Very competitive,
this POKéMON will
chase anything
that moves fast
in the hopes of
racing it.
Just loves to run.
If it sees some-
thing faster than
itself, it will
give chase at top
At full gallop,
its four hooves
barely touch the
ground because it
moves so incredi-
bly fast.
With incredible
acceleration, it
reaches its top
speed of 150 mph
after running just
ten steps.
It just loves to
gallop. The faster
it goes, the long-
er the swaying
flames of its mane
will become.
