I resemble a lion cub. I have large oval ears that stick out from the
sides of my head. I have large yellow eyes with white pupils. My nose
is red. My tail ends in what looks like a four-pointed star. I have
bands of yellow fur around my forelegs, just above the paws. I have a
black ring of fur around my neck, which has two downward-facing points
in the middle. Male Shinx manes are longer than ours, as they stick up
higher. Male Shinx also have all-black hind legs, we females have blue
paws on all of our legs.
Upon sensing danger, we shoot out a dazzling light from every hair on
our bodies. While the opponent is blinded, we take the opportunity to
quickly escape. The yellow pattern on our ears and tails is
reminiscent of flashes of light.
Our electricity is generated by the yellow bands on our front legs,
much like Pikachu's cheeks.
