Ninetales (Japaneseキュウコン Kyukon) is a Fire-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

It evolves from Vulpix when exposed to a Fire Stone.

In Alola, Ninetales has a dual-type Ice/Fairy regional form. It evolves from Alolan Vulpix when exposed to an Ice Stone.

Biology

Ninetales is a fox-like, quadrupedal Pokémon covered in thick, luxurious golden-white fur. It has a small mane of thicker fur around its neck and a long, fluffy crest atop its head. It has slender legs with three-toed paws and nine, long tails with pale orange tips. It has red eyes, pointed ears, and a triangular black nose.

While intelligent enough to easily understand human speech, Ninetales is a very vengeful Pokémon that has been known to curse those who mistreat it. It can live for 1,000 years due to the energy within its nine tails, each of which is said to have a different mystical power. Flames spewed from its mouth can hypnotize an opponent and its gleaming red eyes that are said to give it the ability to control minds. The anime has shown that it can swim. Being the result of an evolution via Evolution stone, Ninetales is rarely found in the wild, though they can be found in grasslands.

In the Alola region, Ninetales has a different appearance. Its coat is pale blue, and its fur is more flowing and wispier. The tips of its tails and crest, as well as the lower halves of its legs, are white. The crest on its head is longer and its nine tails are less distinct from each other. Finally, it has larger eyes, which are blue, and small tufts of fur in front of its ears.

Alolan Ninetales lives on Alola's snow-capped Mount Lanakila, which is considered by some to be important ground. As such, it is revered as a good messenger. Alolan Ninetales has a gentle temperament and is known to aid lost humans in distress, though this is primarily done to keep them out of its territory. It will punish any threat to its pack of Vulpix. It can produce ice crystals from its fur, which it can use for both offense and defense. The ice crystals can act as a shield or form balls that can be fired like bullets with enough force to shatter rock.[1]

Trivia

  • No other Pokémon has the same type combination as Alolan Ninetales.
    • Alolan Ninetales is also the only Ice-type Pokémon immune to Dragon-type moves.
  • Ninetales's name is misspelled as Ninetails in the Pokémon Trading Card Game for the Game Boy Color and in some prerelease material.
  • Ninetales and Vulpix share their category name with the Fennekin evolutionary line, Nickit, and Thievul. They are all known as the Fox Pokémon.

Origin

Ninetales may be based on a red fox and the 狐 kitsune of Japanese legend, which are said to have many tails, extremely long lifespans, and supernatural powers such as the ability to breath fire. After reaching an advanced age, kitsune take on spirit forms, which may explain why Ninetales can learn various Ghost-type and Psychic-type moves. Specifically, it may be based on the kyūbi no kitsune, whose fur turns white-gold after it has lived for 1,000 years and gains its ninth tail.

Alolan Ninetales may be based on an Arctic fox, which grows a white coat of fur in the winter to camouflage in the snow. Its mountain habitat and lore. It could also be inspired by tulikettu, a mythical fox creature of Finnish lore whose radiant fur is said to be responsible for the composition of the northern lights. The Finnish word for aurora, revontulet, also literally translates to "fox fires" which could be intentional as Ninetales' original form is Fire Type.

Name origin

Ninetales may be a combination of nine and tales, which itself may combine tails and fairy tales (alluding to it being based on a mythical creature). It may also reference the cat o' nine tails whip (due to its tendency to punish anyone who grabs its tails).

Kyukon may be a combination of 九 kyū (nine) and 恨 kon (grudge; from the curse it may cast on its foes), こんこん kon kon (the sound foxes make), コンロ konro (gas stove; relating to its Fire type), or 狐 ko (an alternate reading of kitsune; Japanese for fox). Alternatively, it can be read as 旧恨 kyūkon (old grudge).
