Shinx (Japanese: コリンク Korinku) is an Electric-type Pokémon.

Appearance

It is based on a lion cub or kitten. Its fur is mostly blue, yet there is black fur under its torso. It has a long black tail with a gold four-pointed star on the end. Its forelegs each have a gold ring around them; these are electricity glands, similar to Pikachu's cheeks. It has large, oval ears with gold, star-like symbols on them. It has gold-pupiled eyes, and a pink-red nose. It has tufts of hair which will eventually grow into a mane. Whenever its mouth is open, small fangs can be seen developing.

Gender differences

A female's mane doesn't stick up as much as a male's. Also, all four paws of a female Shinx are blue while the hind-paws of a male are black.

In Anime

Shinx appeared in Not on MY Watch Ya Don't, as Landis's Pokémon.

Shinx and Angie from the anime

Shinx also appeared in the movie The Rise of Darkrai.

Shinx was also seen under Reggie's care in Lost Leader Strategy!.

Angie owns a Shinx which appeared along with her in DP088.

A Shinx appears in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time & Darkness asking Team Poképals to retrieve a Gabite scale to help his sick sister. His sister also makes an appearance at the end of the episode.

Evolution

Shinx evolves into the Pokémon Luxio once it reaches level 15, and evolves into Luxray once it reaches level 30.

Trivia

  • Shinx English name was actually thought to have been Spinx, due to a low quality screenshot.
  • The black collar around Shinx's neck is somewhat similar to the one around Pichu's neck.
  • Spinx is unknown to be a Lion(SpINX) or lynx(lyNX the y is pronounced "eh").
  • The Shinx evolutionary family can be seen as a comparison to the Mareep family: both Shinx and Mareep can be encountered fairly early in their respective games, and both evolve at level 15 and again at level 30.
  • Shinx is the only Generation IV Pokemon with an evolutionary line with 3 Pokemon in it that is never even tried to capture by Ash or Dawn that originated in Generation IV.
  • Shinx's name may come from sphinx, which are Egyption statues that had a head of a man, and a body of a lion, being that shinx is probaly based on a lion.

Origin

Shinx is based on a lion cub.
