Shedinja (ヌケニン) is the 44th Pokémon in the Hoenn Pokédex. It is a Bug/Ghost Type, and it is known as the Shed Pokémon.

Shedinja uses the Wonder Guard Ability. This Ability prevents all direct-attack damage from Physical and Special Attacks unless the move is Super Effective against it. Wonder Guard does not prevent damage from weather effects, entry hazards, damage from Poison or a Burn, or self-inflicted damage due to being Confused.

Nincada can evolve into a Ninjask starting at Level 20. At the time Nincada evolves into Ninajsk, if you have at least one Poké Ball in your inventory and have five Pokémon or less in your party, you'll also obtain Nincada's other form: Shedinja, with the same moves that your Ninjask has when it evolved, including any moves that Ninjask learns on the level that it evolved.

Shedinja is in the Mineral Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 3,840 Steps to hatch. It takes Shedinja 600,000 Experience Points to reach Level 100.

[edit] Physiology

Shedinja takes on the appearance of a bug Pokémon's shell shedding, with a halo-like ring above its head.

[edit] Gender Differences

Unlike Nincada and Ninjask, Shedinja is a Genderless Pokémon.

[edit] Game Information

[edit] Original Games

Shedinja can only be obtained by evolving a Nincada in all games that it appears in from Generation III onward.

[edit] Spin-off Games

Shedinja appears at Secret Storage 19, Endless Level 33, Forever Level 33 and Mr. Who's Den in Pokémon Trozei!.

Shedinja can only be obtained by evolving a Nincada in the first Mystery Dungeon game. In Explorers of Time, Explorers of Darkness and Explorers of Sky, Shedinja appears at the first 19 floors of Mt. Travail. Shedinja also appears at Sky Summit PTC8 1-4F, PTC9 1F-5F and PTS 1F-5F in Explorers of Sky. Shedinja is exclusive to Blazing Adventure Squad in Mystery Dungeon 3, appearing at Weird Mountain 21F-23F.

In all the Mystery Dungeon Games, only an empty slot in your party is needed to obtain Shedinja when it evolves.

Shedinja appears at Lila Forest in Pokémon Ranger. This is its only appearance in the Pokémon Ranger series to date, as Shedinja does not appear in either of the two sequels.

Shedinja can be found at Misty Edgewater Forest 2-2 in Pokémon Rumble Blast after completing the game.

[edit] Trading Card Game

Shedinja appears in five sets. It is listed as a Rare card in the EX Dragon, EX Deoxys, Legends Awakened, Supreme Victors and Dragons Exalted sets.

[edit] Anime/Manga Information

[edit] Anime

A Shedinja was being used by the power-hungry Colonel Hansen in the episodes The Princess And The Togepi! and the next episode A Togepi Mirage!, which saw Misty's Togepi evolve into a Togetic. Ash & Company were having a hard time dealing with what seemed to be an unbeatable defense until May's Torchic used a Fire-Type move to repulse it.

Other trainers have also used a Shedinja in a Pokémon Contest on a few occasions.

[edit] Movies

Shedinja has yet to appear in any of the movies as of writing.

[edit] Manga

Shedinja's Manga info is unknown at this time.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Shedinja is a unique Pokémon in the sense that it is a viable option in the Never-Utilized and Uber Tiers of Competitive Battling. While Wonder Guard is great for walling opposing Pokémon and has a good Attack, which is great for walling the many Psychic-Type Pokémon in the Uber Tier, the biggest problem is that Shedinja has only one HP. Any form of passive damage will defeat it, along with hitting it with a Dark, Ghost, Fire, Flying, or Rock Type move.
