Jynx (ルージュラ Ruujura) is an Ice/Psychic-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

Biology

Physiology

Jynx is a humanoid Pokémon. She strongly resembles a blonde-haired woman with a purple complexion in a flowing, deep-red dress. The bottom of which flows around it, while the top of which has a yellow chest plate with two red circular objects that most closely resemble female breasts, as well as luscious pink lips.

Jynx originally had black skin, which was dropped due to the resemblance to "blackface" and the response of a small group of activists to the resemblance.

Natural abilities

Jynx can have the ability Oblivious or the ability Forewarn. Oblivious grants Jynx immunity to infatuation. Forewarn allows Jynx to identify the opponent's move with the highest attack power.

Evolution

Jynx is the evolved form of Smoochum as of level 30.

Appearances

Anime

Jynx appeared early in the anime, but because of her black skin, episodes where she made small cameos had them cut out in US airings of the dub until the Advanced Generation series, when she had her purple skin.

Trivia

  • Jynx originally appeared as having black skin, but the companies behind Pokémon changed its skin color to purple, as some players complained that it appeared to be a racist Pokémon reminiscent of 'black-face' ('black-face' is the act of painting the face black and making the lips appear large and pink as a derogatory portrayal of Black people). It has also received criticism for resembling a drag queen (a male that dresses as a female for the purpose of entertainment).
  • Jynx has the longest cry of any Pokémon.
    • This excludes the glitch Pokémon, .
  • In Pokémon HOME, there is an unused Jynx cry with reverb similar to Mega Evolved Pokémon. It is possible that this is a scrapped cry and that Jynx may have originally gotten a Mega Evolution.
    • Further proving this point, Jynx is one of the Pokémon who had its trademark updated around the release of Pokémon X & Y. Unlike the other Pokémon who got their trademark updated, Jynx did not receive any alternate form.

Origin

Black Pete, a possible origin of Jynx, as portrayed on a candy wrapping

Jynx is based on the Yuki-onna or Yama-uba. The Yuki-onna and Yama-uba share many traits with Jynx, such as having no feet, living in snowy mountains (hence why Jynx is part Ice type), a red tattered kimono, and are all female. Jynx may also be based on ganguro (a Japanese fashion style mostly popular with women that involves heavy tanning and questions traditional Japanese ideas of beauty), a stereotypical opera singer (based on Brunhilde, a Viking character from Richard Wagner's Ring Cycle), or simply someone suffering from frostbite (hence its odd skin color).

According the episode Holiday Hi-Jynx, Jynx might also be based on the very popular traditional holiday character Black Pete.

Etymology

Jynx is a misspelling of "jinx", meaning both "curse" and a phrase people sometimes say when two people say the same thing at the same time, both alluding to its Psychic type.

Rūjura comes from "rouge" (French for "red," referring to its dress or lipstick) and the feminine suffix -la.
