Fennekin is a small fox-like Pokémon. It has yellow, orange, and white fur. The fur on its long, pointy muzzle and face is white, while its body is mainly covered in bright yellow fur. It has fluffy tufts of vibrant flame-orange fur protruding from its ears. Its eyes are round and bright orange with slit pupils. Its nose is round and black. It has a short bushy yellow tail with an orange tip, similarly shaped to the tail of Zorua.
Searing heat blows from Fennekin's ears when it is threatened. It loves to snack on twigs, which help generate more body heat. It can be temperamental, but it tries to do its best for its Trainer.
