Cyndaquil (JP) is a species of Pokémon in the series of the same name. It is a Fire-type Pokémon that made its first appearance in the second generation games Gold and Silver. It evolves into Quilava starting at level 16. It is one of the starter Pokémon for the Johto region, as well as in Pokémon Legends: Arceus.

Physiology and Behavior

Cyndaquil is a small, bipedal Pokémon with bluish fur on top of its body and cream-colored fur on its underside. Its eyes are usually seen closed, and it has a long, thin snout. Its arms are short, but its legs are slightly more developed and have a single nail on each foot. On its back are four red circles that can erupt into flames. When the flames are burning, its back seems to be covered in spines. Cyndaquil is capable of defending itself using these flames, and the fire grows more powerful as it becomes angry or defensive. However, if it is tired, the flames are not able to burn properly. It is usually timid by nature and often curls into a ball when intimidated. Though rare in the wild, it can be found living on grasslands.
