Vulpix info

Everything you need to know about Vulpix

Vulpix's name comes from the Latin for fox (vulpes) and "six" for its six tails.

Vulpix has six tails, while its evolution Ninetails has nine (surprising, I know.)

Vulpix is obviously based on a fox. There are many Japanese legends surrounding foxes (kitsune), many of which describe foxes as tricksters, shape-shifters, and fire-breathers.

Original KFC Pokemon Plush promo

Vulpix was one of the first Pokemon (along with Seel, Dratini, and Zubat) to be included in a Pokemon fast food promo toy line. These plushes were available at KFC for $4.99. Since they were released before Pokemon exploded in popularity in the United States, the plushes are quite rare and hard to find today, and are a hot collectable among die-hard Pokemon fans.
