    We already have a fire type based on a Shi/Shisa, and I could go on about how the Chinese Zodiac theory is a crock of shit, but not today.

    A lot of people are also thinking that it'll be based on a Kitsune, which is pretty unimaginative considering every other fox Pokemon is based on one. What would be interesting is if Fennkin's last stage had an Arabian/African theme to it, given the Fennec fox's Saharan origins. I just hope they make it less anthropomorphic than the last three fire starters.

    When I figured somebody was going to mention there already being a Pokemon being a ShiShi, I figured you'd say Entei because really that's partially what Entei is if you consider it's design. So I knew either ShiShi or Kitsune was impossible to be done and not already have a Pokemon like that exist. Either way, when I designed Shisearer, I knew Pokemon had done a ShiShi design in the form of Entei, even Arcanine as well, but honestly what else is there to base a Canine off of anymore without clashing with a Pokemon that already exists?

    Shisearer's overall appearance is due to my dislike of Fennekin's foxy and feminine appearance
    It doesn't necessarily need to be "foxy and feminine", but I do think Fennekin's evolutions will retain its elegance. Your design seems to be more of a protest against those qualities because you don't happen to like them than a sensible idea for an evolution.

    I have a feeling we're either in for a curveball with Fennekin's final stage, or it'll be a simple animalistic design with a few alterations. Foxes are really common figures in mythology and folklore, other than the obligatory Kitsune or nine tailed fox. You've got the Greek Teumessian fox, which was destined to never be caught, the pale fox which is a mischievous diety in African Dogon lore, and various trickster/familiar figures in European/Scandanavian mythology.

    There's a fair bit of evidence that there might be an emphasis on European myths in X & Y, it wouldn't be unreasonable to see at least one of the starters' designs influenced by that.
