Talonflame is an avian Pokémon closely resembling falcons. Its plumage is predominantly red-orange, with gray underparts and black tips on its long, pointed wings. Ovular orange spots dot its underside, and flame patterns mark the boundaries between colors on its body. Large yellow talons extend from the shaggy feathers on its legs. Talonflame has a pointed crest atop its head and a black and yellow mask-like pattern around its eyes. Its black beak is hooked with a yellow cere. It also has long black tail-feathers marked with three yellow "v"-shapes. The tail ends in two points and has a another feather sticking out of the base on each side, giving the impression of the fletching on the end of an arrow.
When battling, Talonflame dives at foes, reaching speeds of 310 miles per hour, and then attacks with devastating kicks. It showers embers from its feathers as it soars through the sky.
- Talonflame is the first Pokémon to have more than five katakana characters in its Japanese name.
- Talonflame has the highest base Speed stat of all Fire-type Pokémon, as well as all Pokémon introduced in Generation VI.
