There are lots of Ghost-type Pokémon in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. Choosing which one to add to a Pokémon team can be a tough decision. The new Cyndaquil evolution, Hisuian Typhlosion, is the best option and is among the easiest Pokémon to get ahold of if players choose Cyndaquil as their starter Pokémon.

Hisuian Typhlosion

Hisuian Typhlosion is a great Pokémon. It has an interesting dual-typing of Fire and Ghost, which give it a great list of resistances, and two immunities. This can come in handy during battle. Hisuian Typhlosion also has a fantastic special attack and can be a threat to most opponents.
