Quilava (Japanese: マグマラシ Magmarashi) is a Fire-type Pokémon introduced in Generation II.

It evolves from Cyndaquil starting at level 14 (Generations II to VII, Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl) or level 17 (Legends: Arceus) and evolves into Typhlosion starting at level 36.

In Hisui, Quilava evolves into Hisuian Typhlosion starting at level 36.

Biology

 
Quilava without its flames lit

Quilava is a quadrupedal Pokémon with a long, slender body. The top half of its body is a dark blue-green, while its underside is cream-colored. It has triangular ears with dark red interiors, a rounded snout, and triangular red eyes. Each of its paws has three toes. It has five red spots on its body that can project flames: two arranged vertically on its forehead and three lined up horizontally on its rear.

Before a battle, Quilava turns its back so its flames face its opponent. It battles using these intense flames in combination with gusts of superheated air. Its own fur is non-flammable, which protects it from other fire attacks. Quilava tends to be rare in the wild, but can sometimes be found living on grasslands. The fur of Quilava is said to be very mysterious due to its immunity to fire. When exposed to the mysterious energy of Mount Coronet in Hisui, Quilava goes through a huge change. When it evolves into Hisuian Typhlosion, its gains at the power of Ghost-types.

Major appearances

Ash's Quilava

In An Old Family Blend!, Ash's Cyndaquil evolved into a Quilava after it fought one of Team Rocket's mechas. He later used it during his battle with Nando at the Lily of the Valley Conference, where it went up against Nando's Armaldo; the battle resulted in a tie.

Dawn's Quilava

In DPS01, Dawn's Cyndaquil evolved into a Quilava in order to fight off a swarm of Ariados. It later reunited with Ash in Piplup, Pansage, and a Meeting of the Times!.

Other

In You're A Star, Larvitar, Ash witnessed a Trainer training with a Quilava for the Silver Conference. He also briefly considered getting his Cyndaquil to evolve as a way of training it for the Silver Conference, following Cyndaquil's defeat against Satchel's Magby.

In Love, Pokémon Style!, Macy used a Quilava against Ash during the Silver Conference, but it was defeated by Squirtle's Hydro Pump. Later, in Tie One On!, it battled Jackson's Poliwhirl and won.

In Shocks and Bonds, Clark used a Quilava and Charizard against Ash's Grovyle and Glalie. Despite the type disadvantage, Ash's Grovyle defeated Clark's Quilava.

In The Champ Twins!, Ryan used a Quilava in a battle against Ash and Dawn alongside his twin brother Byan and his Croconaw. The twins were initially able to defeat Ash's Turtwig and Dawn's Piplup due to the latter two having a lack of teamwork, but they were defeated in the rematch.

Alternate World Dawn's Quilava appeared in a flashback in The Gates of Warp!, devolving into Cyndaquil due to Dialga's influence.

Trivia

  • Quilava shares its category with its evolved form and Entei. They are all known as the Volcano Pokémon.
    • Coincidentally, they all are capable of learning Eruption.
  • Quilava, Charmeleon, and their respective evolutionary lines have exactly the same base stats in the same distribution.
  • Jeff Kalles, who assisted in the naming of many Generation II Pokémon, suggested the English name for Quilava. According to Kalles, he suggested the name because Nintendo and The Pokémon Company wanted a Pokémon for every letter of the alphabet.[1][2]

Origin

Quilava's body is similar to most animals in the weasel family, particularly stoats due to its lack of a tail and the fur on its upper body being significantly darker than that on its underbelly with elements of a badger. However, the pattern distribution and shape of Quilava's flames closely resembles the quills and crest of the crested porcupine, especially in its earlier sprites. It may also be based on volcanoes due to its triangular profile when standing up and the ability to learn Smokescreen and Eruption.

Name origin

Quilava may be a combination of quill (a needle-like hair) and lava (extrusive molten rock).

Magmarashi may be a combination of magma and 山荒 yama-arashi (porcupine).
