Meet Jynx outside of Pokémon GO

Part of the fun of the main series Pokémon The game is knowledge of every kind, which Pokémon GO recreates with brief descriptions in his Pokédex entries. However, studying the roles these Pokémon play in other games, and even anime, can enrich the hunting experience of these creatures in Niantić’s mobile game. In honor of Jynx’s current feature in raids during the 2020 holidays, let’s take a look at this Pokémon knowledge.

Dex entry number 124, Jynx is a double type of ice / psychic type from the Kanto region, introduced to the world Pokémon with generation one. I can only meet this Pokemon as a Woman. Called the “Pokemon of the Human Form,” this is what Jynx’s Dex record says:

Jynx walks rhythmically, swaying and waving his hips as if dancing. His movements are so tempting, that people who see see that they are forced to shake their hips without thinking about what they are doing.


Jynx was initially introduced as a one-tier Pokemon, but got a pre-evolution when Smoochum debuted in Second Generation. Jynx is perhaps one of the most controversial Pokemon and even its appearance has been officially changed due to rainfall. Originally drawn in black leather, critics assumed the Pokémon Company was racism, and some compared it to Dragon Ball zis Mr. Popo. As a result of this reaction, Jynx’s skin changed to purple in full-color media and much lighter gray in manga. These sequences have been edited in episodes of the show in which footage of the original Jynx show was shown.

For anime fans, Jynx’s performances are a little more complicated due to the initial controversy. Jynx made his debut Hi-Jynx vacation and then was highlighted in Miss Mandarin Island Match, Background with Envy, Pacifidlog Jam, i Three Jynx and a baby! but there is one episode, the 250th original episode in Japanese, which has never been translated into English. This episode was banned due to Jynx’s prominence in his original design.

Other Pokédex entries offer new information about Jynx:

  • Diamond / Pearl: The cries sound like human speech. However, it is impossible to say what he is trying to say.
  • Sword: In certain parts of the Galar Jynx was once feared and worshiped as the Ice Queen.
  • Shield: Jynx from Galar often have beautiful and gentle voices. Some of these Pokemon have even gathered a fan base.
