A lot of fun when into this one, as is the case with most of my other races. The first question on everyone's mind is probably going to be, "What the heck is up with those subrace names?" Well, those happen to be the names of Hitmonlee, Hitmonchan and Hitmontop in different languages.

Siraso comes from Sirasomon, the Korean name for Hitmonlee.

Ebiwalar is literally the Japanese name for Hitmonchan, unedited.

Khitera is a mix of Khitmontop (Russian) and Kapoera (French, German and Korean), which are the names of Hitmontop.


Since you're playing as a Tyrogue and not a Hitmon, I figured the subraces being disciplines made more sense. Even the ability scores reflect the evolutions.

Hitmonlee = Str > Def

Hitmonchan = Str < Def

Hitmontop = Str = Dex


It's kind of ironic then that it's Hitmontop's score that breaks the balance, so to speak.

Hitmonlee's "Kicking Master" is from a pokedex entry which states that that is the title people give it for obvious reasons. The Japanese version of Unburdened is Acrobatics, hence why it gives the skill it does. Also in the games the ability is called Unburden, but I felt Unburdened sounded better. Lastly, Hitmonchan's Fist of the Elements is meant to reflect the fact it can learn Fire Punch, Ice Punch and Thunder Punch. --MetalShadowOverlord (talk) 05:24, 18 January 2019 (MST)
