Trivia

Origin

Nidorina appears to be based on a rabbit or mouse.

Name origin

Nidorina's name may be based on the word needle. Alternatively, it may be based on 二 ni, two, or 二度 nido, two times/two degrees, referring to there being two distinct evolutionary lines using the name with similar names and traits. The rina in its name most likely alludes to its female gender- in many languages, such as Spanish, names and words ending in a are said to be feminine.

In other languages

  • German: Nidorina
  • French: Nidorina
  • Korean: 니드리나 Nideurina
  • Chinese (Taiwan): 尼多娜 Ní Duo Núo
  • Chinese (Hong Kong): 尼美羅 Ní Mìi Lúo
