Template:PokémonPrevNext/Head Template:PokémonPrevNext/GO Template:PokémonPrevNext/Pokémon Template:PokémonPrevNext/Disambig |} Template:Pokémon Infobox Cyndaquil (Japanese: ヒノアラシ Hinoarashi) is a Template:Type Template:OBP introduced in Generation II.

It evolves into Template:P starting at level 14, which evolves into Template:P starting at level 36.

Along with Template:P and Template:P, Cyndaquil is one of the three starter Pokémon of Johto available at the beginning of Template:Game5.

Biology

Cyndaquil is a small, bipedal Pokémon with bluish fur on top of its body, and a milky color on the underside. Cyndaquil seems to be a composite of features from the Template:Wp and the shrew. The echidna features are the flames from its back, while its general body shape is shrew-like. Its eyes are often closed and it has a long, thin snout. It lacks claws on its forelimbs, but has a single claw on each hind foot. Cyndaquil is usually timid by nature and often curls into a ball when intimidated. It has four red spots on its back from which its flames erupt. Cyndaquil is capable of defending itself using these flames. The fire grows more powerful as Cyndaquil becomes more angry or defensive. Though rare in the wild, few can be found living on Template:DL.

Ash's Cyndaquil

Ash Ketchum captured a Template:AP in Good 'Quil Hunting. During its early days on Ash's team, Cyndaquil was easily tired-out (e.g. waiting a while for the flames on its back to ignite so it could use Template:Type attacks). Eventually, Cyndaquil overcame its shortcomings. Ash left his Cyndaquil, along with the rest of his Johto team (save for Template:P), at Template:An's lab when he set out for Hoenn. Later, Ash called Cyndaquil back into his party for the Sinnoh League in An Old Family Blend!. It evolved into Template:P after a battle with Template:TRT's mecha.

Trivia

  • Cyndaquil is the only Fire-type starter Pokémon that retains a pure Fire type throughout its entire evolutionary line.

Origin

Its appearance is based on the Template:Wp, but it also has traits of Template:Wps, and Template:Wp, such as its long snout, and its closed eyes may be a reference to baby Template:Wps, as its Template:P is based on one. When its fire is lit, the fire resembles the quills of the Template:Wp.

Name origin

Cyndaquil is a combination of cinder (ashes) and quill (referring to needle-like hairs).

Hinoarashi may be a combination of 火 hi (fire) and 山荒 yama-arashi (Template:Wp). It can be taken to mean 火の嵐 hi no arashi (storm of fire).
