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.
