Pokédex data

Typhlosion - Volcano Pokémon
No. Height Weight

Pokédex entry
If its rage peaks, it becomes so hot that anything it touches will instantly go up in flames.


  • The initial Japanese print run saw Typhlosion's attack damage listed as "60". This was eventually corrected to "60+", but not until late into the print run, making the erroneous version much more common.


Flame Burst is a move introduced in the Generation V Pokémon games that Typhlosion can learn via breeding, however the Japanese names are not the same, making this attack and the move unrelated. This card's English Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Gold, whereas the Japanese entry comes from Pokémon Silver.
