Yet no body complained about scrafty being based upon inner city youth.

Honestly, I don't remember Jynx ever NOT being purple. :/ Even in Red and Blue, Jynx's skin tone was just a dark shade. And in a game that doesn't have any clearly defined color, that means she could have always been purple.

Because you can't look at Scrafty and mistake him for an offensive caricature like some people mistakenly did with Jynx.

There were several games (plus cards and artwork) where she was clearly black. Not "dark" as it's used to describe human skin tones, but literally the color black.

The same reason Mr. Popo became blue.
People get offended over every stupid little thing.

Jynx became purple b/c unlike in Japan, we don't have the "Blackface" style, so it was taken offensively. Ridiculous, but understandable considering when we got pokemon Anime was still barely getting it's start in other countries.

Because it was ridiculously considered racist.

I hate this ideology that designing a character a certain way makes it racist. And this is coming from a black guy.
