Francesca and one of her Chingling

Francesca (Japanese: シズエ Shizue) is a Pokémon Magician and a character of the day who appeared in The Bells Are Singing!.

Francesca performs with three Chingling. One of them, wearing a green ribbon, seemed to have a little more personality than the other two, being very energetic. It loved to meet new people and would hug them. Francesca tried to use it in a battle in order to discipline it, but it was weak. Her training exercises were very difficult, even though she was dealing with small Pokémon.

After Team Rocket kidnapped her three Chingling, James grew fond of the Chingling wearing the green ribbon, as it reminded him of his Chimecho. Later on, Francesca gained more confidence in Chingling and was able to battle against James and Mime Jr. with it and win.

Francesca's Chingling
Chingling (×3)
Francesca's three Chingling work with her and her magic tricks, but they tend to cause only trouble for her. Ash and his friends decided to have a battle against one of the Chingling to help it mature. Francesca, having never battled before, agreed. Chingling was told to use Astonish, but it didn't attack. Ash's Turtwig then used Razor Leaf on it knocking it out. When James's Mime Jr. used Teeter Dance, Chingling became confused and attacked Mime Jr. with two different attacks. The group believed that the battle had matured Chingling, though it still asked them for a big hug afterward.

Chingling's known moves are Astonish, Hidden Power, and Confusion.
