Serena's Fennekin (Japanese: セレナのフォッコ Serena's Fokko) is Serena's first Pokémon.


Serena and Fennekin

Fennekin first appeared in A Battle of Aerial Mobility! as one of the three starter Pokémon new Pokémon Trainers could choose from Professor Sycamore. In A Shockingly Cheeky Friendship!, Serena chose Fennekin as her starter Pokémon. Later in the same episode, Fennekin chased a wild Vespiquen that was about to attack Serena away with Ember, demonstrating courage and care for her Trainer.

In A Blustery Santalune Gym Battle!, Fennekin woke up with Serena at a Pokémon Center and enjoyed a large breakfast with her. Fennekin mimicked Serena's actions during their breakfast by stretching as the same time she did. Later in the same episode, she was introduced to Ash, Pikachu, Clemont, and Bonnie and greeted them happily.

In Giving Chase at the Rhyhorn Race!, Fennekin had her first battle, fighting against Team Rocket and using Ember to blast them off.

In Grooming Furfrou!, Serena left her with what she thought were Pokémon Stylists so she could be groomed. Unfortunately, the "Pokémon Stylists" turned out to be Team Rocket, who were running a scam to steal Pokémon. When Serena saw the "Pokémon Stylists" on a wanted poster, she rushed to rescue Fennekin, and did so with the help of Ash, Pikachu, Jessica and her Furfrou, they were reunited after they sent Team Rocket blasting off.

In A PokéVision of Things to Come!, many personality traits of Fennekin became apparent such as her jealousy, short temper, and concern for her appearance. She become jealous of Aria and her Fennekin after she observed their winning PR video. After Serena was inspired by the video, she and Fennekin decide to make their own PR video to portray their bond with one another. While filming the video, there were incidents where Fennekin became dirty which angered her and she attempted to use Ember on Pikachu, but he jumped out of the way and Ash got hit instead. Fennekin was later captured by Team Rocket alongside Pikachu and Dedenne but, with their combined attacks including her Hidden Power, managed to escape. Fennekin's dislike for water was also made apparent in this episode when she hesitated to run through a large muddy puddle that was between herself and Serena. After seeing her trainer running to save her and getting attacked by Team Rocket however, Fennekin, at the cost of getting muddy, ran to protect her trainer by unleashing a Flamethrower attack at the villains.

In A Battle by Any Other Name!, Serena competed with her Fennekin in a Poké Puff Contest against Serena's new rival Miette, and made a Fire-type style Poké Puff with a twig on the top due to Fennekin's affinity for twigs. Later, both of them went looking in a forest for ingredients but were attacked by angry Swirlix. Fennekin tried to ward off the Swirlix with Scratch, but she was entangled and became stuck by the Swirlix's white sticky thread until rescued by Pikachu's Thunderbolt. She then drove them off with Flamethrower. Later she combined her attack with Slurpuff's Energy Ball and Pikachu's Thunderbolt to destroy Team Rocket's mecha. Later she helped in the final round but both Serena and Miette both lost to the Berrybaker kids.

In Summer of Discovery!, Fennekin had a battle against Shauna's Bulbasaur. Fennekin started off with a Flamethrower and the Bulbasaur countered with an Energy Ball. Despite having the type advantage, the Energy Ball hit and Fennekin lost the battle because of the First-Touch-Rule.

In Battling Into the Hall of Fame!, Fennekin was used in a Tag Battle along with Pikachu and Chespin against Shauna's Bulbasaur, Tierno's Squirtle and Trevor's Charmander. Fennekin started by using her Flamethrower to counter Charmander's Flamethrower so Pikachu could attack Squirtle. Squirtle managed to knock Pikachu away and hit Fennekin with a super-effective Water Gun. Fennekin later tried to block Squirtle's Aqua Tail with Hidden Power, but Aqua Tail overpowered her attack and Fennekin was defeated. She was initially disappointed after losing but later cheered up.

Personality and characteristics

Fennekin has been shown to take after her Trainer. In A Blustery Santalune Gym Battle!, she mimicked Serena when she stretched out. She takes pride in her appearance, and becomes upset when her fur or tail become mussed or dirty. In The Bamboozling Forest!, she thanked Froakie for cleaning her tail with the Frubbles on the Water-type's back, and in A PokéVision of Things to Come!, she hesitated to escape from Team Rocket because of a large muddy puddle that blocked her path, only changing her mind after seeing her Trainer start to run across the puddle to her side. Her unwillingness to become dirty was seen again in Going for the Gold!, when she fled from a Corsola's Water Gun.

Fennekin is shown to have a bit of a temper and she gets angry quickly without thinking twice, as shown in A PokéVision of Things to Come!, when she continuously tried to hit Pikachu with her Ember attack. The same episode also showed that she is easily envious, becoming jealous of Aria's Fennekin's performance on PokéVision, and when Ash and Chespin complimented the performance.

Fennekin is shown to have similar interests as Serena, as seen in A PokéVision of Things to Come! and A Battle by Any Other Name!, where Fennekin is seen to enjoy cooking and dressing up, particularly with Serena, and has a liking for Poké Puffs and other sweets such as Macarons. First shown in The Bamboozling Forest!, she also likes to snack on twigs, which is characteristic of her species.
