Trivia

  • Ninjask has the second highest Speed stat of all Pokémon, which is 160. This level of attribute is only beaten by Deoxys in its Speed Forme, at 180. Hence, Ninjask is the fastest non-legendary Pokemon. But Ninjask can beat Deoxys in one turn in battle thanks to Speed Boost.
  • Raising its Speed, Evasiveness, and Attack then lowering its opponent's accuracy makes Ninjask an unstoppable force unless its Speed Boost ability is replaced with Simple or Mummy during battle.

Etymology

Ninjask is named after "Ninja" and "Mask".
