Typhlosion (Japanese: バクフーン Bakphoon) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon.

It evolves from Quilava starting at level 36. It is the final form of Cyndaquil.

Biology

Typhlosion, in appearance, becomes much different than its pre-evolutions; however, some resemblances remain. For instance, it is both a biped and a quadruped, like Cyndaquil and Quilava, respectively. The fiery vents on its back disappear, making way for a new ring of them around its neck and shoulders.

Physiology

The fur of a Typhlosion is very coarse and highly flame-retardant, giving it an extreme resistance to heat and fire attacks. This may also be to keep it from injuring itself during battle when using attacks such as Flamethrower or Flame Wheel. It also seems to have very sharp claws with which it can use Crush Claw.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

When a Typhlosion's health drops in battle, the Blaze ability comes into play. This gives its Template:Type2 attacks a boost of 1.5 times their normal power. Typhlosion can generate enough heat to make any object go up in flames when angered. Its Flame Wheel is second to none.

Behavior

Habitat

Typhlosion make their nests along mountainsides and heated grasslands. However, they are rarely found in the wild, with the majority being evolved from a Cyndaquil that Professor Elm gives to the Johto region's beginning Trainers.

Diet

Typhlosion have several sharp canine teeth along their gumlines, suggesting a carnivorous diet.

In the anime

Typhlosion's first appearance was in the The Legend of Thunder! special, under the ownership of Jimmy. It was his starter Pokémon, which he got as a Cyndaquil from Professor Elm.

The Volcano Pokémon also appeared in Gonna Rule The School at the Pokémon Trainer's School where it made its main series debut.

Typhlosion appeared again in Poetry Commotion under the ownership of Mr. Moore, Flannery's grandfather.

In the manga

Gold's Quilava evolved into Typhlosion to protect Silver, Crystal, and himself from Lugia.

Trivia

  • Typhlosion is the only final form of a Template:Type2 starter Pokémon that does not have two types: Charizard is Fire/Flying while both Blaziken and Infernape are Fire/Fighting.
    • Typhlosion is also one of only two final form Fire-type Pokémon that has undergone two evolutions and does not have a secondary type, the other being Magmortar.
  • Typhlosion has the same base stat values as Charizard.
  • Just like Cyndaquil's and Quilava's, Typhlosion's Template:Shiny2 sprite (in Gold, Silver and Crystal) had a purple flame. This was changed to orange beginning with Generation III.
  • Typhlosion is the only final form of a Fire-type starter Pokémon that can only learn Flare Blitz by breeding. Charizard, Blaziken and Infernape learn it by leveling up.
  • Though it is a bipedal Pokémon, its body style is shared with quadrupedal Pokémon.
  • The Generation 4 backsprite has small and dark spots.

Origin

The appearance of this Pokémon is based on a badger or wolverine.

Name origin

Typhlosion's name is a combination of typhoon and explosion. It's name is also similar to the word typhus, a Greek word meaning 'hazy' (which would describe the effect that the intense heat Typhlosion generates has on the air surrounding it), and may also be related to tephra, volcanic material. The first three syllables of its Japanese name spell 爆風 bakufū, blast, and the second part comes directly from typhoon.

In other languages

  • German: Tornupto - From tornado and eruption.
  • French: Typhlosion
  • Korean: 블레이범 Blaibom - A portmanteau of "blaze," and possibly "bomb."
