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.

  • Sword

    Its venom sacs produce a fluid that this Pokémon then heats up with the flame in its tail. This process creates Salandit's poisonous gas.

  • Shield

    This sneaky Pokémon will slink behind its prey and immobilize it with poisonous gas before the prey even realizes Salandit is there.

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.
  • Salandit and its evolution Salazzle are the first Poison/Fire-type Pokémon.
  • Game Freak designer James Turner once stated that Salandit is his favourite Pokémon in one of his deleted tweets.

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.
