Pokémon Legends: Arceus features a new regional variant of some fan-favorite Pokémon. One of these is the Fire-type starter, Typhlosion. Hisuian Typhlosion is a Fire and Ghost-type Pokémon that evolves from Cyndaquil (at level 14) and Quilava (at level 36). With Hisuian Typhlosion’s Fire and Ghost-typing, the strongest moves will share those typings, as they will benefit from S.T.A.B. (Same-Type Attack Bonus). This makes them do increased damage in battle. The best moves for Typhlosion are Overheat, Flamethrower, Shadow Ball, and Hex.

How to use Hisuian Typhlosion best in battle

When in battle, players should know which Pokémon typings to avoid and which to attack. It is important to keep this in mind to avoid any unnecessary casualties when using Hisuian Typhlosion. Typhlosion is a Ghost and Fire-type Pokémon.

Ghost-type Pokémon will take more damage from Ghost and Dark-type attacks and will be more effective against Psychic and Ghost-type Pokémon. Fire-type Pokémon will be more vulnerable to Water, Ground, and Rock-type moves while performing better against Steel, Bug, Grass, and Ice-type Pokémon.
