Fennekin (Japanese: フォッコ Fokko) is a Fire-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VI.

It evolves into Braixen starting at level 16, which evolves into Delphox starting at level 36.

Along with Chespin and Froakie, Fennekin is one of three starter Pokémon of Kalos available at the beginning of Pokémon X and Y.

Along with Chespin, Froakie, Xerneas, and Yveltal, it was the first Generation VI Pokémon to be revealed to the public on January 8, 2013 as part of the Pokémon Direct broadcast.

Biology

Fennekin is a small, quadruped fox-like Pokémon. It is covered in pale yellow fur that is longer on its haunches. It has a white muzzle with longer fur on its cheeks, large, dark orange eyes, and a pointed, black nose. When its mouth is open, two pointed teeth can be seen in its upper jaw. Tufts of dark orange fur cover the interior of its large ears. Fennekin also has small paws with no visible toes and slim legs. Its tail is fluffy with a dark orange tip.

Hot air is vented from Fennekin's ears, reaching temperatures of over 390 degrees Fahrenheit (200 degrees Celsius). It uses this ability to intimidate opponents. Fennekin chews on twigs, which fill it with energy. It can be temperamental, but it tries to do its best for its Trainer.[1]

She was later revealed to have been found by Team Flare and was put in a box with other Pokémon from Vaniville Town, taken by Malva, who crushed the unneeded Pokédex under her foot.
