Shinx (Japanese: コリンク Kolink) is an Template:Type2 Pokémon.

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

Biology

Physiology

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 "fleur de lis" 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; these can be seen on top and on the 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.

Behavior

Habitat

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

In the wild, Shinx, Luxio, and Luxray generally hunt for food. Evidence of this is plainly given in Luxray's Pokédex entry: "It has eyes that can see through anything... it can spot prey hidden behind solid objects."

In the anime

Angie and her Shinx

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

Shinx also appeared in the movie The Rise of Darkrai. In the garden, Dawn's Piplup got into a fight with it over a Pecha Berry. They eventually began a fight among all the Pokémon. Not too long after, they were calmed down when Alice started playing Oración. Shinx decided to split the fruit in half and share the other with Piplup.

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

Angie owns a Shinx which appeared along with her in Camping It Up!. It also appeared in Up Close and Personable!, Ghoul Daze!, One Team, Two Team, Red Team, Blue Team! and If the Scarf Fits, Wear It!.

It also appeared in a flashback in Aiding the Enemy.

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.

A Shinx also appeared in One Big Happiny Family! in Jessie's fantasy.

A Shinx can be seen from the back in To Thine Own Pokémon Be True!

Trivia

  • Shinx bears a resemblance to a hoax Pokémon that was created on April Fool's Day 2005.
  • Shinx's English name was originally thought to be "Spinx" because of a low quality photo with its name on it.

Origin

Shinx is based on a lion cub.

Name origin

Shinx seems to come from shining and lynx. It may also be a portmanteau of the words shock or shine and either lynx, Sphynx or Sphinx. Its Japanese name may come from 子ko, child, and blink or lynx.

In other languages

  • German: Sheinux - From Schein (shine, glow) and Latin lux (light).
  • French: Lixy
  • Korean: 꼬링크 Kkolink
