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

Appearance

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.
