Braixen (テールナー Teerunaa) is a Fire-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VI. It is the evolved form of the Fire-type Starter of Kalos, Fennekin.

Biology

Physiology

Braixen is a bipedal fox-like Pokémon; unlike its pre-evolution Fennekin, it now stands upright on two legs. Braixen is covered mainly in bright yellow fur (with a black underside) that resembles a skirt; it has a collar of fluffy white fur below its thin neck and covering on its chest. It has a long pointed snout with a round orange nose, and bright orange eyes, as well as having tufts of bright orange fur sprouting from its ears. It has a branch embedded in its bushy yellow orange-tipped tail, which it uses as a wand to emit blasts of flame.

Behavior

Once Fennekin evolves into Braixen, it no longer eats branches for snacks, but will still keep a tree branch in its tail in order to fight with. Braixen will occasionally wield the branch in battle and use friction to light it on fire, as if it is a wand.

Characteristics

When Braixen pulls its branch from its tail the friction causes the tip of the branch to catch fire, and it can swirl the fire as well as shooting it to attack.

Evolution

Braixen evolves from Fennekin at level 16. It evolves into Delphox at level 36.
