This Pokémon has not evolved.

Scarlett's Growlithe is the third Pokémon that Scarlett catches on her Kalos journey. Growlithe is normally seen outside his Pokéball as he does not like traveling in it.


Kalos Arc

Growlithe makes his appearance in Starting Journey, where he appears on Kalos Route 4. He takes an interest in Scarlett and pretty soon a battle to capture the Puppy Pokémon begins. After some fighting, Growlithe is soon caught making him Scarlett's first caught Pokémon.

Growlithe appears again The Safari! where he is sent out to battle a Sableye, since Eevee wouldn't be much as Sableye is a dual Dark/Ghost type. It took a bit, but Growlithe was able to defeat Sableye and allowed Scarlett to catch the Darkness Pokémon,

In A Buggy Battle, Growlithe is Scarlett's second pick and set out to fight Viola's Vivillon after the defeat of Eevee and Surskit.

Personality and characteristics

Like his species, Growlithe is very loyal to Scarlett, despite having recently been captured by her. His favorite thing to do with Scarlett is being groomed by her.

Growlithe generally doesn't like to be his Pokéball, but will return to his Pokéball if Scarlett asks him. From his battle against Scarlett and Eevee it shows that Growlithe is a strong battler
