Vulpix (Japanese: ロコン Rokon, German: Vulpix, French: Goupix) is a Fire-type Pokémon.

Name origin

Vulpix's name is a combination of vulpis, Latin for fox, and six, refering to its six tails. The rok in Rokon may be derived from 六 roku, six; the kon may be derived from 恨, grudge which refers to the curse that Vulpix and Ninetales may cast on their foes. This is also reflected in Vulpix, which learns Grudge. Kon may also refer to the Japanese onomatopoeia kon kon which is the sound that foxes make.

Vulpix, like Ninetales, are based on foxes. However, in Japan there are certain legends concerning foxes, or kitsune, as they are known there. One such legend which relates to Vulpix the most is how many-tailed foxes can breathe fire, create illusions, and have extremely long lifespans. After living a long time, these creatures take on spirit forms, which may be the reason why these two related Pokémon can learn Ghost-type moves.
