Biological characteristics

When it is born, Vulpix has just one white tail but as Vulpix get older, this tail splits from its tip. Both its fur and tails are beautiful; as it grows larger, its coat grows even thicker and more luxurious. Inside Vulpix's body is supposedly a flame that burns and never goes out. During the daytime, when the temperature rises, this Pokémon releases flames from its mouth to prevent its body from getting too hot.


If attacked by an enemy stronger than itself, it feigns injury to fool the enemy, so that it can escape unharmed. It can freely control fire. Just before evolution, its six tails grow hot as if they are on fire. Vulpix is impervious to fire moves, as they also raise the power Vulpix's fire type attacks when struck.

In the Pokémon anime

Vulpix (right) in the anime.

In the Pokémon anime, Brock, the former gym leader of Pewter City and traveling companion of Ash Ketchum, is given a Vulpix by a Pokémon breeder named Suzy in episode "Pokémon Fashion Flash" (from season 1),[1] citing that he could take better care of her than she could, after which Vulpix became Brock's trademark Pokémon. She is voiced by Japanese voice actress, Rikako Aikawa and by Roxanne Beck in her debut and by Rachael Lillis all other appearences.[2] Later in the series (in the episode "Beauty and the Breeder"), he gave Vulpix back to Suzy. This annoyed many fans, as Vulpix had quickly become Brock's Pokémon of choice, being powerful enough to take on Pikachu in one-on-one training. Vulpix had several fights through her time being with Brock, and was considered by many to be Brock's "Pikachu", her signature attack being Fire Spin. Image File history File links Vulpix-Anime. ...
