History

Diamond & Pearl series

Cyndaquil's Egg
As a Cyndaquil

In An Egg Scramble!, Dawn battled Lyra in the Johto Festival and defeated her. As a prize, Dawn was given an Egg, which was soon abducted by Team Rocket. While it was in Team Rocket's possession, it showed signs of hatching. When Dawn finally got it back, it hatched right in front of her eyes, revealing it to be a Cyndaquil.

In Gone With the Windworks!, it battled Ash's Grotle and proved to be a strong opponent even though it had just hatched.

In Dressed for Jess Success!, it showed its interest in Contests after watching Dawn practice with her Mamoswine by trying to mimic it with the flames on its back. It was shocked and upset when Dawn told it that it couldn't perform in a Contest with her.

In Bagged Then Tagged!, it was used in Dawn's and Ash's Tag Battle against Lyra and Khoury. It was able to defeat Chikorita with a Flame Wheel combined with Ash's Monferno's Flamethrower.

In Double-Time Battle Training!, it was used in a Double Battle together with Dawn's Mamoswine. After using the "Flame Ice" combo, it failed to execute it all of the way and Zoey's Leafeon defeated it, along with Mamoswine with a Magical Leaf combined with Kirlia's Psychic.

Cyndaquil was used in the Daybreak Town Contest Double Battle Round alongside Mamoswine in Playing the Performance Encore!. Both of them managed to defeat Ursula's Plusle and Minun in the finals earning Dawn her fifth and final Ribbon.

In Last Call — First Round!, Cyndaquil was used in the Performance Stage of the Sinnoh Grand Festival along with Buneary. Their performance started with Buneary using Ice Beam to create a large frozen path resembling a roller coaster. Cyndaquil proceeded with Flame Wheel, rolling over the path and melting a trench for Buneary to slide on. After that, Buneary charged an Ice Beam and Cyndaquil used Smokescreen in order to cloak themselves above a large frozen spike. When the smoke was blown away, Buneary was seen inside a Poké Ball made of ice with Cyndaquil standing on top, impressing the judges and securing Dawn a place among the Coordinators advancing to the Contest Battles. Later, in Coming Full-Festival Circle!, it went up against Jessilina's Seviper and Carnivine in the semifinals of the Grand Festival along with Buneary. Together they managed to defeat their opponents and advance Dawn to the final round.

Dawn and Quilava

In SS024, it was used in a battle against Johanna's Glameow and Umbreon, but when Piplup and Cyndaquil unleashed their Whirlpool-Flame Wheel combination; the battle was stopped due to them fighting. Cyndaquil then helped Dawn rescue a Piplup and a Chimchar that had escaped from Professor Rowan's lab from a group of Ariados. It became injured when it took a Poison Sting meant for Shinko. It was able to overcome its injury by evolving into Quilava. It was able to defeat the leader of the group, a Shiny Ariados, with its newly learned move, Eruption.

Best Wishes series

Quilava was introduced to Ash, Iris and Cilan's Pokémon in Piplup, Pansage, and a Meeting of the Times!. It brushed up to Ash, both saying hello and revealing to him that it had evolved.

In Goodbye, Junior Cup - Hello Adventure!, it battled Ash's Pikachu. Quilava first hit Pikachu with Swift before dodging his Quick Attack and stopping Electro Ball with its newly revealed Flamethrower attack. Quilava then covered the field in Smokescreen before stopping Pikachu's Iron Tail and landing a direct hit with Flamethrower. After their Flame Wheel and Quick Attack clashed in mid-air, Cynthia stopped the match.

Personality and characteristics

As a Cyndaquil showing its rivalry with Piplup

Since it was hatched as an Egg, Quilava instantly had a strong bond towards Dawn. Prior to its Contest debut, as shown in Dressed for Jess Success!, Quilava as a Cyndaquil had developed a love for Contests often showing Dawn its own variations of the moves that she was practicing with her other Pokémon, and sulked when it wasn't picked.

Dawn's Piplup appears to be jealous over the attention that it gets, though this may be attributed to the fact that Cyndaquil wasn't very responsive to Piplup at first. Piplup often attacks it and it in turn fights back, causing frequent squabbles between the two. They seem to be trying to compete for superiority over the other. These fights have stopped ever since Cyndaquil evolved.

It has a tendency to flare up its back when it's happy or when it's showing affection, which Dawn usually ends up getting caught in in the process.
