Litten

Litten is a Fire type Pokémon introduced in Generation 7. It is known as the Fire Cat Pokémon.

The cool-headed Fire Cat Pokémon, Litten, is the next choice for a first-partner Pokémon. Litten's fur is rich in oils and is immensely flammable. It constantly grooms itself by licking its coat, collecting loose fur into balls. It then ignites these hairballs to create fireball attacks. When the time comes for Litten to molt, it burns off all of its fur in one glorious blaze.

Litten starts with the move Ember.

Pokédex entries

Sun While grooming itself, it builds up fur inside its stomach. It sets the fur alight and spews fiery attacks, which change based on how it coughs.
Moon It doesn’t allow its emotions to be easily seen. Earning its trust takes time. It prefers solitude.
Ultra Sun If you try too hard to get close to it, it won’t open up to you. Even if you do grow close, giving it too much affection is still a no-no.
Ultra Moon Its coat regrows twice a year. When the time comes, Litten sets its own body on fire and burns away the old fur.
