Cinccino (Japanese: チラチーノ Chillaccino) is a Normal-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

It evolves from Minccino when exposed to a Shiny Stone.

Biology

 
Cinccino cleaning itself

Cinccino is a furry, gray, chinchilla-like Pokémon. It has large ears located to the sides of its head, with red insides partly covered by tufts of fur. Its eyes are large and brown, with a small, rounded nose. Its limbs are somewhat rounded and small, and its tail is long, fluffy, and incredibly white in color. Cinccino also has two large long fluffs on its head that wrap around its back.

Cinccino uses its long fur as a scarf. Its fur is coated in a special oil that repels enemy attacks, and can also be used as a skin treatment. Its fur feels amazing to touch, and it repels dust and prevents static electricity from building up. Prior to Generation VIII, Cinccino and its pre-evolved form were the only known Pokémon capable of learning Tail Slap.

Trivia

  • Due to an error, Cinccino is unable to learn Thief via TM in Pokémon Black and White, while its pre-evolved form Minccino does. This issue was later fixed in Black 2 and White 2.
  • Cinccino and its pre-evolved form were designed by Atsuko Nishida, and almost no changes were made to her original designs. They were intended to be parallels of Kanto's Clefairy and Clefable; Pokémon that everyone would think was cute. Nishida was hired specifically for her reputation in Game Freak for her skill in designing cute characters.[1]

Origin

Cinccino seems to be based on a chinchilla. Its white "hair" is very similar in appearance to high-class women's hairstyles in the early 1600s. The white fur draped around its neck resembles shawls, scarfs, and boas, possibly a reference to how chinchillas are controversially hunted for their fur.

Name origin

Cinccino and Chillaccino may be a combination of chinchilla and chino cloth. The suffix -ino or -cino is also a diminutive to denote something small.
