Pokédex entries

Pokémon Ruby
Shedinja's hard body doesn't move - not even a twitch. In fact, its body appears to be merely a hollow shell. It is believed that this Pokémon will steal the spirit of anyone peering into its hollow body from its back.
Pokémon Sapphire
Shedinja is a peculiar Pokémon. It seems to appear unsought in a Poké Ball after a Nincada evolves. This bizarre Pokémon is entirely immobile - it doesn't even breathe.
Pokémon Emerald
A peculiar Pokémon that floats in air even though its wings remain completely still. The inside of its body is hollow and utterly dark.
Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen
A most peculiar Pokémon that somehow appears in a Poké Ball when a Nincada evolves.

Type effectiveness

Due to its ability, Shedinja is only affected by the types it is weak to - Dark, Fire, Flying, Ghost and Rock. Due to its HP, any hit from such a move will knock it out. This means that for Shedinja, the five types mentioned above are one-hit KO's, and the others don't affect it.

Shedinja can also be damaged by Struggle and any of the Shadow moves from Pokémon Colosseum and Pokémon XD.
