Typhlosion (Japanese: バクフーン Bakufuun) is the Fire-type Starter Pokémon of the Johto region, evolved from Quilava and Cyndaquil. It has the highest total base stat of all the Johto Starters.


Typhlosion looks like a wolverine with a mane of spiky flames around it's neck. Unlike it's other evolutions, it has a more badger-like appearance. It is mostly yellow with a turquoise back.

Special abilities

Typhlosion has the ability Blaze and the Dream World ability Flash Fire. Blaze raises Fire-type moves when Typhlosion's HP is low while Flash Fire powers up Fire-type moves when hit by one instead of taking damage.


Typhlosion is the evolved form of Quilava as of level 36. Typhlosion is the final form of Cyndaquil.

In the anime

Jimmy has a Typhlosion in the anime in The Legend of Thunder!. Two Typhlosions also in AG015: Gonna Rule the School! and AG055: Poetry Commotion respectively.
