Vulpix (ロコン, Rokon) is a creature in the Pokémon media franchise.


Vulpix is a Fire-type Pokémon introduced in Pokémon Red and Blue, though it was exclusive to Blue, acting as the equivalent to Growlithe in Red. Vulpix is categorized within the Pokédex at #037 as the "Fox Pokémon", and it evolves into Ninetales with the help of a Fire Stone.

Several Generation I Pokémon alternatively had Alolan regional variants, introduced in Pokémon Sun and Moon. They are adapted to a specific habitat in Alola, differing from their region of origin, Kanto, requiring aesthetic and type changes — among those was Vulpix, exclusive to Pokémon Sun and Ultra Sun, inversely becoming an Ice-type Pokémon and requiring an Ice Stone to evolve. An Alolan Vulpix nicknamed "Snowy" is featured in the Sun and Moon animated series as Lillie's first Pokémon.

The regular Vulpix's attack resembles Ember, while Alolan Vulpix's attack resembles Icy Wind or Frost Breath.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

As a Poké Ball Pokémon[edit]

The original form of Vulpix is one of its two forms that appear in Ultimate. Once summoned, it will attack fighters similar to how Fennekin attacked with Incinerate in Super Smash Bros. 4.

The Alolan form of Vulpix is one of its two forms that appear in Ultimate. Once summoned, it will attack fighters by blowing a gust of chilling air towards its target, inflicting damage and temporarily freezing them once they come into contact with the attack, similar to the Ice Climbers' Blizzard.


Both forms of Vulpix appear as spirits.
