Jynx is a fortune-teller. She can read the minds of both humans and Pokémon with her magic ball. Jynx can also determine fortunes based on how her hair falls into place, calling this technique "Hair-O-Mancy". She is a three-time champion of the Fortune-Telling Competition.
She has a younger sister, Smoochum, who is not able to tell fortunes yet.
Jynx appears to be black in the manga and not her current color of purple. As this manga has not been reissued in North America since Jynx's recoloring, she has not been edited to appear purple, unlike Jynx appearing in reissued volumes of Pokémon Adventures.
