Nidorina (Japanese: ニドリーナ Nidorina) is a Poison-type Pokémon.

She evolves from Nidoran♀ starting at level 16 and evolves into Nidoqueen when exposed to a Moon Stone.

Biology

Physiology

Nidorina is comparatively larger than her pre-evolution, though she loses the forehead horn, whiskers, and incisor teeth. She remains quadruped. Nidorina is also turquoise in coloration instead of bluish lavender, with a pale underside. Nidorina's poison spikes are larger and probably more potent; she has also gained the ability to stand on her hind legs.

Gender differences

Nidorina is the female equivalent of Nidorino. This is shown even in her name, which ends in a as opposed to o in Nidorino. A is traditionally a feminine vowel in the English language, particularly at the ends of names.

Nidorina seems to be more docile and relaxed than her counterpart Nidorino.

Special abilities

Nidorina's abilities are stronger than Nidoran♀'s, but are otherwise the same.

Behavior

Nidorina is a gentle Pokémon like her pre-evolution, Nidoran♀. She is a caring mother, chewing food for her young. Although she would rather not attack at all, she prefers attacks like clawing and biting. She seems to display close family bonds with others of her own kind, and becomes nervous when separated. However, when angered, a Nidorina can become a formidable foe.

Habitat

Nidorina live in expansive hot savannas and plains. They share their home range with Nidorino. Both are common in Kanto, but rare in Sinnoh.

Trivia

  • Despite being a non-legendary, gendered species, and Pokédex entries attesting to her care and protection of offspring, Nidorina and her evolution Nidoqueen are unable to breed; only her pre-evolution, Nidoran♀, can breed.
  • Nidorina's Shiny coloration is similar to Nidorino's regular coloration and vice versa.

Origin

Nidorina appears to be based on a porcupine or a rabbit, mouse, or even a hamster.

Name origin

Nidorina may be a combination of needle and rhinoceros. Nido may also be based on cnidocyte, a type of venomous cell responsible for the stings delivered by stinging animals, most notably by jellyfish. Alternatively, it may be based on 二 ni (two) or 二度 nido (two times/two degrees), referring to the two distinct evolutionary lines using the name with similar names and traits. Rina likely alludes to its female gender; in some languages, such as Spanish and Italian, names and words ending in a are an indication to the female gender.

In other languages
