Ninetales (Japanese: キュウコン Kyuukon) is a Fire-type Pokémon who evolves from Vulpix.

Appearance

Dream World Ninetales

Ninetales is a fox-like Pokémon that have nine tails, hence its name. They are mainly covered in a light, yellowish-cream-colored fur, while the tips of their nine tails are orange. On top of their head is a large tuft of hair, similar to its pre-evolved form though much more unruly.

Additionally, there are no gender differences between male and female Ninetales. The shiny version of Ninetales have silver-gray fur instead of its usual light cream fur, and its tails are tipped in blue.

Special abilities

All Ninetales have the ability Flash Fire, which powers up its Fire-type moves if it is hit by a fire-type attack. It also keeps it from getting damaged by fire attacks.

Evolution

Ninetales is the evolved form of Vulpix, who evolves into Ninetales by the use of a Fire Stone.

Origins

Ninetales appears to be based on a fox.

Its name, Ninetales means nine tails for that it does have nine tails.

Trivia

  • Ninetales tails are cursed, and pulling one will result in getting cursed.
  • Ninetales is based off of the legendary Kyuubi no Kitsune (九尾の狐 nine-tailed fox) of Japanese folklore. When a Kitsune gains its ninth tail, its fur changes from the dark red of a fox to white or golden, hence the color change for the evolution.
  • Ninetales are rarely ever male, like Vulpix.
  • If you put a female Ninetales in the daycare with a male Pokémon that knows Energy Ball, the hatched Vulpix will know Energy ball, despite not being able to learn Energy Ball from TMs.
  • Ninetales in the Game Boy Advance games didn't have the orange coloring on the tip of its tails.
  • In the Game Boy Advance games, shiny Ninetales' didn't have blue coloring on the tip of its tails, like its normal coloring.
  • Ninetales was mistakenly misspelled as "Ninetails" for the number of tails it possessed. This misspelling is also on the trading cards.
  • In the Pokédex, it is said that those who grab one of Ninetales's tails, they get cursed for 1000 years.
  • In Pokémon Mystery Dungeons Blue and Red, the Gengar was originaly a human that grabbed one of Ninetales' tails and was cursed into the form of a Gengar. Also the Gengar, before it turned into Gengar, had abandoned its Gardevoir, but the Gardevoir had no grudge against him, and it loved its trainer enough to protect it from Ninetales' fury.
