Nidorino (Japanese: ニドリーノ Nidoriino) is a Poison-type Pokémon and the evolved form of Nidoran♂. It is the male counterpart of a Nidorina.


Nidorino is a rabbit-like Pokémon, like its previous evolution, though it acquires a more rugged look. Sharp teeth protrude from its upper jaw and its spikes have grown larger. It is a red-purple color with slightly darker spots. It has very large ears.

Special abilities

The entire Nido family are known for their venomous spines. Nidorino's are no exception. They are more potent than his previous evolution.


Nidorino evolves into Nidoking, by use of a Moon Stone. Nidorino is the evolved form of Nidoran♂ as of level 17.
