Fire-type Pokémon
Fire Mouse Pokémon
Cyndaquil is a combination of cinder (ashes) and quill (referring to needle-like hairs). Hinoarashi could be taken to mean 火の嵐 (storm of fire) but it is likely to also derive from 山荒 yama-arashi (porcupine).

Along with Chikorita and Totodile, Cyndaquil is one of the three starter Pokémon of Johto available at the beginning of Pokémon Gold, Silver, Crystal, HeartGold, and SoulSilver.

Cyndaquil is small, bipedal Pokémon with bluish fur on top of its body, and a milky color on the underside. Although called the Fire Mouse Pokémon, Cyndaquil seems to be a composite of features from the echidna, seen in the flames erupting from its back, and the shrew, the general shape of its body. Its eyes are often closed, as it is still young. It has four red-colored spots on its back from which its flames erupt. It lacks claws on its forelimbs, but has a single claw on each hind foot.
Cyndaquil is capable of defending itself by using the fire on its back. The fire grows more powerful as the Cyndaquil becomes more angry or defensive. Cyndaquil is also able to expel obscuring smoke to lower the accuracy of its opponent.
Cyndaquil are usually timid, but its actual behavior depends on its personality. It tends to hide in most dangerous situations. Most Cyndaquil, such as Ash's, are inexperienced at first and don't know their strengths and weaknesses. If Cyndaquil is angry or surprised, such as from being attacked, it flares up its back for protection. Although its flames may burn vigorously in this emotional state, if Cyndaquil is tired the flames sputter fitfully with incomplete combustion. Cyndaquil can adapt to many habitats, however, most are found in the care of Trainers, having been their starter Pokémon.
Cyndaquil frighten easily, so they're often found curled up in balls. When threatened, they flare the flames on their backs to drive off enemies. Cyndaquil was one of the three Pokémon that Trainers could choose from at the beginning of Pokémon Silver, Gold, and Crystal. No one knows if their eyes are open.

~Cyndaquil is the only Fire-type starter Pokémon that retains its single typing throughout its entire evolutionary line.
~Cyndaquil's evolutionary line is one of two three-stage Fire-type families that retains its single typing, while the other is Magby.
~Cyndaquil and Chimchar are the two starter Pokémon that evolve at the lowest level, level 14.
~Cyndaquil is the second starter Pokémon to be seen hatching from an Egg in the anime, with the first being Mudkip.
~Cyndaquil and its evolutionary line can learn Iron Tail via TM23 in Generation II, but it can't learn it in later generations with the same TM.
~Despite being able to learn Swift via level up, it cannot learn it via Move Tutor.
~With the exception of Pikachu, Cyndaquil and its evolutionary line are the only starter Pokémon evolutionary line in the Yellow color group. The Cyndaquil line is only one of two Fire-type starter Pokémon evolutionary lines not to be in the Red color group (the other being the Chimchar line in the Brown color group).
