Fennekin ( is the Japanese: フォッコ Fokko ) -type Fire Starter Pokémon in the Kalos region from the Pokémon X and Pokémon Y games.
Fennekin is a small fox-like Pokémon. It has yellow and white fur. It also has fur sticking out of its ears, which is the same color of its eyes and the top of its tail.
Searing heat blows from the ears, Fennekin loves to snack on twigs. Fennekin can be temperamental, but it tries to do its best for its Trainer.
Fennekin can be evolved into a
Braixen at level 16 and into Delphox at 36.
Eating a twig fills it with energy, and its roomy ears give vent to air hotter than 390 degrees Fahrenheit.
As it walks, it munches on a twig in place of a snack. It intimidates opponents by puffing hot air out of its ears.
In the anime,
Serena received a Fennekin from Professor Sycamore as her starter Pokémon.
Fennekin's name comes from the animal
fennec fox, a desert fox, and kindle. Fennekin is based on the form of the Shara of North Africa Fennec Fox or Fex the Vulpes Zerda. The name Fennekin is also based on those animals.
