Flareon (Japanese: ブースター Buusutaa) is a Fire-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

## AppearanceEdit

Flareon is orange in color, with yellow on its tail, around its neck, and on its head. It has fox-like tail that appears to resemble flames.

Its appearance is based on the fennec. The fennec fox (Vulpes zerda) is a small nocturnal fox found in the Sahara of North Africa. Its most distinctive feature is unusually large ears, perfect explanation of why Flareon has large ears. The fennec is the smallest species of canid in the world; coat, ears and kidney functions have adapted to a high-temperature, low-water, desert environment, which explains why Flareon is a fire-type. In addition, its hearing is sensitive enough to hear prey moving underground. The species is usually assigned to the genus Vulpes; however, this is debated due to differences between the fennec fox and other fox species. The fennec's fur is prized by the indigenous peoples of North Africa, and in some parts of the world, the animal is considered an exotic pet, which explains why Flareon has a rich, royal, and fashionable looking fur coat around its neck.

Shiny Flareon have the same colors as it's pre-evolution, Eevee.

## Special abilitiesEdit

Flareon have the ability Flash Fire. Flash Fire allows Flareon's Attack to increase when it is hit by a Fire-type move. It has a flame sack in its body. Its body temperature can reach up to 1,650 degrees Fahrenheit before battle.

## EvolutionEdit

Flareon is one of the evolutions of Eevee that is caused by exposure to a Fire Stone.

## OriginEdit

Flaron's appearance is based on the fennec fox. However, this is debated due to differences between the fennec fox and other fox species. The fennec's fur is prized by the indigenous peoples of North Africa, and in some parts of the world, the animal is considered an exotic pet, which explains why Flareon has a rich, royal, and fashionable looking fur coat around its neck. It also explains why Flareon is treated like a pet.
