More Details From Braixen at Pokken Arena

Braixen is a playable Pokémon in Pokkén Tournament. She is the evolution of Fennekin and can evolve into Delphox. She is known as the Fox Pokémon. Braixen was initially exclusive to the Wii U version of Pokkén, but was added to the arcade version on July 20th, 2016 as part of version A14.

In Pokkén Tournament Edit

Braixen is a Pokémon that is best used at range. She can buff her melee attacks for decent damage, but can also buff her range attacks, leading to better damage. Braixen has certain witch motifs, though she acts in a coquette manner, being brazen at the same time. Using her torch as a fighting stick, magic wand, and broom, she is capable of creating a fiery whip out of her torch. She is tied with Weavile and Gardevoir for the third lowest HP count in the game. Her fighting style is similar to Xianghua/Leixia from the Soul Calibur series. Braixen shares with them the moves Twin Rhythm (Duel Phase X, X) and Vengeful Lian Hua (Field/Duel Phase backwards+X).

Special Characteristics Edit

Support Cancelling Edit

A feature only unique to Braixen is being able to do a support call after certain moves, unlike other characters who require finishing their attack animations before calling a Support Pokémon. This effectively allows her to end her attack prematurely and reduce cool-down time for her every move, essentially cancelling it. Moreover, this ability allows her to link up a combo using a Support Pokémon.

Support Building and Sunny Day Edit

Support Building Edit

Her ability to do cancel moves by calling a support is complemented by another ability unique to her, namely the ability to fill her Support Gauge a bit faster by using any attack move. As such, she can call a support earlier with this ability.

Sunny Day Edit

A move that puts Braixen into a powered-up state, allowing her to perform one enhanced Pokémon move. These enhanced moves are more powerful with enlarged hitboxes and additional properties. Sunny Day also fills Braixen's Support Gauge by a small fraction.

Synergy Burst Edit

Aesthetics Edit

Braixen glows in a light shade of pink with stars and sparkles floating around her, similar to her enhanced state. Her torch obtains a few floating rings near the flame as well.

Character-Specific Burst Mode Effects Edit

On Synergy Burst mode, Braixen moves faster than her standard running speed. Most importantly, all Pokémon moves used in this state are always enhanced, eliminating the an initial need to use Sunny Day to enhance them.

Burst Attack - Psyfirecracker Edit

Braixen shoots out a ribbon-like spiral directly in front of her at a medium range, wrapping the opponent in a ball. She then releases spheres with star and heart motifs, and launches them at the opponent, accompanied with firecracker explosions.
