontop with the same Ability, as Steadfast is Tyrogue's second Ability and Hitmontop's Hidden Ability.
