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.
