Fennekin, known in Japan as フォッコ (Fokko), is a Fire-type Pokémon. It evolves into Braixen at level 16, which evolves into Delphox at level 36.

Fennekin is one of the three Starter Pokémon of Kalos, alongside Chespin and Froakie.


Fennekin is a quadrupedal, bright yellow Pokémon with vulpine characteristics. It has fluffy thighs and a puffy, urn-shaped tail with an orange-red tip. It has large, orange eyes, with a black edge rimming its sclera. Between his eyes are three thin stripes. It also has a white muzzle with white puffs on each side. It's most notable characteristic are its large ears, each with an orange-red tuft inside, resembling a flame.

Its ears are very roomy and vents air higher than 390 degrees Fahrenheit. It puffs this hot air to intimidate opponents. Its favorite snack are twigs, as it fills Fennekin with lots of energy. When it is given other snacks, it usually denies these and munches on a twig instead.


  • Even though Fennekin's Pokédex Color is Red, it is actually mostly yellow.


Fennekin's appearance is largely based on a Fennec fox.
