Biology

Physiology

Jynx-blackface

Jynx's original design

Jynx are the most humanoid Pokémon in the franchise. It strongly resembles a blonde woman with a dark complexion in a flowing, deep-red dress, the bottom of which flows around it, while the top of which has a yellow chest plate with two red circular objects that most closely resemble female breasts, as well as luscious lips. The unbelievably rare, Shiny version is a Jynx with a much brighter shade of violet skin, vermilion dress color, and near white blonde hair. Jynx originally had black skin. This was dropped due to many people thinking it was a racist stereotype known as blackface, when someone would paint their face black and apply pink makeup around their lips to mock African-Americans.

Special abilities

Jynx can have the ability Oblivious or the ability Forewarn. Oblivious grants Jynx immunity to infatuation. Forewarn allows Jynx to identify the opponent's move with the highest attack power.

Evolution

Jynx is the evolved form of Smoochum as of level 30.

Trivia

  • Jynx originally appeared as having black skin, but Pokémon was forced to change its skin color to purple, as many players complained that it appeared to be a "racist" Pokémon apparently looking like a black-face (black-face is an racist act involving painting the face black and making the lips appear large and pink). It has also received criticism for apparently looking like an overweight drag queen (a male that dresses as a female for the purpose of entertainment).
  • No other Pokémon has the same type combination as Jynx and its pre-evolution, Smoochum.
  • Jynx has the longest cry of any Pokémon.
  • Jynx is the only Pokémon that doesn't have any vocals in its name.
