Pokemon Cyndaquil

By Anonymous

All regions must have starter Pokemon, otherwise it would be extremely hard to get a first Pokemon for the new trainers. In the Johto region trainers can get their starters from the Pokemon Professor, Elm. Professor Elm will, much like the other regions, give the new trainers a Pokemon at level five. They can choose a fire type Pokemon, a grass type Pokemon, or a water type Pokemon.

Trainers can only choose one of these to be their first and starter Pokemon. Professor Elm will give a trainer the water type Pokemon Totodile, the grass type Pokemon Chikorita, or the fire type Pokemon Cyndaquil. You choose the fire type Cyndaquil. Cyndaquil can get some attacks at low levels that can help you out, such as Tackle, Ember, and Smokescreen. Tackle is a generic normal type attack. Ember is a weak fire type attack that actually is powerful against low level Pokemon. And Smokescreen is an attack that lower’s the opponents accuracy.

Accuracy, as a term for battle, is the chance of an attack actually hitting the opponent’s Pokemon. If the accuracy is lowered there is a chance of the attack missing, and the Pokemon with the lowered accuracy basically wasn’t able to do anything that turn. Everything is pretty easygoing with Cyndaquil. The biggest problem that you will encounter on the start of your journey is probably the first gym. Don’t be alarmed, the second gym has bug type Pokemon, which Cyndaquil can defeat easily. Anyway the first gym is using Flying type Pokemon.

Johto Starters and Evolutions: The Cyndaquil Line

By Jo

It’s timid, unsure of itself, and a bit strange looking when you first glance at it. Cyndaquil, the Fire Mouse Pokemon, is the Johto region’s fire-type starter. According to its pokedex entries, Cyndaquil like to curl themselves into balls or stay hunched over. When feeling threatened or angry, their backs burst into flame for protection and to intimidate their foes.

Cyndaquil are shy and timid, often hiding and being unaware of their power. As of the fifth generation, Cyndaquil is the only fire-type starter that doesn’t gain another type upon evolution. It is also the only starter whose color scheme is not primarily orange and red (its shiny form, though, is a coppery color). Cyndaquil as well as Chimchar are the only two Pokemon who evolve at level 14, the lowest level a starter Pokemon can evolve at. Cyndaquil is based off from the echidna, which has hedgehog-like quills and a thin mouth like an anteater. Cyndaquil’s name comes from the words ‘cinder’, which means ashes, and ‘quill’.

A Teenager’s View On Quilava

By Matt

It would be really hard to guess someone’s favorite Pokemon, seeing as there are at least 500, including the new Unova region. The Pokemon I would like to share with you today is Quilava, also known as Magumarashi in the Japanese versions of Pokemon. It’s always been a favorite for me since childhood. There’s really no possible explanation I can offer. I remember when I first looked at that Quilava Pokemon card. It gave me some sort of feeling to hold on to it.
