#34: Nidoking - Poison Ground Type

[PokeDex Entry]



The Drill Pokémon

  • Alpha-sapphire: Nidoking’s thick tail packs enormously destructive power. With one swing, it can topple a metal transmission tower. Once this Pokémon goes on a rampage, there is no stopping it.

    Y: One swing of its mighty tail can snap a telephone pole as if it were a matchstick.

    X: It is recognized by its rock-hard hide and its extended horn. Be careful with the horn, as it contains venom.

    Prof. Lotus' Notes: The name is a portmanteau of the Japanese borrowed word for Needle - ニドル (Nedoru), cnidocyte (thing in all poisonous animals) and rhino.
