Claydol (Japanese: ネンドール Nendooru) is a Ground/Psychic-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

Biology

Physiology

Claydol has a large black body with two short legs. It has a protrusion on top of its head. Claydol has several large, pink eyes and a white, wavy pattern, both going around its round head. Its eyes have a pattern of alternating between being open and closed. It also has cannon like arms separate from its body which it keeps close by levitating them with its psychic powers. Some people think Claydol is made out of clay. Claydol has to stay out of the rain or it will melt.

Natural abilities

Claydol is a doll made out of mud. Said to have come to life after exposure to a mysterious beam, it floats using its telekinetic powers. Claydol can learn beam based attacks such as Charge Beam, Psybeam, Signal Beam, Ice Beam, Solar Beam, and finally, Hyper Beam, which it learns after evolving from Baltoy at level 36.

Evolution

Claydol evolves from Baltoy once it reaches level 36.

Trivia

  • Claydol has the highest Special Defense base stat of all Ground-type Pokémon.
  • No other Pokémon has the same type combination as Claydol and its pre-evolution.
  • The symbols on Claydol's chest and back resemble the Q form of Unown.

Origin

Claydol is based on the Shakōki-dogū, a clay figurine from the Jōmon period of Japanese history. It may also be based on a dreidel, a spinning top associated with the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah (it being made of clay may be in reference to the traditional Hanukkah song "I Have a Little Dreidel," the first two lines being "I have a little dreidel/I made it out of clay"), in accordance with several other Hoennese Pokémon based on Judeo-Christian religion. 

Etymology

Claydol's name is a combination of the words "clay" (the substance that it's made from) and "doll" or "idol." It may also incorporate "dreidel."

Nendōru is a portmanteau of 粘土 (nendo, clay), 念動 (nendō, telekinesis), "doll," and "idol."
