Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness Edit

Chugga snagged Baltoy from Browsix in "Episode 7: Hexagon Brothers."

Jinzou was named in "Episode 15: Security Nett" by Furenzu1, as "Jinzou" is Japanese for artificial and it was named after Chugga's favorite card when he played Yu-Gi-Oh. Jinzou evolved into a Claydol in "Episode 27: Gonzap."

  • Jinzou is Emile's:
    • 1st genderless team member.
    • 2nd Ground-Type team member and Unique type combination team member.
    • 3rd team member that used Explosion & Selfdestruct.
    • 4th Psychic-Type team member.
  • Jinzou was nicknamed after a monster from Yu-Gi-Oh! that Joey Wheeler won during Battle City. Like the monster, Jinzou has an immunity to a specific type - Ground-type moves via its Levitate ability.
    • When playing Pokemon Black a second such Pokemon (a red-eyed Basculin nicknamed 'Redeye') can be obtained in a trade. Emile prefers White's version, 'Blueeye', over this one because of the Rock Head ability.
      • Both Basculin are named for Yu-Gi-Oh! monsters, 'Redeye' for the Red-Eyes Black Dragon Joey won off Rex Raptor in Duelist Kingdom (likely preluding to Battle City's ante rule) and 'Blueeye' for Seto Kaiba's signature Blue-Eyes White Dragon.
