Diancie (Japanese: ディアンシー Diancie) is a dual-type Rock/Fairy Mythical Pokémon introduced in Generation VI.

While it is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon, Diancie can Mega Evolve into Mega Diancie using the Diancite. This pokemon is considered a relative of Carbink.

Diancie was officially revealed in the March 2014 issue of CoroCoro magazine.

Biology[]

Diancie is a small Pokémon with a vaguely humanoid appearance. Its lower body is a conical, gray rock with a large, pink diamond in the side. Its upper body has two arms and is covered by a white material that resembles a dress. Its small, mitten-like hands poke out of the sleeves. Around its neck is a golden, half-circlet with a pink diamond in the center. Its head is gray with purple eyes that have red sclerae and pointed ears. On top of its head is a collection of pink crystals forming a headdress. There are four spike-like crystals along the top, a long crystal on either side hanging downward, and a large circular centerpiece on its forehead. There is a small, golden piece hanging off the center crystal and a small pink diamond embedded in the back of its head.

Diancie is born from a Carbink that undergoes a mysterious mutation. It can instantly create diamonds by compressing the carbon in the air. Diancie's pink, glimmering body is said to be one of the most loveliest sights to experience in the world. Diancie is found living in underground caves filled with diamonds such as the Diamond Domain, a crystal kingdom where it reigns as queen over many Carbink, as it has occasionally been seen traveling or living with other. As seen in the anime, Diancie can speak through telepathy.

Diancie is the only known Pokémon capable of learning the move Diamond Storm.

Forms[]

Diancie can Mega Evolve into Mega Diancie. Diancie Mega Evolving As Mega Diancie, its white dress becomes longer and loses its sleeves. Its lower body turns into a pink crystal and is surrounded by a series of long crystals similar to those on its headdress. On the back, both the dress and the crystals are longer, and additional, smaller crystals are suspended from the tips of the larger ones. The tips of the circlet around its neck curve outward and there is an additional half-circlet around its waist. The centerpiece of its headdress is now heart-shaped, and the remaining crystals are slightly smaller. The crystals hanging from the sides of its head have additional crystals suspended from the tips, and there is an additional hanging crystal on the back of its head. The diamond on the back of its head becomes rounded and two smaller gems form at the lower corners. Two ribbon-like structures grow from these additional gems; each ribbon has two small crystals suspended from the tips.

Mega Diancie is known as the "Royal Pink Princess" due to its noble appearance. Thanks to the Mega Evolution energy, Diancie's manipulation over diamonds has grown so much, that Mega Diancie can now create a sword out of them during battle.
