Flareon (Japanese: ブースター Booster) is a Fire-type Pokémon.
Flareon is a quadruped Pokémon with three small toes and a yellow paw pad on each foot. It has long ears, dark eyes, and a small black nose. Its body is covered in reddish-orange fur. However, its bushy tail, fluffy collar, and a tuft of fur on its head are yellow. It will fluff out its collar to cool down its high body temperature. This high temperature is caused by its internal flame sac. Flareon stores and heats inhaled air in this sac, and then exhales it as fire. Flareon is mostly found in populated areas, and is rarely seen in the wilderness.
- Flareon shares its species name with Charmeleon, Charizard, Moltres, and Infernape. They are all known as the Flame Pokémon.
- Flareon has the highest Special Defense base stat of all non-legendary Fire-type Pokémon.
It is most likely based on foxes, due to its body shape and orange coloration, but it also has traits of felines. The fluffy mane and tail resemble a Pomeranian dog, as well as a lion's mane.
Flareon is a combination of flare and eon (an immeasurably long period of time, possibly referring to how long evolution takes naturally). Eon is a suffix all Eevee evolutions share and was Eevee's English prototype name.
Booster is literally booster, possibly referring to rocket boosters, which propel things by combustion of fuel.
