Moltres, a Legendary Pokémon. Its virtues symbolize the Pokémon League Competitions.
– Ash’s Pokedex
Moltres is the 3rd of the legendary Kanto birds. Its Japanese name is just “Fire”. Based on a firebird, Moltres is one of the 3 Fire/Flying Pokemon.
Moltres’ location keeps on changing, despite many games featuring Kanto. In RBY, it was found on Victory Road. It’s not in GSC. In FRLG it’s on Mt Ember in the Sevii Islands. In HGSS it’s on Mt Silver. Poor Moltres, it just couldn’t find a permanent home like the other birds.
In the anime, it’s featured in the second movie, battling with Zapdos and Articuno.
Stat-wise, it has high Sp Attack and Attack, but comparitively low Speed and defenses. It can learn Solar Beam by level-up, one of the few non-Grass types to do so.
