Herdier (Japanese: ハーデリア Haaderia) is a Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

Biology

Physiology

Herdier is a quadrupedal, slightly chubby mammalian canine Pokémon. Most of its body is brown and some parts are dark blue. It has very large ears and what looks like a mustache and forehead hair in the shape of a "W". It has small neat paws and what seems like a blue cover over its body and tail.

Behavior

Herdier have a docile temperament in general. Although they're not talented at battling, they observe and analysies their opponets calmly before giving them an unexpected attack. Also, they detest evilness and care for their trainers deeply, and they know how to teach their teammates effectively, so they're good choices to be mentors of young Pokémon.

Evolution

Herdier evolved from Lillipup at level 16. It evolves into Stoutland at level 32.

Trivia

Herdier is one of a few Pokémon in Black and White that, rather than have a synthesized sound serving as its cry, it has a more realistic cry, sounding like a barking dog.

  • Despite being visibly chubby, Herdier can't have Thick Fat as an Ability. It can, however, have Sand Rush despite not being associated with deserts.

Origin

Herdier is based on a slightly chubby Scottish and/or Yorkshire terrier.

Etymology

Herdier's name is most likely derived from a combination of the words "herder" and "terrier", since Yorkshire Terriers may have been used for herding in the past.

Hāderia comes from "herd," "terrier," and possibly "heart" due to its caring nature.
