===Origins===
 
Vulpix's name is a combination of [[wikipedia:Vulpes|Vulpes]], Latin for fox, and six, referring to its six tails. The rok in Rokon may be derived from roku, six; the kon may be derived from 'grudge' which refers to the curse that Vulpix and Ninetales may cast on their foes. This is also reflected in Vulpix, which learns Grudge. Kon may also refer to the Japanese onomatopoeia kon kon which is the sound that foxes make. Furthermore, a konko is a gas burner stove.

Vulpix are based upon foxes. Though in Japan there are legends concerning foxes (or kitsune as they are called there). One such legend which is most relevant to Vulpix is how multi-tailed kitsune can breathe [[fire]], create illusions and have extremely long lives. After having concluded their lifecycle, these creatures take on a spirit form, which may have been the reason why Vulpix and [[Ninetales]] can learn {{Type|Ghost}}-type moves.

Vulpix (Japanese: ロコン Rokon) is a Fire-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

BiologyEdit

PhysiologyEdit

Vulpix are fox-like Pokémon with reddish-brown fur. Vulpix's most distinctive feature is its six orange tails that are curled at the tips. According to the Pokédex, when it is born, Vulpix possesses one snow white tail that eventually splits into many tails as it grows older. On the top of its head, Vulpix have a tuft of bright orange fur atop their heads that curls into three rolls at the top and falls over its forehead at the bottom. Its underbelly is cream-colored. Vulpix appear to be feminine Pokémon in general, and females are more commonly found in the wild than males.

Additionally, a shiny Vulpix has a golden color scheme as opposed to its original red-brown. Also, Vulpix do not have any differences in appearance between genders.

Special abilities Edit

All Vulpix have the ability Flash Fire, which powers up its Fire-type moves when hit by any Fire-type move and makes it immune to Fire-type attacks.

According to the Pokédex, Vulpix have a flame inside their body that never goes out. This presumably gives it the ability to use fire attacks such as Flamethrower.

Evolution Edit

Vulpix evolves into Ninetales by use of a Fire Stone.

AppearancesEdit

In the animeEdit

Main article: Suzy's Vulpix
Vulpix and Brock

Brock's Vulpix given to him by Suzy.

Vulpix first debuted in the episode Pokémon Fashion Flash under the ownership of a Pokémon Breeder named Suzy. Other Vulpix have infrequently appeared in the anime when compared to that of other Pokémon.

Brock's VulpixEdit

Brock had Suzy's Vulpix early on in the anime series in the aforementioned episode Pokémon Fashion Flash. Brock received it from the Pokémon Breeder named Suzy. While Brock did not use this Vulpix frequently in battle, he was often seen taking care of it, usually grooming it. In the episode Beauty and the Breeder, Brock returned the Vulpix back to Suzy.

TriviaEdit

  • Vulpix's original name was "Foxfire".
  • Despite being able to learn Energy Ball via breeding, Vulpix cannot learn it via a TM. This has been fixed as of Generation V.
  • Vulpix, along with its evolution, Ninetales, is the only non-Ghost-type to learn Grudge and Will-O-Wisp by leveling up.
  • Vulpix is often considered to be Growlithe's counterpart as they are both Fire-type Pokémon and are version-exclusive Pokémon.

OriginsEdit

Vulpix's name is a combination of Vulpes, Latin for fox, and six, referring to its six tails. The rok in Rokon may be derived from roku, six; the kon may be derived from 'grudge' which refers to the curse that Vulpix and Ninetales may cast on their foes. This is also reflected in Vulpix, which learns Grudge. Kon may also refer to the Japanese onomatopoeia kon kon which is the sound that foxes make. Furthermore, a konko is a gas burner stove.

Vulpix are based upon foxes. Though in Japan there are legends concerning foxes (or kitsune as they are called there). One such legend which is most relevant to Vulpix is how multi-tailed kitsune can breathe fire, create illusions and have extremely long lives. After having concluded their life cycle, these creatures take on a spirit form, which may have been the reason why Vulpix and Ninetales can learn Ghost-type moves.

The fire-type Pokémon Vulpix is also based on the Fennec Fox in the genus Vulpes. The only characteristics taken from the genus Vulpes would be that it's a fire-type, it resembles a fox, and it's fur is fashionable.

Eevee is also based on the Fennec Fox for the fact that Eevee has large ears, is treated like a pet, and it's fur is prized. Flareon resembles Vulpix in a few ways.

The Fennec Fox lives in Africa, it's adapted to a high-temperature, low-water, desert environment, which explains why Flareon and Vulpix are fire-type.

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 and Vulpix have rich, royal, and fashionable looking fur coats. It also explains why Flareon and Vulpix are treated like pets.
