Infernape and Emboar's Body Art looks similar because Both Infernape and Emboar are Inspired from the Character in the Book '' The Journey to The West". Infernape is Inspired by Sun Wukong, The Monkey King In The Book'' Emboar is Inspired by Zhu Wuneng, The Demon Pig in The Book "The Journey To The West".

There's not really a reason (other than Game Freak getting lazy), and probably wasn't intended to look that way, but they are sort of similar; you could say that. The colors are certainly similar, so I can see why you'd think that. Do keep in mind though this happens a lot; back when we didn't know much about Unova's new Pokemon, many of us believed that Alomomola was an evolution on the pathetic Luvdisc.

Only game freak knows why. They made it like that..... maybe they are cousins. Write a letter to game freak or something... I doubt they will reply.

no i mean look at the body art on infernape's ribs and emboar's stomach. don't they look the same to you?
Oh, you mean those swirly yellow things?
yea. not to sound rude or ungrateful but it seems like game freak and the pokemon company kinda got lazy on the fifth generation fire starter. but if i can pick favorites, i would choose infernape over emboar any day of the week.
How could you take infernape over emboar? Emboar has higher stats than infernape.
stats aren't everything lol. Infernape has lower base stats, but its stats are very good for a fast sweeper. Emboar is a slow, physical attacker with middling bulk
