Shedinja (Japanese: ヌケニン Nukenin) is a Bug/Ghost-type Pokémon, and is the result of Ninjask's evolution from its pre-evolution Nincada.

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 came to life. Peering into the crack on its back is said to steal one's spirit.

One may get a Shedinja in the games where he or she has to evolve the Nincada into a Ninjask and have an extra slot open in their party. No matter how much a Shedinja is trained, its HP always stays at one as its special ability, Wonder Guard, allows it to take no damage, except from super effective moves.
