Cyndaquil (Japaneseヒノアラシ Hinoarashi) is a Fire-type Pokémon introduced in Generation II.

It evolves into Quilava starting at level 14, which evolves into Typhlosion starting at level 36.

Along with Chikorita and Totodile, Cyndaquil is one of the three starter Pokémon of Johto available at the beginning of Pokémon Gold, SilverCrystalHeartGold, and SoulSilver.

Biology

 

Cyndaquil is a small, bipedal Pokémon with bluish fur on top of its body, and a milky color on the underside. Cyndaquil seems to be a composite of features from the echidna and the shrew. The echidna features are the flames from its back, while its general body shape is shrew-like. Its eyes are often closed and it has a long, thin snout. It lacks claws on its forelimbs, but has a single claw on each hind foot. Cyndaquil is usually timid by nature and often curls into a ball when intimidated. It has four red spots on its back from which its flames erupt. Cyndaquil is capable of defending itself using these flames. The fire grows more powerful as Cyndaquil becomes more angry or defensive. Though rare in the wild, few can be found living on grasslands.

In the anime

Major appearances

Ash's Cyndaquil

 
Cyndaquil in the anime

Ash Ketchum captured a Cyndaquil in Good 'Quil Hunting. During its early days on Ash's team, Cyndaquil was easily tired-out (e.g. waiting a while for the flames on its back to ignite so it could use Fire-type attacks). Eventually, Cyndaquil overcame its shortcomings. Ash left his Cyndaquil, along with the rest of his Johto team (save for Pikachu), at Professor Oak's lab when he set out for Hoenn. Later, Ash called Cyndaquil back into his party for the Sinnoh League in An Old Family Blend!. It evolved into Quilava after a battle with Team Rocket's mecha.

Trophy information

Cyndaquil frighten easily, so they're often found curled up in balls. When threatened, they flare the flames on their backs to drive off enemies. Cyndaquil was one of the three Pokémon that Trainers could choose from at the beginning of Pokémon Silver, Gold, and Crystal. No one knows if their eyes are open.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Cyndaquil is not a Poké Ball item anymore. It is only a trophy.

Trophy information

"A Fire Mouse Pokémon. It's a timid creature that often curls up into a ball. When threatened, it flares up the flames on its back to scare off enemies. When it's angry, it can produce powerful flames, but when it's tired, it has trouble producing fire and suffers from incomplete combustion. When it levels up, it evolves into Quilava. Its squinty eyes are adorable."

Trivia

  • Cyndaquil is the only Fire-type starter Pokémon that retains a pure Fire type throughout its entire evolutionary line.

Origin

Its appearance is based on the echidna, but it also has traits of shrews, and tenrecs, such as its long snout, and its closed eyes may be a reference to baby honey badgers, as its fully evolved form is based on one. When its fire is lit, the fire resembles the quills of the porcupine.

Name origin

Cyndaquil is a combination of cinder (ashes) and quill (referring to needle-like hairs).

Hinoarashi may be a combination of 火 hi (fire) and 山荒 yama-arashi (porcupine). It can be taken to mean 火の嵐 hi no arashi (storm of fire).
