Obviously a Kitsune for both Alolan and Kantonian forms, but are there any other inspirations?

Well, I couldn’t find any official material stating this, but it could’ve taken inspiration from an Arctic Fox (one of my favorite animals). It has a pure white coat in the winter, similar to that of Alolan Ninetales (though it has some blue). They also live in the tundra biome of the Arctic, where it’s cold and snowy, hinting towards the Ice typing. Besides that, I couldn’t really find anything else (besides the Kitsune, of course).

Hope this helps! :)

I believe it is still based on a kitsune, here's what makes me think so: Google Search

I believe he is talking about the Alolan form not the original.
