A lousy starter theory.

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.

Fennekin is a Fennec Fox.

So, that's where that part of the name came from. Your theory would still be cool, though.
Edit: Aaaaaand ninja'd.

You learn something new every day.

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

Yes it's a fox but it represents the dog in the Chinese zodiac.

The "evidence" often cited for this is pretty bad.

Fire Tiger and Fire snake? Heck with the tradition, they should use those now.

Fire Rabbit? I think I am going to pick the plant type that gen...

Male: Wolf.
Female: Fox.

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.
