Herdier (ハーデリア) is the 13th Pokémon in the Unova Pokédex. It is a Normal Type, and it is known as the Loyal Dog Pokémon.

Herdier can use one of two Abilities; Intimidate, which reduces the Attack Statistic of its opponent or opponents by one stage upon entering battle; or Sand Rush, which doubles its Speed during a Sandstorm, also making it immune to damage caused by a Sandstorm. Herdier's Hidden Ability is the Scrappy Ability. This Ability allows its Normal and Fighting-Type moves to hit Ghost-Type Pokémon without requiring Odor Sleuth.
