Flavor Text

Generation 5
Black, White

It controls balls of fire. As it grows, its six tails split from their tips to make more tails.

Black 2, White 2

As each tail grows, its fur becomes more lustrous. When held, it feels slightly warm.

Generation 6
X

When it is born, it has just one snow-white tail. The tail splits from its tip as it grows older.

Y

While young, it has six gorgeous tails. When it grows, several new tails are sprouted.

Omega Ruby

At the time of its birth, Vulpix has one white tail. The tail separates into six if this Pokémon receives plenty of love from its Trainer. The six tails become magnificently curled.

Alpha Sapphire

Inside Vulpix’s body burns a flame that never goes out. During the daytime, when the temperatures rise, this Pokémon releases flames from its mouth to prevent its body from growing too hot.

Generation 7
Moon

From its mouth spew flames that seem to resemble the spirits of the deceased. Some people mistakenly think this fire is a ghost.

Ultra Sun

Its beautiful tails have made it very popular. However, if it’s not brushed diligently, it will be a mass of tangles before you know it.
