Biology

Physiology

Nidoran♂ is a small, rabbit-based Pokémon with large ears, whiskers and front teeth. They are covered with spines, primarily on their back, which can release potent poisons if Nidoran♂ is threatened. Nidoran♂ have a larger forehead horn than their female counterparts, Nidoran♀. It has darker spots all over its body.

Its large horns can secrete a powerful venom, unlike its female counterpart, the size of the horns is indicative of the strength of the venom. It also has unique muscles around its ears, which permit them to be moved in any direction.

Evolution

Nidoran♂ evolves into a Nidorino at level 16. Nidorino evolves into Nidoking, by use of a Moon Stone.

Appearances

Anime

Nidoran Male

Nidoran♂ with its counterpart, Nidoran♀, were featured in the episode Wherefore Art Thou, Pokémon? . A young boy named Ralph owned a Nidoran♂ which evolved into a Nidorino after kissing his friend Emily's Nidoran♀.

Trivia

Origins

Nidoran♂'s name may be based on the word needle. It may also be based from the word cnidarian which are stinging animals. Alternatively, it may be based on 二 ni, two, or 二度 nido, two times/two degrees, referring to there being two distinct evolutionary lines using the name with similar names and traits. The ♂ in its name is an indication of its male gender.
