Little guy has been in my head for the last few weeks and I just felt like sharing. Though he wont really be a fakemon for the site as Houndoom already has an evolution, and so there can be no pre-evolution for Houndour
Only one Houndrunt is born in a littler, when one is, it is normally abandoned by it’s parents to fend for itself, as Houndrunts are normally the runt of the littler, and most parents don’t want to go through the trouble of taking care of it. It’s pretty rare when the mother keeps and raises it. Because of abandonment, not many make it to evolution, and die within the first week if not the first day of being abandoned. Those that do make it to evolution are extremely solitary and don’t trust others easily, though they tend to be a little stronger then most. Some Houndrunts are sometimes taken in by another pack of wild pokemon or Houndoom, so it’s not highly unlikely to see one with a pack of Mightyena, Arcanine or other canine pokemon. Even a lonely female Houndoom will take it in and raise it as it’s own, though this normally only happens if the female was unable to have pups of her own and then most likely abandoned by her mate, or if she had been a Houndrunt herself at some point and knows what the pup is going through. Sometimes even a male Houndoom will care for it, though it’s mostly out of pity when that happens.
Houndrunt’s are not commonly found in the wild, and so it’s more likely to find one with a breeder or trainer.
