#31: Nidoqueen - Poison Ground Type

[PokeDex Entry]



The Drill Pokémon

  • Alpha-sapphire: Nidoqueen’s body is encased in extremely hard scales. It is adept at sending foes flying with harsh tackles. This Pokémon is at its strongest when it is defending its young.

    Y: The body is covered by stiff, needlelike scales. If it becomes excited, the needles bristle outwards.

    X: It uses its scaly, rugged body to seal the entrance of its nest and protect its young from predators.

    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.
