Shinx is about average for a basic pokemon. Shinx and his evolution's seen to be much better in the attack category. This is bad for electric types due to most electric type moves being SP ATK. Though with moves like Wild charge Shinx and his/her future forms very useful.
Shinx can be seen as a lion or as a lynx kitten. If a shinx sences danger its fur will shine brightly to blind predators so the shinx can flee.
Male and female are distinguished by their paws. The male have black and the female have blue paws. Female shinx head fer is usually shorter than a males.
2. Wow shinx 2 op needs nerf
Shinx is the low level electric type of the Diamond and Pearl Poke'mon games for DS, the equivalent of Pikachu in R/B/G/Y/FR/LG, Mareep in G/S/C, and Elektrike in R/S/E. Shinx is statistically, the worst. It has high attack and low special attack, making its electric attacks weak. Even with a Same Type Attack Bonus (STAB) it rarely is able to accumulate much damage. The only STAB attack it learns that actually makes use of it's high attack is a new move called Thunder Fang, which it dosn't learn till level 33.
2. The word Shinx is also used somtimes used in a way akin to the term 'noob', though this deffinition is not outlandishly popular. Wether or not this use originated from the pokemon is unknown.
