Dedenne (デデンネ Dedenne) is an Electric/Fairy-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VI.

Biology

Physiology

Dedenne is a small, rodent-like Pokémon. Most of its round, pudgy body is a vibrant orange color, and it has a cream-colored belly. It has a very long, black, wire-like tail and spiny, black whiskers on its reddish-orange cheek patches. It has small oval ears that are black on the outside with cream-colored insides. Dedenne has small, black eyes, a tiny black nose, and small, sharp incisor teeth. Its feet and paws are short and stubby, with tiny digits.

Behavior

Dedenne send and receive electrical waves using their whiskers in order to communicate with others over vast distances, as a means to alert the location of food or electricity. They use their long cord-like tail to absorb electricity. Due to their rather weak self-generation for electricity, they tend to sneak into homes and steal electricity from people's outlets.

Natural Abilities

Being a member of the Pikachu-family Pokémon, Dedenne can emit electricity from its cheek pouches. 

Evolution

Dedenne does not evolve.

Pokédex entries

  • X

    Its whiskers serve as antennas. By sending and receiving electrical waves, it can communicate with others over vast distances.

  • Y

  • Omega Ruby

    Its whiskers serve as antennas. By sending and receiving electrical waves, it can communicate with others over vast distances.

  • Alpha Sapphire

    It uses its tail to absorb electricity from power plants or from outlets in houses, and then it fires the electricity from its whiskers.

  • Ultra Sun

    It sneaks into people’s homes and steals electricity from their outlets. When your electric bill seems off, it’s the handiwork of this rascal.

  • Ultra Moon

    Its upper whiskers are sensors that survey its surroundings. Its lower whiskers are organs that shoot electricity.

  • Sword

    A Dedenne's whiskers pick up electrical waves other Dedenne send out. These Pokémon share locations of food or electricity with one another.

  • Shield

    Since Dedenne can't generate as much electricity on its own, it steals electricity from outlets or other electric Pokémon.

Clemont's Dedenne

Main article: Clemont's Dedenne

Clemont caught a Dedenne in A Shockingly Cheeky Friendship! as Bonnie wished for it.

Trivia

  • Despite being part fairy-Type, it can only learn two fairy-Type moves.
  • In Super Smash Bros., Dedenne is one of the Pokémon that can be freed from Poké Balls. During this time, it uses the move Discharge.
  • Dedenne is tied with Morpeko with the smallest Pikaclone, as it is only 8 inches tall.

Origin

Dedenne is based on a hamster or woodland jumping mouse. Its type could be a reference to La petite souris (the little mouse), the French version of the Tooth Fairy and is depicted as a mouse. Its whiskers resemble analogue TV antennae.

Etymology

Dedenne's name comes from 電気 [denki] (electricity), ねずみ [nezumi] (mouse) and antenne (French for antenna). It may also derive from デブ [debu] (fat), referring to its chubby appearance. Whilst most languages simply have Dedenne's name as a transcription of the same English word, its Chinese name is derived from 咚咚 [Dōngdōng], a transliteration from a part of the Japanese name (デデ - dede), and 鼠 [Shǔ], mouse.

Names in other languages

  • English, Italian, Spanish, French and German: Dedenne
  • Chinese: 咚咚鼠
  • Korean:: 데덴네
