Shinx is a cat-like Pokémon resembling a lion cub or lynx kitten. Its fur is mostly blue, yet there is an arrangement of black fur under its neck like a collar. Its forelegs each have a gold ring around them; these are electricity glands. It has large, oval ears with gold star-like symbols in them, similar to the star on its tail or a fleur-de-lis. Its tufts of hair will eventually grow into a mane and can be seen on the top and rear sides of its head. Whenever its mouth is shown open, small fangs can be seen developing. Its height is 1'08" and weight is 20.9 lbs.
A female's mane doesn't stick up as much as a male's. Also, all four paws of a female Shinx are blue while the hind-paws of a male are black.
All of its fur dazzles if danger is sensed. It flees while the foe is momentarily blinded.
It lives in plains and various grassy areas.
