Pokemon's First Appearance: Pokemon Red, Blue & Yellow

Ninetales has a good base stat total (505) but that's really it. It lacks an assortment of well-rounded non-damaging and damaging moves, and is also weak against Ground, Rock and Water-type Pokemon and attacks. Sure, Ninetales could turn Skarmory into a hot pile of crispy meat (and turn its steel into plates and silverware), but there are better Fire-type Pokemon worth having on your team such as, say, Magmar. (Hint, hint.)
