Braixen (Japanese: テールナー Tairenar) is a Fire-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VI.

It evolves from Fennekin starting at level 16 and evolves into Delphox starting at level 36.

Biology

Braixen is a bipedal, fox-like Pokémon. While the majority of its fur is yellow, it has black legs, white arms, face and neck, and a dark orange tail tip. The fur on its cheeks is longer, and a small mane of white fur covers its shoulders and chest. Long, wavy tufts of dark orange fur grow out of its large ears, and its eyes and small nose match this fur in color. Above its legs, the fur sweeps out to either side. When its mouth is open, two pointed teeth can be seen on its upper jaw. Braixen always keeps a stick in its tail, which it sets alight using its bushy tail fur. The flame from the lit twig is used for both attack and communication.

Trivia

Origin

Braixen is based on a fox,[2] specifically resembling the fennec fox. It shares characteristics with kitsune and kitsune-mochi, witches in Japanese folklore that inherit their powers from foxes. Braixen's tail resembles a broomstick and its fur is reminiscent of seifuku, the predominant uniform worn by Japanese schoolgirls.

Name origin

Braixen may be a combination of braise (French for hot charcoal) and vixen (female fox). It may also be an allusion to bruxa (Portuguese for witch).

Tairenar may be a combination of テール tail and ルナール renard (French for fox).
