Besides being based off a fennik fox, the whole line also takes inspiration from a witch or mage, which hopefully will become more clear in it's final evolution. CoolDudeAl (talk) 01:25, 13 September 2013 (UTC)
Braixen is based on a Fennec fox. It uses a stick like a wand in some of its attacks, and its tail has the appearance of a broom when the stick is placed on it, alluding to traits commonly associated with Witches.
- Bra- could also be from branch, considering it wields a stick. Zeb (talk) 14:07, 13 September 2013 (UTC)
Korean name for Braixen
Its Korean name is 테르나 Tereuna.
- Likely based on its Japanese name... but I'll make sure there isn't more to it in a bit. -- Nick15 (talk) 17:20, 16 September 2013 (UTC)
- Yeah, totally based on the Japanese name. -- Nick15 (talk) 17:53, 16 September 2013 (UTC)
Fire/Fighting Starter trend broken TRIVIA
Will somebody please put in the Trivia section that Braixen is the first mid-stage Fire starter pokemon to not be part fighting type and have it carry to its evolution since Combusken? I don't know how to word it. :( --MrSpheal 15:57, 20 January 2015 (UTC)
- In my honest opinion, I don't think it's notable enough. Sure, we might have gone through three consecutive generations with that pairing, but I'm looking at the whole picture in here. 3 out of 6 Generations have had Fire/Fighting as the final evolutionary stage of the fire starter. Had we had 5 out of 6 generations instead, then I would list it. Masatoshi talk 21:20, 20 January 2015 (UTC)
