Carbink (Japanese: メレシー Melecie) is a dual-type Rock/Fairy Pokémon.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

Biology

Carbink is a gray Pokémon that resembles a rock covered in light-blue crystals such as an ore. A white, fluffy collar separates this Pokémon's limbless body and head. Carbink has blue eyes, a light-blue crystal on top of its head and big, flat rhomboid ears. It can fire energy beams from the crystal in its head.

Carbink is born from temperatures and pressure underground, and it has slept for millions of years since its birth. Some have been unearthed during cave excavations. Rarely, Carbink will undergo a strange mutation and transform into Diancie.

Trivia

  • Carbink has the highest base Defense of all Fairy types, with a base stat of 150.

Origin

Carbink could be based on the carbuncle, a mythical fairy-like creature that was rumored to have gemstones growing out of it. Its appearance is likely based on an ore, a type of rock that contains minerals with important elements which are valued for a high price.

Name origin

Carbink may be a combination of carbuncle, carbon (element diamonds are composed of), carat, and tink (to tinkle).

Melecie may be a combination of melée (small cut diamonds), 珍しい mezurashii (rare), and 石 ishi (stone).
