Born to a clan famous for producing talents Warriors who fight alongside Electric-type Pokémon. Fiercely proud, she does not forgive easily.
Ginchiyo is based on the real-life Tachibana Ginchiyo of Japanese history. Muneshige was her husband and Dōsetsu (Tachibana Dōsetsu) was her father. The Tachibana served as retainers to the Ōtomo clan, which included Sōrin (Ōtomo Sōrin). Her father-in-law, Shōun (Takahashi Shōun), was also a retainer of the Ōtomo.
- In Japanese history, Tachibana Ginchiyo's father, Tachibana Dōsetsu, gained the epithet "Thunder God" (雷神 Raijin) after surviving being struck by lightning (described in myth as Dōsetsu having cut in two the thunder god inside the lightning with his sword, Chidori). Ginchiyo's Electric-type specialty and status as Warlord of Ransei's Electric-type kingdom is a reference to this relation.
