Could Fennekin (sp?) either be a wolf instead of a fox, or turn into one when it evolves (lets face it, species jumps have happened before with other Pokemon)?
Since X-Dear and Y-vern seem to be partially based on Nordic mythology, it could be that Fennnekin could be partially inspired by the mythical wolf Fenrir.
I personally doubt it is true, but it would be awesome to have a fire-wolf as a starter, and foxes kind of resemble wolves a little bit. Plus, most Pokemon's names have something to do with what they are. --- You must let your anger be as a monkey in a pinata, hiding inside with the candy, hoping kids don't breakthrough with a stick.
Fennekin is a Fennec Fox. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fennec_fox So, that's where that part of the name came from. Your theory would still be cool, though. Edit: Aaaaaand ninja'd. --- My NIDOKING brings all the boys to the yard: http://goo.gl/ExAoe
I guess there still could be a chance of it turning into a mix of a fox and wolf, if they try some weird play-on-words thing.
I hear Gamefreak likes to mix there sources, as portrayed by Golurk being half super robot and half golem XD --- You must let your anger be as a monkey in a pinata, hiding inside with the candy, hoping kids don't breakthrough with a stick.
Remember when that guy claimed he works for the team that creates Pokemon, (Actually only corrects the grammar in English release) and hinted something.
"Do you guys think Fennekin will stay a fennec".
Which implies something.
I say it's Male and Female changes the evolution ala Nido-line. --- Oh no! My http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/570198-basketball-nightmare/ ! :o http://tital.bigforumpro.com/ Join the Haven of all Kingdom Hearts Roleplays!
