Nidorino debuted in the first round of the Red, Green & Blue chapter, A Glimpse of the Glow, where Red caught it to show to the Pallet Town children how to catch a Pokémon.

Trivia

Origin

Nidorino appears to be based on a porcupine, rabbit, mouse, or even a hamster, as seen by their aggressive and independent nature.

Name origin

Nidorino 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. Rino likely alludes to its male gender; in some languages, such as Spanish, names and words ending in o are an indication to the male gender.

In other languages

Language Title Meaning
Japan Flag.png Japanese ニドリーノ Nidorino Possibly from "needle", plus masculine ending -o
France Flag.png French Nidorino Same as English/Japanese name
Spain Flag.png Spanish Nidorino Same as English/Japanese name
Germany Flag.png German Nidorino Same as English/Japanese name
Italy Flag.png Italian Nidorino Same as English/Japanese name
South Korea Flag.png Korean 니드리노 Nideurino Transliteration of Japanese name
