Pokémon Ruby
Ninjask moves around at such a high speed that it cannot be seen, even while its crying can be clearly heard. For that reason, this Pokémon was long believed to be invisible.
Pokémon Sapphire
If Ninjask is not trained properly, it will refuse to obey the Trainer and cry loudly continuously. Because of this quality, this Pokémon is said to be one that puts the Trainer's abilities to the test.
Pokémon Emerald
Because it darts about vigorously at high speed, it is very difficult to see. Hearing its distinctive cries for too long induces a headache.
Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen
This Pokémon is so quick, it is said to be able to avoid any attack. It loves to feed on tree sap.
