Shiftry (Japanese: ダーテング Daatengu) is a Grass/Dark-type Pokémon that was introduced in Generation III. It is Ludicolo's counterpart.

Biology

Physiology

Shiftry is a bipedal Pokémon that has a wicked, creepy appearance. Most of its body is brown, save for the leafy fans it holds, its eyes and the inside of its ears, and its flowing white mane. Much of Shiftry's body also appears to be strangely shaped- its feet resemble Japanese sandals, its ears and nose are long and pointy, and its shoulders are completely round. The Pokémon's most distinctive feature, its fans, are so powerful that they are capable of creating chilly winter winds and windstorms that completely blow away houses.

Gender differences

Male Shiftry have larger leaf fans than the females.

Behavior

Since Shiftry are usually reclusive and live quiet lives in deep forests, not much is known about their behavior. However, they are rumored to be the guardians of the forests they live in.

They are often shown as leading groups of its pre evolutions.

Natural abilities

Shiftry have access to chlorophyll which boosts its speed in sunlight(or just harsh sunlight starting from Ultra Sun and Moon, often at the cost of increased Fire damage) or Early Bird(which allows them to wake up from sleep faster than most Pokémon). It’s hidden Pickpocket ability allows it to steal an item.

By flapping their leafy fans, Shiftry have the ability to create chilly winter winds and terrible gusts of 100 ft/second wind that completely blows away houses. They also have the ability to read minds and attack before their foes do.

Habitat

Shiftry live deep in forests, sometimes at the tops of towering trees that are thousands of years old. This is backed up by the Pokédex in Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen and their Friend Area preference.

Evolution

Shiftry is the final evolution of Seedot. Nuzleaf, Seedot's evolution, evolves into Shiftry by using a Leaf Stone.

Appearances

Anime

Manga

  • Shiftry attacked Norman in one of the Pokémon adventures chapters and his Slaking made quick work of it. Sapphire was also attacked by Shiftry and defeated it using Chic (Blaziken).
  • Shiftry was rented by the battle tower as well.

Trivia

  • Despite the fact that Shiftry's Pokédex entries consistently claim that it can read foe's minds, it cannot learn the move Mind Reader, even in the latest Pokémon games.
  • All of Shiftry’s moves after evolving are learnt from the move relearner.
  • Shiftry‘s type combination (which Nuzleaf And Zarude also have) has the max weakness a Pokémon can have, with seven. These types are Fighting, Poison, Flying, Fairy, Bug, Fire, and Ice.
  • Shiftry and Ludicolo have many similarities:
    • Both share the Grass-type.
    • Both have a 50% chance to be male or female.
    • Both of them come from a 3-stage evolution line.
    • Both of their middle evolutions evolve with stones (Lombre with a Water Stone and Nuzleaf with a Leaf Stone).
    • Both have the same catch rate (45).
    • Both are in the Grass breeding group.
    • The first part of their evolutions evolve at Level 14.
    • Both are based off of Japanese mythological creatures (Shiftry is a tengu while Ludicolo is a kappa).
    • Both are exclusive to certain games (Shiftry is exclusive to Ruby, Omega Ruby and Sword and Ludicolo is exclusive to Sapphire, Alpha Sapphire and Shield).

Origin

  • Shiftry is based on a tengu, a mythological Japanese creature. Fittingly, the region that Shiftry was first available in is based off of an area of Japan.

Etymology

Shiftry is derived from shifty and tree. It may also incorporate tricky.

Dātengu is a portmanteau of "dark" or "dirty" (referencing its fighting style) and "tengu."
