Shedinja is a Bug/Ghost-type. It can be aquired while evolving a Nincada into Ninjask on level 20 if there is a Poké Ball in bag and a free space in the party.

Pokédex Entry

Pokédex entry
A peculiar Pokémon that floats in air even though its wings remain completely still. The inside of its body is hollow and utterly dark.

Biology

Physiology

(From Bulbapedia)Shedinja is a Pokémon based on a cicada's shed exoskeleton. Most of its body is light brown, but the abdomen is gray. It has four protrusions on its underside instead of legs; the top pair is brown, while the lower is gray. There are round protrusions on the side of its head with narrow slits for eyes. Two lines encircle its abdomen and a white halo floats above its head. On its back is a pair of tattered wings divided into three wingtips. A hole between its wings reveals that its body completely hollow and dark, as it possesses no internal organs. It is said that looking into this empty space will steal one's spirit. Its shell is very hard, which gives it strong defense but renders it incapable of movement. It does not breathe and floats without moving its wings. It lives in forests.

Trivia

Design origin

(From Bulbapedia)It is based on the shed husk that cicadas leave behind when they finish their metamorphosis into adults. Concerning its species' ninja theme, it also appears to be a reference to the fabled ninjutsu technique 空蝉 utsusemi, where a ninja uses a dummy or replica of itself to evade and escape from threats, and where its namesake also alludes to the cast off shed husk of a cicada. It may also be based on a guardian angel, due to the halo-like object floating above its head. Its Ability Wonder Guard probably alludes to this.

Name origin

(From Bulbapedia)Shedinja is a combination of shed (to cast off skin or exoskeleton) and ninja.
