Nidorina is a Poison-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I that is the female counterpart to Nidorino.


Nidorina is a rodent-like Pokémon with big ears, reminiscent of a rabbit. It has blue skin, with darker spots around the body. Its male counterpart is Nidorino. It has horns on its back.

Special abilities

Nidorina has the abilities Poison Point and Rivalry along with the hidden ability Hustle. Poison Point has a 30% chance of poisoning the opponent's Pokémon when it hits Nidorina with a Physical move while Rivalry deals more damage to the opponent when it is an opposite gender. Hustle lowers Nidorina's accuracy, but raises attack.

In the anime

Whitney Nidorina Tackle

Emily had a Nidoran♀ that evolved into a Nidorina in Wherefore Art Thou, Pokémon?. A ton of Nidorina were found in IL033: The Flame Pokémon-athon!. Whitney used a Nidorina to battle Ash's Cyndaquil. Two different Nidorinas made an appearance in AG121: Hi Ho Silver Wind! and the opening of MS013: Pokémon - Zoroark: Master of Illusions respectively.


Nidorina is the evolved form of a Nidoran♀ as of level 17. Nidorina evolves into Nidoqueen by use of a Moon Stone.
