Cyndaquil is the Fire-type of the three starter Pokemon for the Hisui region and is one of the three Pokemon you can choose besides the Water-type Oshawott and the Grass-type Rowlet. Like the other two starters, its final evolution has a Hisuian forme. Professor Laventon is the NPC who will give you your starter Pokemon at the beginning of the game. If you don't choose Cyndaquil at the start of the game, you can still get one from Space-Time Distortions but it will be more difficult due to it being infrequent to encounter. There is one more way- a much easier way to get Cyndaquil if you hadn't chosen it from the beginning. After completing the main story, you can return to Professor Laventon and be rewarded both Cyndaquil and the other starter you had not chosen.
