Pokémon BDSP Mod Adds Flames Back to Cyndaquil & Evolutions

A talented Pokemon fan edited Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Brilliant Pearl to restore the missing rear flames of the Cyndaquil evolutionary line. Game mods can be a useful tool for giving games a feature they lack for one reason or another, which can often lead to an improved gaming experience through mods.

Cyndaquil, the hugely popular Fire Mouse Pokemon, serves as the Johto region’s Fire-type Starter. His Starter status has earned him appearances in many Pokemon games, not just the ones that take place in Johto. Cyndaquil can be found in Brilliant Diamond and Brilliant Pearl‘s Grand Underground once the player has received the National Dex. Perhaps the most prominent feature of Cynadaquil and its evolutions is their awesome flames – Cyndaquil and Quilava both have jets of fire running down their backs, while Typhlosion has a roaring flame frill. Cyndaquil’s design has helped him become one of the franchise’s most popular Starters, recently becoming a favorite in Pokemon Legends: Arceus. However, when the Pokemon games made the leap to 3D, Cyndaquil’s Evolutionary line models suffered an unusual consequence as their rear flames were extinguished. Not permanently, as their flames still appeared during battle animations, but it’s still shocking for players who have become accustomed to constantly flaming Pokemon sprites.

Now, thanks to the efforts of a talented modder Yisuno (Going through GameRant), the Cyndaquil family shines bright again thanks to a mod that restores the flames of the Pokémon lineage in Brilliant Diamond and Brilliant Pearl. A prolific modder, Yisuno made the switch as “messing around with Pokémon animations”, leading to the trio of Fire-types making a much more impressive figure in combat. Although not as drastic a change as some Pokemon mods create, like transplant metroid bosses in Pokemonit’s always a welcome sight for those Pokemon fans who miss the old Cyndaquil look.

Yisuno is a developer for Pokemon Luminescenta BDSP mod that increases the difficulty of the whole game, which explains their occasional tinkering with the models in the game. Although this modification of the models of the Cyndaquil line is not yet publicly available, it seems that many players of the games want the try if Yisuno releases a downloadable version of the mod. Mods that change some aspect of a game’s world can often prove to be very popular. Other recent mods seen in the wider gaming community include one that introduces the upcoming Gen 9 starters into animal crossing.

Although Pokemon‘s Cyndaquil canonically only lights its flames in response to danger, the static sprites of old Pokemon meant that he had long been associated with flames erupting from his back, regardless of the situation. So while from an in-universe perspective the choice to recall the Starter’s fire makes sense, it has always been a point of contention and even disappointment for many fans. However, it looks like anything is possible with the power of mods, and players can see Cyndaquil and her evolutions standing with their back flames in place once again. A simple change or not, the sight is sure to be encouraging for those Pokemon fans who miss the more battle-ready appearances of Fire-types.

A talented Pokémon fan has modded Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl to restore the Cyndaquil evolutionary line’s missing back flames. Game mods can be a useful tool to give games a feature that they lack for one reason or another, which can often lead to an improved gameplay experience through mods.
Cyndaquil, the very popular Fire Mouse Pokémon, serves as the Fire-type Starter of the Johto region. Its Starter status means that it appears in many Pokémon games, not just those set in Johto.

Not permanently, as their flames still appeared during battle animations, but it is still jarring for gamers who have grown used to the sprites of constantly firey Pokémon.
Now, through the efforts of talented modder Yisuno (via GameRant), the Cyndaquil family is burning brightly once again thanks to a mod that restores the Pokémon line’s flames in Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.

Yisuno is a developer for Pokémon Luminescent, a BDSP mod that ups the entire game’s difficulty, which explains their casual tinkering with the game’s models. While this alteration to the Cyndaquil line’s models is not available publically as of yet, it seems that many players of the games are keen to give it a try should Yisuno release a downloadable version of the mod. Mods that change up some aspect of a game’s world can often turn out to be quite popular. Other recent mods seen in the wider gaming community include one that introduces the upcoming Generation 9 Starters into Animal Crossing.
Although Pokémon‘s Cyndaquil canonically only flares its flames in response to danger, the static sprites of the older Pokémon games meant that it has long since been associated with flames gushing from its back no matter what the situation. So, while from an in-universe perspective the choice to dial back the Starter’s fire makes sense, it has still been a point of contention and even disappointment for lots of fans. However, it seems that anything is possible through the power of mods, and gamers are able to see Cyndaquil and its evolutions standing tall with their back flames in place once more. A simple change or not, the sight is sure to be heartening for those Pokémon fans who miss the Fire-types’ more battle-ready appearances.
