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.

In Galar, Moltres has a dual-type Dark/Flying regional form that was introduced in The Crown Tundra expansion of the Pokémon Sword and Shield Expansion Pass.

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

Biology

 
A Moltres feather

Moltres is a large, avian Pokémon with golden plumage. It has a long, flowing head crest and a billowing tail, both made of reddish-orange and yellow flames. Additionally, its wings are also shrouded in fiery plumage. When using its the wings, they gain a dazzling red glow. It has a long, thin neck, a pointed, brown beak, and small, triangular eyes. Its thin, brown legs have feet that have three forward-facing toes and one backward-facing toe. 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. There have been stories of Moltres using its wings to assist those lost in the mountains. Moltres is rarely seen. In the past, Sky Attack was its signature move.

In Galar, Moltres has a similar build, but a drastically different color scheme. Its body is primarily black with scarlet highlights and bright blue eyes. Its scarlet beak is hooked at the tip and leads to markings that run down its front and behind its head. Its feet are also scarlet with black talons. Its wings, crest, and tail are mostly black, with the crest having an extra curl at the front and the tail being split in two, and all three of these features exude a magenta, flame-like energy that earns it the name of its Kantonian counterpart.

The sinister energy that blazes from within its body is so oppressive that most Pokémon can't even approach it. Galarian Moltres attacks by spreading its wings wide to unleash its energy in a powerful aura that attacks the minds of its foes, inflicting deep fatigue as it burns away their energy from within. The aura has the power to consume the spirit of its victims, reducing them to burned-out shadows of themselves. It is said to have a haughty personality and a calm demeanor. It appears in the Crown Tundra once every few decades to reach Dyna Tree Hill.[1]

Galarian Moltres is the only Pokémon that can learn the move Fiery Wrath.

Moltres in Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Super Smash Bros./Ultimate

Moltres makes 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."

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!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Moltres returns as a Pokémon summoned from the Poké Ball, retaining its behavior from past games. It also appears as a Spirit alongside Articuno and Zapdos.

Trivia

  • Kantonian Moltres shares its category with CharmeleonCharizardFlareon, and Infernape. They are all known as the Flame Pokémon.
  • Moltres, alongside the other two Legendary birds, had an Australian Beetle named after it, named Binburrum moltres.
  • Peony describes Galarian Moltres as "...barely lukewarm!" This comment is likely there to explain how it is no longer a Fire-type.

Origin

Moltres seems to be based on the 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. In addition, it may be based on a heron because of their similarities in body shape.

Galarian Moltres appears to resemble a cormorant.

Name origin

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

Fire is literally fire.
