Biology

Physiology

Salandit is a salamander-like Pokémon with black-colored skin and reddish-orange markings on its back. It has squinting purple eyes, a mouth filled with black, jagged teeth, and a pair of ear-like appendages on the back of its neck.

Behavior

Although they aren't very strong Pokémon, Salandit are terribly cunning and can confuse opponents during battles.

Characteristics

It is able to secrete a cocktail of flames and noxious gas from the tip of its tail. Female Salandit are able to produce special pheromones that attract mates and humans, which can control the victims who have sniffed them.

Pokédex entries

  • Sun

    It burns its bodily fluids to create a poisonous gas. When its enemies become disoriented from inhaling the gas, it attacks them.

  • Moon

    Volcanoes or dry, craggy places are its home. It emanates a sweet-smelling poisonous gas that attracts bug Pokémon, then attacks them.

  • Ultra Sun

    The males will do whatever the females tell them. They give the females most of their food. Due to malnutrition, the males can’t evolve.

  • Ultra Moon

    It weakens opponents and sends them reeling with its poisonous gas. Salandit doesn’t deal well with Spinda, since it’s always reeling.

Trivia

  • Salandit is the third Pokémon to be named after the salamander, the other two being Charmander and Salamence.
  • Salandit is the first Poison-type that is able to poison every type, including its own primary type, with its ability Corrosion.
  • Salandit is one of the five Pokémon whose evolution depends on its gender. It shares this trait with Burmy, Combee, Kirlia and Snorunt.

Origin

Salandit is based on a salamander, specifically a fire-bellied newt (which has bright orange markings to warn predators of its poisonous secretions). The fact only females evolve may be a reference to the all-female whiptail lizard. The black marking on its face and the ear-like appendages resemble a mask worn by burglars or possibly ninjas.

Etymology

Salandit is a combination of the words salamander and bandit.
