Braixen

Braixen is a Fire type Pokémon introduced in Generation 6. It is known as the Fox Pokémon.

Braixen no longer eats branches but it still keeps a tree branch in its tail, which seems to calm the Pokémon. It will occasionally wield the branch in battle and use friction to light it on fire.

Braixen evolves from Fennekin at level 16, and evolves into Delphox at level 36.
