Anime

Goh's Nidoran♀.

Emily had a Nidoran♀ that evolved into a Nidorina in Wherefore Art Thou, Pokémon?. Goh owns a Nidoran♀ that he caught in PJ020.

Trivia

Origin

Nidoran♀ is mostly based on small mammalian animals, mainly mice, rabbits, or porcupines. It may also be based on some venomous mammals, mainly the insectivore types. The two Nidorans altogether seem to be based on the concept of sexual dimorphism in which two genders of the same animal species have two very different appearances.

Etymology

Nidoran♀ may come from cnidocyte (a type of cell responsible for the venom in stinging animals) and ran (orchid in Japanese, orchids can be either blue or purple, just like the colors of the two Nidorans). It may also derive from needle. ♀ signifies it being an only-female species.
