Spinda (Japanese: パッチール Patcheel) is a Normal-type Pokémon.

While it is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon, the placement of its spots is unique to each individual Spinda. Its spots have over four billion possible combinations and are determined by its personality value.

Biology

Physiology

Spinda resembles a small, upright panda with rabbit-like features. Its head is almost as large as its body, and it is almost always seen sporting a smile. Its eyes are made up of two black spirals, which point in the opposite direction to each other, with a similar pattern on its ears. Spinda has four spots, which can appear anywhere on its face and ears, with a fifth on the back of its head. It has small body with short stumpy arms and legs, and its coat is primarily cream in coloration. Its arms are red and it has a red stripe bordering along the bottom of its belly, as well as two small spots on the soles of its feet.

Gender differences

Although there is no specific difference among males and females, almost all Spinda look different anyway.

Special abilities

A handful of Spinda's attacks involve causing confusion, including the rarely seen Teeter Dance. Spinda can also use a handful of other Psychic attacks, such as the rarely seen Psycho Cut and Role Play. It is also capable of physical combat, such as using the elemental punches and Flail.

Behavior

Spinda have the odd habit of staggering around when they walk. This makes them appear dizzy, but they are not. The teetering walk helps to confuse enemies and potential predators, messing up their aim.

Habitat

They can usually be found in or near mountain areas such as Route 113 and Route 227.

Ruby All the Spinda that exist in the world are said to have utterly unique spot patterns. The shaky, tottering steps of this Pokémon give it the appearance of dancing.
Sapphire No two Spinda are said to have identical spot patterns on their hides. This Pokémon moves in a curious manner as if it is stumbling in dizziness. Its lurching movements can cause the opponent to become confused.
Emerald It is distinguished by a pattern of spots that is always different. Its unsteady, tottering walk has the effect of fouling its foe's aim.
FireRed No two Spinda are said to have identical patterns. It confuses foes with its stumbling motions.

Trivia

  • A Spinda's spot pattern is determined by its personality value, meaning that there can be exactly 4,294,967,296 (232, 416 or 2564) different variations of Spinda, or double that number if Shiny Spinda are considered different variations.
    • Any of these spot patterns could also be Shiny—this raises the total to a massive 8,589,934,592 possibilities for its appearance. However, only 524,288 of these Shiny patterns are available on each individual game—Shininess is partially determined by the original Trainer's ID and SID, meaning that every game has a different set of patterns that can be Shiny. This Shininess is retained when traded, however, like any Pokémon.
  • In Pokémon Battle Revolution, Toxic is depicted as two purple orbs spinning around each other towards the target. However, when Spinda uses Toxic, the orbs travel erratically. The same animation is used for Carnivine.
  • Spinda is remarkably light for its size; it is half a meter taller than Skitty, yet less than half the weight.

Origin

Spinda's body structure is based on the panda with elongated rabbit ears. The different spot patterns as well as its general color scheme may be a reference to red pandas, which also have their own unique markings.

Name origin

Spinda is a combination of spin (referring to its twirly eyes and ears) and panda.

Patcheel is a combination of patch or patchwork—referring to its appearance—and 拈くる hinekuru (to twirl or spin).
