Tepig (Pokabu) (ポカブ) is the Fire Pig Pokémon. It stands 0.6 m (2 ft) tall, and it weighs 9.9 kg (21.9 lbs). It is the heaviest of the three starters in Pokémon Black/White, along with Snivy and Oshawott.
The name derives from "pokapoka," which means "warm" in Japanese, and "bu," the sound a pig makes in Japanese culture (here it's "oink").
