Diancie (Japanese: ディアンシー Diancie) is a dual-type Rock/Fairy Mythical Pokémon introduced in Generation VI.

While it is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon, Diancie can Mega Evolve into Mega Diancie using the Diancite. This Pokémon is considered a relative of Carbink.

Diancie was officially revealed in the March 2014 issue of CoroCoro magazine.

Biology

Diancie is a small Pokémon with a vaguely humanoid appearance. Its lower body is a conical, gray rock with a large, pink diamond in the side. Its upper body has two arms and is covered by a white material that resembles a dress. Its small, mitten-like hands poke out of the sleeves. Around its neck is a golden, half-circlet with a pink diamond in the center. Its head is gray with purple eyes that have red sclerae and pointed ears. On top of its head is a collection of pink crystals forming a headdress. There are four spike-like crystals along the top, a long crystal on either side hanging downward, and a large circular centerpiece on its forehead. There is a small, golden piece hanging off the center crystal and a small pink diamond embedded in the back of its head.

Diancie is born from a Carbink that undergoes a mysterious mutation. It can instantly create diamonds by compressing the carbon in the air. Diancie uses these diamonds to both attack and defend itself,[1] as evidenced by its signature move Diamond Storm. Diancie's pink, glimmering body is said to be one of the most loveliest sights to experience in the world. Diancie is also said to be one of the most beautiful Pokémon seen in the world. Diancie is found living in underground caves filled with diamonds such as the Diamond Domain, a crystal kingdom where it reigns as queen over many Carbink, as it has occasionally been seen traveling or living with others. Diancie can speak through telepathy, as depicted in the movie Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction.

Forms

Diancie can Mega Evolve into Mega Diancie.

Diancie Mega Evolving

As Mega Diancie, its white dress becomes longer and loses its sleeves. Its lower body turns into a pink crystal and is surrounded by a series of long crystals similar to those on its headdress. On the back, both the dress and the crystals are longer, and additional, smaller crystals are suspended from the tips of the larger ones. The tips of the circlet around its neck curve outward and there is an additional half-circlet around its waist. The centerpiece of its headdress is now heart-shaped, and the remaining crystals are slightly smaller. The crystals hanging from the sides of its head have additional crystals suspended from the tips, and there is an additional hanging crystal on the back of its head. The diamond on the back of its head becomes rounded and two smaller gems form at the lower corners. Two ribbon-like structures grow from these additional gems; each ribbon has two small crystals suspended from the tips. The head diamond measures over 2,000 carats.

Thanks to the Mega Evolution energy, Diancie's manipulation over diamonds has grown so much, that Mega Diancie can now create a sword out of them during battle. Due to the impurities on the surface of body having fallen away, Mega Diancie can now shine so brilliantly that when reflecting light, one cannot look directly at it. In this form, it was known as the "Royal Pink Princess" due to its colors and appearance.[2] Due to it being blessed with both beauty and skill, Mega Diancie can easily adapt quickly to any situation.

It was sought after by the owner of the Shabboneau Castle, who sent his butlers out to obtain Diancie in Glittering Diancie. One of the butlers, actually a thief, found Diancie and attempted to steal it. With the help of Gurkinn, Diantha, and Korrina, the thief was defeated and sent running away. Afterward, Diancie left with its Carbink companions to find a new home.

Trivia

  • Diancie shares the same category name as Carbink. They are both known as the Jewel Pokémon.
  • Diancie is the only Pokémon introduced in Generation VI that is capable of Mega Evolution. It is also the only Mythical Pokémon that is capable of Mega Evolution.
  • Diancie is the only Rock-type Mythical Pokémon, excluding Arceus while holding a Stone Plate.
  • Diancie is tied with Carbink for the highest base Defense stat of all Fairy-type Pokémon.
  • Mega Diancie has the highest base Special Attack stat of all Rock-type Pokémon, as well as the highest base Attack stat of all Fairy-type Pokémon. Mega Diancie is also tied with:
    • Mega Tyranitar for the highest base stat total of all Rock-type Pokémon.
    • Crowned Sword Zacian for the highest base stat total of all Fairy-type Pokémon.
  • Mega Diancie's Defense and Special Defense decrease is the largest single stat decrease of all Mega Evolutions, at 40 points.
  • Diancie's origin as a mutated Carbink is reflected in its near-identical moveset and learn rate, though it learns Trick Room instead of Power Gem in Generation VI.
  • Diancie's Pokédex entry on the official English Pokémon website erroneously states that its gender can be either male or female, despite the fact that it is actually a gender unknown Pokémon, while Mega Diancie is correctly stated to be gender unknown.[3] This error is absent in the Japanese Pokémon Zukan website.[4]

Origin

Diancie could be based on the carbuncle, a mythical fairy-like creature that was rumored to have a jewel embedded on its forehead. Diancie could also be a visual pun derived from the idea of a "princess cut" diamond, referring to its princess-like appearance, although the diamond on the forehead resembles a brilliant cut in its base form and a heart cut in its Mega Evolved form. Its relationship with Carbink may be inspired by eusociality, a biological phenomenon which usually manifests in a colony of animals having a sole breeding female, or queen, tended to by her usually infertile offspring; or an example of a highly rare and unique mutations such as albinism or polydactyly. Alternatively, the transformation from Carbink to Diancie could reference metamorphic rock formation. Diancie, and its Mega Form, could possibly be analogous to various depictions of magical girls across various series. Mega Diancie in particular, being a powered up form, could potentially be compared to a typical magical girl transformation or a powered up super forms often seen in various properties.

Name origin

Diancie may be a combination of diamond, fancy, pixie, and 石 ishi (stone). The -cie could also come from メレシー Melecie (Carbink's Japanese name), reflecting Diancie’s status as a mutated Carbink.
