Normally passive unless provoked, CHIMACONDA inject their prey with a paralytic venom and then wrap it in their tails, squeezing the life out.
Chimaconda is a quadrupedal, feline Pokémon with red fur that resembles a chimera. It has two triangular ears and tufts of red fur on its cheeks, a pair of tattered purple wings and a pair of purple horns that curve backwards. It has purple eyes, a purple nose and a pair of sharp white fangs protruding from its top jaw. It also has a long thick tail ending in a snake's head, and a pattern that consists of a singular green ring below the base of the tail, then numerous red rings along the length of the tail. The males also possess shaggy white manes that obscure their ears and cheeks. The females have shorter horns and a different pattern consisting of spots in the place of the rings. Although Chimaconda are normally passive unless provoked, they'll inject poison into their prey with their tail and wrap their tail around it, squeezing the life out of it.
Chimaconda is based on a mythological chimera, a creature that resembles a lion but has a snake for a tail and an additional goat head protruding from its body. However, instead of an entire additional head, Chimaconda only has goat horns. While the original Chimera of ancient Greek myths lacked wings, chimeras have often been depicted with them since. It specifically draws inspiration from the "Ultimate Chimera" from Mother 3, which shares several design choices, including a weakness on the back, bat wings, and a red body.
The coloration of Chimaconda's snake tail resembles that of an anaconda, a giant tropical constrictor snake.
Chimaconda's name is a combination of chimera and anaconda.
