Cinccino is a small rodent-based Pokémon that resembles a chinchilla; it bears a very strong resemblance to its pre-evolution, Minccino. It possesses two tails. Its fur is mainly gray, and it has very fluffy and silky pure white tufts of fur encircling its ears and head, wrapped around its neck like a collar, and covering its very long, voluminous tails. Its long, silky white tails wrap around its body like a scarf. It has short, small paws and feet, and paw pads on the undersides on its fore-paws and feet. Like Minccino, it has large, round ears with pink insides and fluffy tufts on the outsides. Its face is practically identical to Minccino's, with ovular brownish eyes and a tiny nose and mouth.
Like its pre-evolution, Cinccino is a very cleanly Pokémon that always keeps its fur neat and tidy. Its white fur feels amazingly silky soft to the touch.
The fur covering Cinccino's body is coated in a special oily substance that enables it to deflect opponents' attacks in battle. Their extremely silky white fur repels dust and prevents the buildup of static electricity. Its signature move is Tail Slap, which can be seriously damaging when paired with Cinccino's Technician ability. Cinccino is also extremely swift and can run at surprisingly high speeds; this is apparent both its in-game stats, and in PokéPark 2: Wonders Beyond, when Cinccino challenges the player to a game of tag.
