Vulpix (Japanese: ロコン Rokon) is a Fire-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.



Vulpix are fox-like Pokémon with red-brown colored fur. Vulpix's most distinctive feature is its six tails that are curled at the tips. According to the Pokédex, its tails are actually one tail that splits multiple times as it grows older. On the top of its head, Vulpix have fur that curls into three rolls at the top and falls over its forehead at the bottom. Vulpix appear to be feminine Pokémon but can be found in the wild as male.

Additionally, a shiny Vulpix has a golden color scheme as opposed to its original red-brown. Also, Vulpix do not have any differences in appearance between genders.

Special abilities

All Vulpix have the ability Flash Fire, which powers up its Fire-type moves when hit by any Fire-type move and makes it immune to Fire-type attacks.

According to the Pokédex, Vulpix have a flame inside their body that never goes out. This presumably gives it the ability to use fire attacks such as Flamethrower.


Vulpix evolves into Ninetales by use of a Fire Stone.
