Minccino (Japanese: チラーミィ Chiraamyi) is a Normal-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

Biology

Physiology

Minccino is small quadrupedal rodent-based Pokémon that resembles a chinchilla. Its body is mostly covered in silky light grayish fur, and its ears and tail are tipped with patches of cream white fur. Its tail is long, silky, and fluffy. It has large rounded ears with pinkish insides and small tufts of fur on the outside of each ear. It has an upright tuft of fur sprouting from atop its head, large round brownish eyes, a tiny black nose, and a small mouth. A tuft of fur protrudes from beneath its chin. It has short, stubby limbs and small pink paw pads on the undersides of its fore-paws and feet.

Although it is a quadruped (it runs swiftly on all fours), Minccino can stand upright and walk as a biped as well.

The Shiny Minccino has pink fur, with green fluff inside the ear.

Behavior

Minccino are obsessed with neatness and cleanliness. They always keep themselves well-groomed and clean, and are constantly dusting and sweeping with their tails. They use their tails to thoroughly dust unclean objects and sweep their habitats, as they prefer to live in a tidy place. They greet one another by rubbing each other with their fluffy tails, which may also be a way of grooming one another. If they meet someone that they dislike, they will sweep dust onto the person's body.

Special abilities

Minccino are experts at cleanliness. They are very swift Pokémon, and their signature move is Tail Slap.

Evolution

Minccino evolves into Cinccino with the use of a Shiny Stone.

Trivia

  • Minccino is the Pokémon shown in Professor Juniper's introduction in Pokémon Black & White, just as other Pokémon have done.
    • In Pokémon Black 2 & White 2, Professor Juniper evolved her Minccino to a Cinccino as shown in the introduction scene.
  • This Pokémon was revealed along with six other Pokémon in July's issue of CoroCoro on June 11, 2010.

Origin

Minccino is based on a chinchilla. Its tail resembles a broom or feather duster, as they are known to fastidiously clean items and sweep their dens with their tails.

Etymology

Minccino seems to be a combination of the words "mini" and "chinchilla", and possibly "chino cloth" (a type of soft fabric).

Minccino's Japanese name, Chillarmy, is derived from "chinchilla" and "charm", or possibly "army", as chino fabric (which Minccino's English name refers to) was originally designed to be used in the military to make durable, comfortable uniforms for soldiers to wear.
