Smoochum (Japanese: ムチュール Muchul) is a dual-type Ice/Psychic baby Pokémon.

It evolves into Jynx starting at level 30.

Biology

Smoochum is a small, humanoid Pokémon that resembles a baby. It has a large head with blonde hair that reaches its shoulders and has large bangs. There are several tufts of hair sticking up on top of its head. Its skin is light purple skin with a cream-colored chest, arms and feet. It has large, blue-green eyes and a pair of large, pink lips. These lips are sensitive enough that Smoochum uses them to identify and examine objects that it sees for the first time.

When walking, Smoochum rocks its head back and forth. This Pokémon is very active and runs about, although it often falls. Being very conscious of its appearance, it will check is reflection when given the chance to make sure it is not dirty. Smoochum is found living in cities. Smoochum is a female only species, with no male counterpart.

Trivia

A Smoochum Purple Pokémon mini

Origin

Smoochum may be based on ガン黒 ganguro, blonde-haired, tanned Japanese girls, but is meant to resemble an otherwise normal human child. Yuki Onna, a possible origin for Jynx, is sometimes shown as holding a seemingly human child. Smoochum could also be based on the legend of Kintarō, a human child raised by the Yama Uba, another possible origin of Jynx.

Name origin

Smoochum is derived from smooch (a kiss). It also may be a combination of smooch and chum (friend). It may also be a pun on "smooch 'em."

Muchul is a combination of 夢中 muchū (daze or trance) and ちゅう chu (the sound of a kiss).
