Over 160 Pokémon Gijinkas. Gijinka is the Japanese meaning of "humanoid," "personification." or "anthropomorphic." Rather than referring to just any animal with human characteristics, a gijinka is most often a fan re-design of an animal-like character in a human or humanoid form. The characters often seem to wear a cosplay of the base character rather than having real animal features. There is no real guideline where gijinka ends and anthropomorphism begins.
