Moltres (Japaneseファイヤー Fire) is a dual-type Fire/Flying Legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

Along with Articuno and Zapdos, it is one of the three Legendary birds of Kanto.

Biology

 

Moltres is a large, avian Pokémon with orange or golden plumage. It has a long, flowing head crest and a billowing tail, both made of flames. Additionally, its wings are also shrouded in fiery plumage. Its straight, pointed beak is brown, as are its anisodactyl feet. It has short talons.

Moltres sheds embers with every flap of its wings, composing a brilliant flash of flames. By dipping itself into the magma of an active volcano, this Pokémon can heal itself. It migrates to the south with the coming of spring, and is said to bring an early springtime to cold lands. Moltres is rarely seen by Trainers.

Moltres in Super Smash Bros.
 
Moltres in Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Super Smash Bros.

Moltres made a cameo appearance in the Saffron City stage. Very rarely, it will fly by in the background.

Super Smash Bros. Melee/Brawl/3DS/Wii U

When released from a Poké Ball, Moltres will remain where it is released, flapping its wings. It will then use Sky Attack in Melee or Fly in Brawl to leave the arena. Any opponent that touches it will receive a sizable amount of damage. Moltres is the only Legendary bird to return in Brawl.

Trophy information

Melee

As tradition has it, the onset of spring heralds the return of this legendary Pokémon from its southern home. Its bright orange color and fiery aspect lends to its overwhelming appearance. Sky Attack, the strongest of flying moves, is a perfect fit for this burning phenom, but it obviously also excels at powerful Fire-type moves.

Brawl

"A Flame Pokémon. It's one of the legendary bird Pokémon. When Moltres appears in a town, it is said that spring will come earlier there than in other towns. If Moltres is injured, it apparently returns to a volcano to heal its wings with magma. Moltres spreads its wide, flame-covered wings and attacks opponents with the exciting and highly damaging Sky Attack."

3DS/Wii U
 
Moltres in Super Smash Bros. for 3DS.

NAThis Fire/Flying-type Pokémon is one of three Legendary birds in the Kanto region. It will use Fly when called into a Smash Bros. battle, flapping its orange wings and sending fire out around it. Getting hit hurts and could launch you so far, you'd make Moltres jealous. That isn't a good thing...

PALMoltres is one of the three Legendary Bird Pokémon of the Kanto region, along with Articuno and Zapdos. When spreading its huge wings and taking flight, it can make the flames all over its body burn even brighter. If you get hit by those flames during its Fly attack, you might go flying even further than Moltres!

Trivia

Origin

Moltres may be based on legends of firebirds such as the phoenix, the Slavic firebird, or the Bennu. It may also be based on the Japanese mythical bird known as 朱雀 Suzaku, guardian of the South, which is not a true phoenix. It may also be based on a heron, because of their similarities in shape.

Name origin

Moltres is a combination of molten and tres (Spanish for three, indicating that it is the third in the series of Kanto Legendary birds). It may also derive from molt.

Fire is literally fire.
