Pokemon Review #38: Ninetales


Wow, it’s been way too long. Sorry about that. But at least I have a great Pokemon to come back to. Just like all Gen 1 fire types. And this one is based on the Kitsune, a nine tailed (get it?) fox deity in Japanese mythology.

See, I love when Pokemon makes references to Japanese myths and religions. And this one goes all the way with it, making references to cursing people, understanding human speech, living for a thousand years, and each tail containing mystical powers. Design wise, the white fur and red eyes help give off that mystical vibe, and she simply looks beautiful. All in all, a wonderful Pokemon through and through.
