Minccino is a gray chinchilla-like Pokémon with fur scruffs on its head and neck. It has huge ears on the sides of its head, and its crimson insides are partially hidden by fur tufts. It has big brown eyes and a little dotty nose. It has rounded and short limbs, and its ears and tail have white tips. The tail is likewise quite long and hairy. Minccino uses its tail as a broom or mop to clean its den. Minccino also brushes other members of its species with its tail as a kind of welcome; the one with the fluffier tail will be more proud. It like sparkling stuff and appreciates clean environments, and it is preoccupied with cleaning filthy items. Minccino constantly cleans its tail; if it becomes filthy, Minccino will wash it in fresh spring water. Tail Slap was its trademark move before to Generation VIII.
