I saw one in Branson, Mo USA. Got one throw and it ran away :(

I caught one in east avon, NY. it took me about 4 tries to catch it, not sure if thats because its hard to catch, or im just not good at this game lol

I got one in Montreal with ember and heat. It took 52 throws to catch, it kept bursting out of the pokeball. But I figure that if it stuck around for that many throws, it's a keeper :P

I found Ninetails at a gas station and for some reason I could not see the CP and after 15 pokeballs it didn't run away from me.

Found mine at a baseball stadium in south texas, I was in range of a pokestop with a lure going and my own incense going. Only to two berris and two pokeballs to catch it

I caught one in my hotel in Maui. One raspberry and one great ball was all it took.

mine has only CP 733 with Feint Attack & Fire blast, and it's very good defeating Exeguttor with CP 1200 +. That's great because i've seen alot of exeggutor in gyms lately

Waterloo, ON mine got Feint and Fire Blast CP1166

Today mine got Solar Beam

Colote Abhijith said...

Mine got a Solar Beam(180) too. What on earth is going on ? lol. . Grass/Fire Pokémon ?

Motenai Ronin said...

The Logic being that Sunny Day is a move that powers up Fire moves, itself being a Fire move, but has the association of the sun with Solar Beam.

Just evolved one with Fire Spin 15 and Solar Beam 180. Neither are in the list of moves.

Feint attack and Solar Beam on a 97IV. NOT HAPPY.

Fuji Syusuke said...

Mine got Feint attack and Solarbean... worst combo ever

Anonymous said...

had numerous good ninetales in the past, but i've solidified on an 88.9% fire spin/solar beam, as numerous other fire types get fires spin/overheat anyway, flareon for one.

type coverage is basically against near everything ninetales is weak against. reckon these off-type reverse counter moves could see more use if there was ever some incentive to taking down things with a type disadvantageous pkmn.

It's good for future pvp battle guys!

I got one today about an hour ago in Serbia, Doroslovo it was in my house it only took me one rasberry and 1 normal pokeball, i got a great shot and a curve ball too, im very surprised it took only 1 try. Im the only one from all of my friends that has a pokemon this rare

Kimberly Waide said...

My first comment went poof due to google messing up but I evolved my vulpix. I was weirded out when I saw solar beam

Kamonichan said...

Just evolved a Vulpix into a Ninetales, and it knows Feint and Solar Beam. No idea why Niantic thinks it's a good idea to create completely useless, nonviable move sets. Last time this happened (Alakazam learned a Fighting move), I quit the game for a month. Stupid ideas like Psychic Poke'mon learning Fighting moves and Fire Poke'mon learning Grass moves make me want to quit this game.
