Fennekin is a tiny, quadrupedal Pokémon that looks like a fox. It has light yellow fur that is longer on its haunches. It has a white muzzle with longer fur on its cheeks, huge, dark orange eyes, and a black nose with a pointed tip. When its mouth is open, two pointed teeth in its upper jaw may be seen. The inside of its enormous ears are covered with dark orange fur tufts. Fennekin also has short legs and little paws with no visible toes. It has a fluffy tail with a dark orange tip.

Hot air escapes from Fennekin’s ears, reaching temperatures of more than 390 degrees Fahrenheit (200 degrees Celsius). This skill is used to scare opponents. Fennekin gets its energy by chewing on twigs. It might be erratic, but it always strives to do its best for its Trainer.
