Lizakbar is a bipedal, humanoid Pokémon resembling a bearded lizard with a hog nose. Like its pre-evolutions, it bears a lit tail resembling an explosive fuse. Lizakbar wears a keffiyeh atop its head and a belt of dynamite around its waist, and holds 3 sticks of dynamite in either hand.
On April Fools' Day 2019, Lizakbar was given a fake alternate form that gave it a long red chef's apron, and replaced the dynamite sticks in its hands with ice cream cones.
Lizakbar's evolution line is a playful rendition of the stereotype that Muslims are terrorists, as suggested by events such as 9/11 and the Syrian Civil War. Its tail is based on the fuse of a bomb. It may also reference the "Allahu akbar" meme. Its appearance is based on the bearded lizard, though it has many humanoid features, and the attire commonly worn by both Muslims and bombers.
Lizakbar is a combination of the words lizard and Akbar, from the Arabic phrase Allahu akbar, which translates as "God is great" or "God is magnificent". Allahu akbar has been used as a battle cry for Muslims for as far back as the Crusades. However, in this case, it is associated with Islamic extremist terrorists, who have been known to shout the phrase before a suicide bombing.
Akubakuretsu is a combination of akuba (Akbar) and bakuretsu (explosive heat).
