Shedinja (ヌケニン Nukenin) is a Bug/Ghost-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III. It is born from the remains of Nincada when it evolves into Ninjask.

Biology

Behavior

Shedinja is an evolutionary byproduct of Nincada's evolution; the discarded husk. This Pokémon is said to have originated from a discarded bug shell, which then came to life. Peering into the crack on its back is said to steal one's spirit.

Natural abilities

No matter how much a Shedinja is trained, its HP always stays at one as its special ability, Wonder Guard which allows it to take no damage, except from super effective moves.

Trivia

  • No other Pokémon has the same type combination as Shedinja.
  • Shedinja has the lowest base stat total of all fully evolved Pokémon.
  • Similar to Ninjask, Shedinja's Attack and Defence are a reverse of Nincada's.
  • Shedinja is also the only fully evolved Pokémon who has a lower base stat total than its pre-evolved form.
  • Shedinja is the only genderless Pokémon that is related by evolution to a Pokémon that can have a gender.
  • When it first appears, it knows all the same moves as the Ninjask that spawned it, but its learnset from then onward is entirely different.
  • In Generation III, Shedinja will appear in the player's party occupying the same type of Poké Ball that the Nincada host was caught with. From Generation OF onwards, the player must have a regular Poké Ball in their bag for Shedinja to appear.
  • Shedinja's ability, Wonder Guard, was commonly hacked onto the Dark/Ghost-type Sableye and Spiritomb, since those two Pokémon had no weaknesses, making them immune to direct damage. These were often referring to as "Wondereye" and "Wondertomb" respectively.
    • This was until Pokémon X/Y came along, which introduced the Fairy-type, making "Wondereye" and "Wondertomb" hacks less useful.

1 HP

  • Shedinja has the lowest HP of all Pokémon.
    • Despite having only one HP, Shedinja is able to learn Substitute, though it always fails when used due to its HP.
    • It can also learn Bide and Rest, but like Substitute, those moves will always fail.
  • Despite HP being its lowest stat, Shedinja ironically gives out 2 HP EVs when defeated.
  • HP EVs are completely useless for Shedinja, since it can never have more than 1 HP.
  • Weather like Sandstorm and Hail affects Shedinja, causing it to faint, unless it is holding the Safety Goggles.
  • Because it only has 1HP, Shedinja's IVs for HP cannot be calculated with the standard formula. It simply has the same HP IVs as the Nincada that shed it to begin with.
  • Shedinja is the only Pokémon that fully recovers from fainting when a Revive is used.
  • Due to its 1 HP, Shedinja's Defence and Sp. Def stats serve no purpose in battle.
  • Shedinja is the only Pokémon that will always knock itself out from full HP when confused, due to having a single hit point.

Origin

Shedinja is based on a shed cicada exoskeleton.

Etymology

Its name is a portmanteau of the words "shed" and "ninja".
