Spinda (パッチール) is the 114th Pokémon in the Hoenn Pokédex. It is a Normal-Type, and it is known as the Soft Panda Pokémon.

Spinda can have one of two Abilities: Own Tempo, an Ability that makes it immune to becoming Confused from getting hit with a Confuse Ray or by using Thrash; or Tangled Feet, which increases its Evasion by one level should it become Confused. A third Ability is available to Spinda from the Dream World, the Contrary Ability. This Ability has an unusual effect because stat-altering moves used on a Pokémon with this Ability do the polar opposite of its intended effect; moves that would raise stats instead lower those stats whereas a move that would reduce stats raise those stats instead.

Spinda does not evolve and does not have a pre-evolved form.

Spinda is in the Egg Groups Field and Human-Like, and its Egg takes approximately 3,840 Steps to hatch. It takes Spinda 800,000 Experience Points to reach Level 100.

Spinda finds itself in the Never-Utilized Tier of Competitive Battling due to terrible Statistics overall. Its only chance at causing a Sweep are exclusive to what Spinda from the Dream World can use: Superpower and Contrary. As the boosts from Superpower increase, so does the difficulty in defeating it, which shouldn't be too much of a problem.
