Braixen, as a Fennekin, is a very friendly and kind hearted Pokémon with a very bold heart. She tends to mimic Serena as shown when she stretched like her. Like her trainer, she detests getting dirty, and always takes great care to look her best at all times, and can get angry if she gets dirty. However, she overcomes her fear of untidiness and learns an important lesson in doing so in order to protect Serena, though she never loses her desire to be beautiful. Fennekin can sometimes be very temperamental with other trainers and their Pokémon but she always obeys Serena, and is quite affectionate towards her. Fennekin also shows her love of twigs when Serena feeds it to her and the twig she eats is similar to a pocky stick.
