Scorbunny

Scorbunny is a Fire type Pokémon introduced in Generation 8. It is known as the Rabbit Pokémon.

Scorbunny is one of the starter Pokémon available in Pokémon Sword & Shield (releasing late 2019) along with Grookey and Sobble.

It is always running about, bursting with energy. During the Sword & Shield announcement trailer it runs up a large cog, then leaves fiery footprints in the grass.

Scorbunny is based on a rabbit/hare. It has large, pointed ears and big paws.
