As in all the fire starters are based on the chinese Zodiac: Dragon, Rat, Cock, Monkey, and Pig. I used to think it was BS, but then I noticed that Cyndaquil's species is "Fire mouse" and that swayed my opinion.

Here is what we have left and my predicted typings:

Rabbit: Fire/Fighting, Highest stat is speed
Horse: Fire, Highest stat is HP
Snake: Fire/Poison, Highest stat is Sp. Def
Sheep: Fire/Dark, Highest Stat is Atk.
Tiger: Fire, Highest stat is Sp. Atk
Ox: Fire/Steel, Highest stat is Def
Not changing this sig until we get a new main series Tales game released on a Nintendo console in the US

People keep saying it's "close enough" for a Dog.

That's because foxes are related to dogs.

Foxes are in the family Canidae, which is often referred to as "Big Dogs" or "Dog family" because of their relation to dogs.

Honestly Cyndaquil is an Echidna, why on earth would Game Freak name it "Fire Mouse" unless they were trying to go for the Zodiac?

Cyndaquil isn't a mouse. It's just a rodent.

Ok fair enough. Foxes are related to dogs and there are dogs in the chinese zodiac. Although if they were going that route, why wouldnt they just make a dog.
