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

It evolves into Luxio starting at level 15, which evolves into Luxray starting at level 30.

Biology

Physiology

Shinx is based on a lion cub or kitten. Its fur is mostly blue, yet there is an arrangement of black fur under its neck like a collar. Its forelegs each have a gold ring around them; these are electricity glands. It has large, oval ears with gold star-like symbols in them, similar to the star on its tail or a fleur-de-lis. Its tufts of hair will eventually grow into a mane and can be seen on the top and rear sides of its head. Whenever its mouth is shown 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.

Special abilities

As a defense mechanism, its fur can glow brightly to blind predators so it can escape. As an Electric-type, Shinx can also use moves such as Charge and Spark.

Behavior

All of its fur dazzles if danger is sensed. It flees while the foe is momentarily blinded.

Habitat

It lives in plains and various grassy areas. This may relate to how it is based on a lion.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

In the wild, Shinx, Luxio, and Luxray generally hunt for food.
