    #653 - Fennekin
    Japanese Name: Fokko
    Classification: Fox Pokémon
    Height: 0.4m / 1'04"
    Weight: 9.4kg / 20.7 lbs
    Egg Group: Field

    Ability: Blaze
    Hidden Ability: Magician

    Revealed: Fennekin was revealed along with the other two starters, Chespin and Froakie, and two Legendary Pokémon, Xerneas and Yveltal, on the 8th of January, 2013 during a Pokémon Direct broadcast announcing the Gen VI games.

    Additional Info: As described by Pokemon.com, "searing heat blows from the ears of the Fire-type Pokémon Fennekin. This Pokémon loves to snack on twigs. Fennekin can be temperamental, but it tries to do its best for its Trainer."

    X: Eating a twig fills it with energy, and its roomy ears give vent to air hotter than 390 degrees Fahrenheit.
    Y: As it walks, it munches on a twig in place of a snack. It intimidates opponents by puffing hot air out of its ears.

    Fennekin is one of the Kalos regions three starter Pokémon.

    Fennekin evolves into Braixen at level 16

  2. There's going to be alot of people choosing Fennekin..
    But how much, the world may never know; I never chose Tepig..

    But this time once the games come out,
    I'll go back to choosing Fire types..
    but first; I'll just wait until all of the evos come out.

  3. Fennekin has a surprisingly small move set, even compared to the other starters. That, along with general fire-type weaknesses, makes me disinclined to choose it as my starter. Also, given the aforementioned reasons, I'm not sure why so many people are keen on this pokemon, it seems to be one that would require a lot of planning in order to be successful in battle.

    Has anyone else thought it was weird that there's "searing heat" coming from Fennekin's EARS? Its ears?! What on earth could cause something (even a pokemon) to have such heat coming out of its ears? Slightly concerned for this pokemon's sake.

    In fairness we can't say it has a small move set when we have no idea at this point what its full list of moves will be, we've just been collecting up everything we know this far. While I really adore Fennekin as a cute design, I think I'll pass on it regardless now because we've been introduced to other fire types I want to train more.

    Also, consider that the Johto fire starter had fire coming from its back? I don't find heat coming from its ears all that odd. xD

  5. I always choose Aquatic starters (exept chikorita) my choise is Froakie, but Fennekin is cute and its evo is AWESOME!!! But still I pick Froakie...
  6. So cute :love: I'm hoping it will be a girl so I can name it Amber!
  7. I'm not one to choose Fire types, and it's gonan stay like that. In my years of playing Pokemon, I've only ever picked one fire-type started, Cyndaquil. I'm drifting towards Chespin in the Kalos region

    Well Tepig had smoke coming out of it's nose. That's also strange. Charmander and Chimchar all had fires on there tails. also weird. However i think the most sensible one is Cyndaquil, He had fire coming out of holes in it's back (and could do it at will)

  8. Psychic CONFIRMED as of dual type moves glow punch will be Psychic / Fighting and psybeam is in its move set soooo....
  9. Not necessarily. For example, Venonat can learn 4 Psychic Type moves and 4 Normal Type Moves, but its types are Bug and Poison, for which it only learns 2 moves of each. This is just one example, and there is probably a better one out there, but this is the only one I could think of at the moment.
  10. At least it's final evolution is not ANOTHER fire/fighting type.
  11. D'aww... it's so cute... but Chespin and Froakie are adorable, too... sooo... which should I choose now?
  12. i LOVE this pokemon. FIRE TYPES FOREVER! ♥ ;)
  13. Who should i choose... froakie or fennikin
  14. i choose froakie and chespin in this one because this fire type is not that cool and i pick fire types as my pather all the time but not this time
  15. I'll have her due to me having a fire type starter in my teams

  17. Fenniken would have to be my least favorite Fire Starter, though to some of you its the cutest thing known to Pokemon.
  18. After you beat the game you can trade pokemon with your rival shauna and she will give you the starter that is not very effective against your starter pokemon.If you choose froakie she will give you fennekin.Also you can trade her any pokemon.
  19. Its soooo cute!*Sees its evo*I MUST HAVE A BRAIXEN PLUSHIE!!!*Sees its second evo*ITS A FREAKIN FIRE FOX MAGE I MUST HAVE IT IT!!!
    That is why im team Fennekin! :p <.>
  20. When I got this game this was my starter
    needless to say, it was NOT a bad choice X3
  21. If I had a 3ds and the Y game, I'd totally would get this starter!
