Typhlosion (Japanese: バクフーン Bakphoon) is a Fire-type Pokémon introduced in Generation II.

It evolves from Quilava starting at level 36. It is the final form of Cyndaquil.

Biology

Typhlosion is a Pokémon with a bulky, yet long and agile body. It is classified as a quadruped, but it is capable of bipedal movement. Most of its body is cream-colored, but its back and the top of its head are a dark green-blue. It has a short, rounded snout and small, triangular eyes and ears. When its mouth is open, its sharp canine teeth and thick tongue are visible. Each of its paws has three digits and there is a coarse, spiky fringe of fur along its rear. Across the back of its neck, there are several red spots that can produce fire. Typhlosion is capable of making anything go up in flames when angered and creating explosions by rubbing its fur together. The heat it generates when ready for battle creates a shimmering haze that can also be used to hide itself. Though it is rare in the wild, it can be found living on grasslands.

Major appearances

Jimmy's Typhlosion

Typhlosion debuted in The Legend of Thunder!, where it was Jimmy's starter Pokémon, which he got as a Cyndaquil from Professor Elm.

Other

In Poetry Commotion!, Mr. Moore sent out a Typhlosion to stop Team Rocket from making off with Flannery's Torkoal.

Minor appearances

Typhlosion made its main series debut in Gonna Rule The School!, where the Pokémon Trainers' School lent one to a student for use during a battle with a Feraligatr.

In The Power of Us, a Typhlosion was among the Pokémon that could be caught during the Pokémon Catch Race. Another was seen during a flashback.

GOTCHA!

A Typhlosion briefly appeared in GOTCHA!, under the ownership of Silver.

Typhlosion in Pokémon Adventures

Pokémon Adventures

Main article: Exbo

Gold's Quilava, nicknamed Exbo, evolved into a Typhlosion in Lively Lugia III to protect Silver, Crystal, and himself from Lugia. Afterwards, his larger size allowed him to be a method of faster travel (akin to Crystal's Arcanine), and with his increased power allowed Gold to hold his own and even overpower the Masked Man.

A Typhlosion appeared in Old Ultima Puts Them to the Test, under the ownership of Ultima. It was first seen displaying its Blaze Ability alongside her Meganium with its Overgrow. However, this act damaged much of the surrounding landscape, as well as a large girth of the ship nearby, earning the old woman much ire.

A Typhlosion appeared in Out-Odding Oddish, under the ownership of a Pokéathlon participant.

A Typhlosion appeared in GDZ67, under the ownership of a monk.

Trivia

Origin

Typhlosion has traits of badgers and weasels. Its thick body, long neck, small limbs, and short tail are similar to those of badgers of the Meles (genus) family while its bipedal stance and color pattern are more similar to those of the stoat.

Name origin

Typhlosion is a combination of typhoon and explosion. Its name is also similar to the word typhus, a Greek word meaning 'hazy' (which would describe the effect that the intense heat Typhlosion generates has on the air surrounding it), and it may also be related to tephra (volcanic material). It could also derive from Typhon, a monster in Greek mythology who fathered many other monsters with his wife, Echidna; Cyndaquil resembles an echidna. Alternatively, it could be a reference to Eulipotyphla, the mammal group containing shrews and hedgehogs.

Bakphoon is a combination of 爆風 bakufū (blast) and typhoon.
