(Redirected from Shizue)

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 against Ash's Turtwig 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 used it to defeat James and Mime Jr.

Chingling (×3)
Francesca's three Chingling perform in her magic shows, adding their harmonic tones and cute charm to the acts. The Chingling each wear a differently colored ribbon to differentiate one from the others.

The Chingling with the green ribbon was particularly friendly and tended to interrupt Francesca's performances. Ash and his friends decided to have a battle against this 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 used Razor Leaf, which knocked it out instantly. Later, James was drawn to this Chingling and took it for himself. After James's Mime Jr. used Teeter Dance, Chingling became confused and attacked Mime Jr. with two different attacks. The group believed the battle had matured Chingling, though it still asked them for a hug afterwards.

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