Pokemon Weekly - What's the deal with Jynx?

Pokemon X and Y has been out long enough that it might not need a weekly video show, but that doesn't mean we're done with pocket monsters. Not by a long shot! Welcome to the newly christened Pokemon Weekly! Now, each video will explore a strange corner of the Pokemon universe, or even explain crazy news as it breaks. This inaugural show tries to figure out if Jinx is a succubus! And after you see us deconstruct that, be sure to check out our Pokemon X and Y reviewcomplete Pokedex, and guides to Mega Stone locations and Pokemon-amie, along with subscribing to our YouTube channel so you don't miss another episode.

Pokemon Weekly is GamesRadar's weekly Pokemon X and Y show. The title was a pretty obvious hint. Come back every Tuesday for the latest news, analysis, and speculation about the next generation of Pocket Monsters. You can also check out our Pokemon X and Y review.

    still think jirachi is the creepiest, more deceptive than mawile with its gut eye and it's signature move is doom desire, should trade places with yveltal

    Just pointing it out because it's bothering me, Henry you said Morrigan is from Darksiders, when you meant to say Darkstalkers.

    Gametheory kicked their butts off in a 3 part Pokemon analysis, and they couldn't justify jinx, except later after those, Mathew finally found the exact possible thing Jinx is based off of, you guys should check it out, its called Jinx Justified by Gametheory

    Yeah, he did a great job on his pokemon episodes, everyone should check out his Gametheroy videos.

    I am Miguel. And I am Tulio. And they call us Miguel and Tulio. Tulio and Miguel. Mighty and powerful gods.

    Ive always hated Jynx and Mr.Mime, basically all humanoid pokemon other than mewtwo.
  • BladedFalcon - December 11, 2013 10:56 a.m.

    Hitmonchan... Throh... Sawk...
  • shawksta - December 11, 2013 11:58 a.m.

    Throh and Sawk are hilarious, even moreso that they look like Bert and Ernie from sesame street.
  • Frieza - December 11, 2013 1:19 p.m.

    Exactly why I hate them.
  • shawksta - December 11, 2013 3:11 p.m.

    I dont mind that honestly. Though i am a bit shattered by the fact that Sawk's shiny ISNT Yellow while Throh IS Orange. They almost got it right.
  • Doctalen - December 11, 2013 2:02 p.m.

    I can't believe I never noticed that before 0__0 I am totally going to get them, name them Bert and Ernie and use them in a doubles battle now
  • shawksta - December 11, 2013 3:11 p.m.

    If you do, try to get a shiny Throh, its Orange, just like Ernie XD
  • Doctalen - December 11, 2013 3:17 p.m.

    the lolz alone would be worth every lose XD
  • codystovall - December 11, 2013 3:34 p.m.

    Hitmonchan okay, say for the skirt/girdle thing which is somethin else I hate, clothes on pokemon, which these humanoids usually share in common.

    Ah, much better. Jynx is most likely a combination of you guys said as well as something known as Ganguro. Ganguro is a fashion trend that was very popular among teenage girls in Japan in the 90's, the same time Pokemon was being developed. Girls would dye their hair blond, darken their skin, and wear lots of makeup. This explains some of Jynx's physical appearences, while you guys covered the personality side.
  • shawksta - December 11, 2013 10:44 a.m.

    Close, but not exact, there's another form of the ganguro type, which is based on a Mythological witch. THAT is what jinx is based off of, or atleast we closest we can compare it to.

    Sorry everyone, my bad. It has been fixed!
  • J-Fid - December 10, 2013 7:31 p.m.

    Joining the "wrong video" bandwagon.
  • SonicHunter - December 10, 2013 6:15 p.m.

    Somebody posted the wrong video!
  • codystovall - December 10, 2013 5:55 p.m.
