Scarlett's Shinx is the first Pokémon Scarlett catches in the Kalos region.


Prior to the series

Not much about Shinx's past is known. The only thing known is that he was constantly seen roaming in the streets of Lumiose City.

Kalos Saga

Shinx appears in Kalos 1: Starting Journey! as the first wild Pokémon Scarlett comes across before leaving Lumiose City. He is set to battle Scarlett's Purrloin and after a good hard-fought battle, Shinx eventually lets him get captured after seeing Scarlett's fighting spirit.

Personality and characteristics

Before being captured, Shinx was a very wary Pokémon, probably due to something from his past. He would normally avoid trainers and Pokémon. But, despite his wariness he does enjoy a good Pokémon Battle and usually finds himself interested when he sees a trainer with fighting spirit, as seen when he sees Scarlett and her Eevee. Once being captured, Shinx becomes very friendly and cheerful always helping Scarlett. Shinx, like Scarlett, loves a good battle and will not give up even if the opponent has a type advantage.

  • Shinx wasn't even going to be caught by Scarlett, but the idea was added due to rethinking.
  • Shinx is Scarlett's first official caught Pokémon since she was given Vulpix as a present so it does not really count.
