is the evolved form of Serena's Fennekin
. It evolved during a double battle against Aria
shortly before the battle was called off as Aria
had to leave. Serena
asked Tairenar to bear with her from now on after it evolved.
While practicing for their upcoming Tripokalon, Serena's Pancham
accidentally hit Braixen and caused it to break its twig. It was very sad that it was broken and no matter what twig that they tried to get to replace it, it didn't want it. Serena
had once told it that the moves launched from that broken stick would definitely allow them to become Kalos Queen, so it was quite attached to that particular stick.
Nurse Joy (Kalos)
suggested to Serena
that she visit Woodward
, a master wood grafter, in order to get Serena's Braixen
's twig fixed. Initially Woodward
insinuated to Serena
that if her and Braizen's feelings were strong enough, he'd be able to put 100 percent of his effort into fixing the twig and the way to show that was to have a Pokémon battle with him as he believes they are the best way to know a Pokémon's feelings.
battled against Serena's Braixen
but it had a severe type disadvantage. The battle was only to teach Serena
and Serena's Braixen
about their feeling for each other and that in the long run the twig that was broken wasn't that important. Woodward's Gallade
seemly lost the battle after it was stopped when Serena's Braixen
hit it with a direct hit from Fire Blast.
After the battle, Woodward
revealed that by the time she had brought the stick to him, it was already beyond saving. He believed that Serena's Braixen
already knew the reason why he had her battle.
He explained that it's important to cherish tools, but as with anything, being too choicy about them is not a good thing. When Serena's Braixen
tried using Flamethrower with its broken stick, it turned into Fire Blast. It may have been coincidental, but it was Serena's Braixen
strong feelings that made Fire Blast launch from that broken stick. He finished off by saying that if it had feelings as strong as what he'd seen in the battle, he was certain that it could master any kind of tool.
