Shedinja (Japanese: ヌケニン Nukenin) is a Bug/Ghost-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III. It is born from the remains of Nincada when it evolves into Ninjask.

Biology

Behavior

Shedinja is an evolutionary byproduct of Nincada's evolution; the discarded husk. This Pokémon is said to have originated from a discarded bug shell, which then came to life. Peering into the crack on its back is said to steal one's spirit.

Natural abilities

No matter how much a Shedinja is trained, its HP always stays at one as its special ability, Wonder Guard which allows it to take no damage, except from super effective moves.
