Typhlosion (Japanese: バクフーン - Bakufun), the Volcano Pokémon, is the last stage in the evolutionary chain of the Generation II Fire type starter, Cyndaquil. It is the sixth Pokémon in the Johto Pokédex.
Typhlosion has the ability Blaze. This means that once Typhlosion's HP is less than a third all Fire type moves are 50% stronger. A second Ability is available to Typhlosion that come from the Dream World, the Flash Fire Ability. With this Ability, should it get hit by a Fire-Type move (including Fire-Type Hidden Power), the Ability activates, increasing the power of its Fire-Type Attacks by 50%.
Typhlosion is in the Egg Group Field, and will hatch after 5,355 steps. It will take a Typhlosion 1,059,860 experience to reach level 100.
Typhlosion takes the appearance of a dark blue and cream colored mammal.

 Game Information
 Original Games
Typhlosion is available as the final evolution of Cyndaquil in Pokémon Gold, Silver and Crystal, and subsequently Heart Gold and Soul Silver. If the player picks Cyndaquil as their starter Pokémon, their rival will eventually have Feraligatr as theirs; if the player picks Chikorita as their starter Pokémon, their rival will eventually have Typhlosion as theirs.
 Spin-off Games
Typhlosion appears at Endless Level 52, Forever Level 2 and Mr. Who's Den in Pokémon Trozei!
Typhlosion is available as an evolution in the first two waves of Mystery Dungeon games if the player or their partner becomes Cyndaquil. Additionally, Typhlosion appears at Dark Crater DPB6-B9 & DPB11-B14 in Explorers of Time, Explorers of Darkness and Explorers of Sky.
Typhlosion appears at Lila Forest in Pokémon Ranger, but Cut is required to reach it. Typhlosion returns in Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs as a Boss Pokémon, encountered at the top of Mt. Sorbet in the Present, and in the Past Missions A Scorching Shower of Flames and Graveler's Terrible Rocks by defeating it or one of its pre-evolved forms and obtaining its Slate. Defeating the boss in each level is the only way to find out which Pokémon is associated with each Slate, however.
 Trading Card Game
Typhlosion appears in a total of two different promos and 15 sets for a total of 17 different Typhlosion cards.
 Anime/Manga Information
Typhlosion’s first appearance in the animé was in the Pokémon Chronicles special, Legends of Thunder under ownership of the main character, Jimmy. Although the evolutions from Cyndaquil to Typhlosion were not actually seen (whereas the Quilava stage was only shown at a glimpse in the opening along with Cyndaquil and Typhlosion, all launching what appeared to be Flamethrower attacks), it is still Jimmy’s original starter Pokémon, giving it the star role, just behind Raikou. Typhlosion made one other appearance under care of the grandfather of the fourth Hoenn Gym Leader, Flannery – specifically named Mr. Moore – in the episode Poetry Commotion.
Typhlosion has yet to appear in any of the films as of writing.
No manga information as of yet
