Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Minccino is the Pokémon released from Professor Juniper's Poké Ball in the introduction just as other Pokémon games have done.
- This Pokémon was revealed along with six other Pokémon in July's issue of CoroCoro on June 11, 2010.
- Minccino's Japanese name, Chillarmy, is derived from Chinchilla and charm.
- Minccino is the first Chinchilla Pokémon.
- The official Romanization for this Pokémon is Chillarmy. Its English name is Minccino. The literal name is Chiramii.
- When spoken phonetically, Minccino is almost the same as "Missingno," a well known glitch "Pokémon" from the original games. The first time Miccino is encountered, namely when Professor Juniper is showing the Player Character how to catch Pokémon, is also a reference to Missingno, as part of the process to encounter it was to talk to the man in the original games who taught the Player Character how to catch Pokémon.
- In Pokémon: Black and White 2 Prof. Juniper evolved her Minccino to a Cinccino shown in the introduction scene.
