Ninetales is a fox-like Pokémon that have nine tails, hence its name. Resembling the nine-tailed fox kitsune, 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.

Ninetales is a fox-like Pokémon that possesses nine tails, hence its name. Resembling the nine-tailed kitsune fox of Japanese folklore, they are mainly covered in sleek, luxurious golden-white 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 and spiky. It has sinister red eyes which give it the ability to psychically control the minds of people and Pokémon. Its ears are pointed and distinctly fox-like, and it has slender legs with three-toed paws and no visible claws.
   
Additionally, there are no gender differences between male and female Ninetales. The [[shiny Pokémon|shiny]] version of Ninetales have silver-gray fur instead of its usual light cream fur, and its tails are tipped in blue.

Ninetales (Japanese: キュウコン Kyuukon) is a Fire-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

BiologyEdit

PhysiologyEdit

Ninetales

Dream World Ninetales

Ninetales is a fox-like Pokémon that possesses nine tails, hence its name. Resembling the nine-tailed kitsune fox of Japanese folklore, they are mainly covered in sleek, luxurious golden-white 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 and spiky. It has sinister red eyes which give it the ability to psychically control the minds of people and Pokémon. Its ears are pointed and distinctly fox-like, and it has slender legs with three-toed paws and no visible claws.

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

Special abilitiesEdit

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 grants immunity from Fire attacks. This does not apply to Dream World Ninetales, who instead possess the ability Drought, creating a permanent Sunny effect for the duration of the battle or until another weather-altering move or ability is used.

EvolutionEdit

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