Whimsicott looks just as offensive as Jynx does, and they are both based on something not offensive.

Jynx could legitimately be mistaken for a racist caricature by someone who is not familiar with Japanese legends.

Whimiscott is just a ball of cotton with some sheep-like traits. There's nothing racist about it.

Because the bleeding heart politically-correct lawsuit crowd are always on the hunt for something new and harmless to "BAWWWWW" about.

I don't see how either could be racist.
I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.

It definitely looks like it is based on the American slavery era. It has dark brown skin, its bipedal, and its based on cotton. I'm not saying it IS based on that, but it easily could be mistaken for that just as Jynx could be.

Fixed.
1. The only fool bigger than the person who knows it all is the person who argues with him. 2. They're all complacent sheeple.

So that must mean this has to do with Charizard in some way right?
