Quilava (Japanese: マグマラシ Magmarashi) is a Fire-type Pokémon.

It evolves from Cyndaquil starting at level 14 and evolves into Typhlosion starting at level 36.

Biology

Physiology

Like its pre-evolution, Cyndaquil, the top half of Quilava's body is blue and the lower half creamy-colored; however, its entire body is slimmer in proportion and it is now a quadruped. It also has triangular ears with red-colored insides. Quilava possesses a much smaller, more rounded nose than the one it had as Cyndaquil, and its eyes are open, revealing its red irises. It has five red-colored spots on its body in which it projects flame at will, two in a somewhat exclamation-mark shape on its forehead and three lined up horizontally on its rear.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Quilava's fur is non-flammable, so it can withstand flame attacks. The fire coming from its head and rear, which are stronger than Cyndaquil's, can be launched as a flame attack. It also uses gusts of superheated air as a battle technique.

Behavior

Quilava is known to be less timid than Cyndaquil, though its behavior appears to be affected by its surroundings. A very common occurrence during evolution is an increase in aggression. Although Quilava is a natural quadruped, it is prone to rising onto its hind legs on occasion, to enough of a height as to be able to use Focus Punch, which usually can only be learned by naturally bipedal Pokémon.

Quilava seem to have a predilection for turning its back on its opponent before and when in battle. When before the battle, it is to display how ferociously its fire blazes. When in battle, this means it will attack with the fire on its back. The intensity of the flames also increases in battle, with its Fire-type attacks only boosted when it is weakened. Quilava is described to apply its nimbleness to dodge attacks, even while scorching its foes.

Habitat

Quilava has been known to adapt to many habitats; however, it is usually found in the care of Trainers.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

In the anime

Major appearances

Ash's Quilava

Ash's Cyndaquil evolved into Quilava in An Old Family Blend!, fighting one of Team Rocket's mechas.

Dawn's Quilava

Dawn's Cyndaquil evolved into Quilava in SS024 in order to fight off a swarm of Ariados.

Other

Quilava first played a major role in Love, Pokémon Style! as Macy's Pokémon. She used it against Ash during the Silver Conference but was defeated by his Squirtle. Later in Tie One On!, she used it in her battle against Jackson, where it battled his Poliwhirl and won.

In Shocks and Bonds, Clark, a Trainer that likes to conduct battles like a symphony, used a Quilava and Charizard against Ash's Grovyle and Glalie. Despite the type disadvantage, Ash's Grovyle defeated Clark's Quilava.

A Quilava was used by one of two twin brothers in The Champ Twins! in a battle against Ash and Dawn. The other twin used Croconaw.

Minor appearances

Quilava first appeared as a cameo in the episode You're A Star, Larvitar where Ash witnessed a Trainer training with his Quilava for the Silver Conference and also considered for a short time of getting his Cyndaquil to evolve as a way of training it for the Silver Conference following Cyndaquil's defeat against Satchel's Magby.

A Quilava appeared in Deceit and Assist under the ownership of a Pokémon Coordinator during the Hoenn Grand Festival.

A Quilava appeared in Not on MY Watch Ya Don't!.

In the manga

Quilava as it appears in The Golden Boys

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Main article: Exbo

Gold's Cyndaquil of the Gold, Silver & Crystal chapter in Pokémon Adventures evolved into Quilava during a training session at the Day Care Center outside of Goldenrod City. It then became massively more powerful than it was in its previous form, and defeated many of the Johto Team Rocket Grunts' Pokémon for Gold. After being used in Gold's battle with his rival Silver in the ruins of Ecruteak City, it spent several weeks captive inside one of Gold's Poké Balls and evolved simultaneously with Silver's Croconaw and Megaree. In its fully evolved form, it berthed itself even more in battle for the boy.

In the Pokémon Gold and Silver: The Golden Boys manga

Black borrowed a Quilava in a tournament in Let's Use Fighting Type Pokémon!!.

Trivia

  • Quilava shares the same species name with Typhlosion and Entei. They are all known as the Volcano Pokémon.
  • Despite what several Pokédex entries may imply, Quilava is not immune to Fire-type moves unless it has its Hidden Ability, Flash Fire.
  • Quilava remains in this stage of evolution for 22 levels, tying with Monferno for the longest that the first evolution of a starter Pokémon takes to reach its final form. Coincidentally both are Fire-type.
  • Not counting Pikachu, Quilava and its evolutionary line are the only starter Pokémon line in the Yellow color group.
  • Quilava and its evolutionary line can learn Iron Tail via TM23 in Generation II, but it can't learn it in later generations with the same TM.

Origin

Its appearance is similar to most animals in the Mustela genus, although it is most likely a stoat based on its lack of a tail and the fur on its upper body being significantly darker than that on its underbelly. Its appearance is also quite close to a Paca, a South American rodent with a slender body, spotted skin and tiny ears.

Name origin

Quilava is a combination of quill (a needle-like hair) and lava (extrusive molten rock).

Magmarashi is a combination of magma and 山荒 yama-arashi (porcupine).
