Jynx was in fact black-skinned in the Red & Blue days. But due to its skincolor and human-like shape, it was considered racial towards black-skinned. The original Jynx episode was banned, and GameFreak changed Jynx apperence.

Just had another look at Bulbapedia, and yeah. My answer was in fact wrong.

Some say that Jynx was really a racial appearance from it's black face in original games. So I guess that they changed it? Maybe or it was supposed to be purple after all I think.
