The Fire Snout Pokémon
It can be very aggressive following evolution or when introduced into a new social group, which is an instinctual response meant to establish social position. Pyvol is adapted for a strict social hierarchy, and uncertainty in social standing can cause severe stress, which in turn can lead to a number of medical issues. As such, while many trainers prefer a more socially equitable dynamic with their team members, they are strongly urged to be very firm with Pyvol when they try to push limits that have been set.
Pyvol is of the Fire Type. It is resistant to the Bug, Grass, Fairy, Fire, Grass, Ice, and Steel Types. It is weak to the Rock, Water, and Ground Types. It is commonly possess the ability Blaze, which increases the strength of Fire-Type moves in a pinch, but may on rare occasions possess the ability Solar Power, which increases Special Attack in sunny weather, but while harming the Pokémon in question over time. Pyvol is fast and possessed of considerable non-physical offensive power. Its accuracy and agility in battle are also impressive, if less so. Its physical strength and defenses, however, are not as impressive. Pyrew Pyvol has four legs, each with three long toes, which it uses to crawl across the ground and clamber and climb over objects. It has a long nose, which is sensitive and can detect a wide array of scents. Pyvol developed the sophisticated internal high-temperature mechanisms common to Fire Types when it evolved from Pyrew. Its long tail is still used for balance, but as opposed to Pyrew's bare tail, Pyvol's is covered in bushy fur, which stores considerable static charge.
Genetics and Reproduction
Being the intermediate stage of an evolutionary line, Pyvol does not have a particularly strong instinctual drive to procreate, but does nevertheless possess the ability. Pyvol belongs to the Field Egg Group. Eggs lain by Pyvreol mothers hatch into young Pyrew.

Dietary Needs and Habits
Pyvol is not so voraciously hungry as its pre-evolution Pyrew, due chiefly to its body temperature regulation being more in-line with other Fire Types. Nevertheless, as with the vast majority of Pokémon, it does still need to eat. Its diet consists primarily of fruit, seeds, nuts, and small plants in the wild. Captive Pyvol have demonstrated a great fondness for baked goods of all kinds, but these have no relation to their natural food sources, so the reason is not understood.
Pyvol, as well as its pre-evolution Pyrew, and its evolved form Pyrrel, are considered critically endangered, as defined by the Transregional Convention on the Protection of Pokémon Species (the Convention). This was declared in a joint statement by the Pokémon League of the Arvent Region and the Transregional Pokémon Ranger Corps at the Seventh Annual Joint Conference for the Preservation of the Arbent Region. The reason for their endangered status was attributed to habitat loss as a result of urbanization in the Arvent Region. As per the Convention, Pyrew, Pyvol, and Pyvrelle may not be caught in the wild, and those bred in captivity may only enter the care of a trainer with the approval of an accredited Pokémon Professor. Their remaining habitats exist far from human settlement, but are nevertheless protected from development and resource extraction, as per the terms of the Convention.
