Does the HP of Shedinja ever raise above one with leveling? - unsigned comment from [email protected] (talkcontribs)

Nope. It stays 1 forever. --Zeta 19:07, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

The article says the only way to know Shedinja's HP IV is finding out its "brother" Ninjask IV, but couldn't we figure it out by knowing Hidden Power type and power? Gabriel Rocha (Diby esp) 23:49, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

I think you are confusing HP and HP. — THE TROM — 23:52, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
But isn't HP determined by IVs such as HP's? The Dark Fiddler - You enter a poorly lit room... 23:57, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
Hidden Power's type and power depend on every stat IV. If you know the Attack, Defense, Special Attack, Special Defense and Speed IV, then knowing our Shedinja's Hidden Power type and power would take us to an obvious conclusion of its HP IV, wouldn't it? Gabriel Rocha (Diby esp) 00:43, 3 June 2009 (UTC)
No, it wouldn't. The formula for calculating the strength and type of Hidden Power relies only on the IVs modulo 2 and modulo 4. For example, if you could change a Shedinja's HP IV from 1 to 29, the type and power of Hidden Power would not change. This is because 1 and 29 are congruent modulo 2 and modulo 4. For more information, see the "Number of possible Hidden Powers" section of the Hidden Power calculation article. Ali 247 17:53, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

Best type?

Due to Shedinja's ability, Wonder Guard, is there any combined set of types that would leave it immune to damage (not counting status-affecting moves and weather)? Casmith 789 15:18, 17 August 2007 (UTC)

Dark/Ghost and Ghost/Dark, the types of Spiritomb and Sableye, combine to have no weakness (except when Foresight, Odor Sleuth, and/or Miracle Eye are used). Neither of them have Wonder Guard, though. TTEchidna 03:09, 18 August 2007 (UTC)
Thanks, after finally catching a Spiritomb I figured this out for myself! Casmith 789 08:46, 8 September 2007 (UTC)

maybe it would be more usable with the Focus Sash?- unsigned comment from Logicalfighter666 (talkcontribs) there would be no such thing as a super effective attack.

It's completely impossible to be immune from damage, no matter what one does. Even a (hacked, let's say) Dark/Ghost-type with Wonder Guard would be hurt by weather attacks. Since you can't combine Air Lock and Wonder Guard, it is impossible to not take any damage. LordArceus 14:40, 19 December 2008 (UTC)
Double Battle. But you are right that it is impossible to be immune from damage: status damage. The Dark Fiddler - Nos hablamos? 14:43, 19 December 2008 (UTC)

Poke ball

Ive tried evolving a nincada twice in my diamond game and it only gave me a shedinja the second time after id bought a poke ball, in both instances i had a spare space in my party. Perhaps you only need a poke ball in diamond/pearl?- unsigned comment from Itxi (talkcontribs)

I've always done it with an extra Pokéball. --DarkfireTaimatsu 08:59, 9 September 2007 (UTC)
I was wondering because in the trivia section it states that one isnt needed. --Itxi 09:02, 9 September 2007 (UTC)
Then where does the Pokéball in my inventory go once I've obtained Shedinja, hmm? --DarkfireTaimatsu 09:09, 9 September 2007 (UTC)
Presicely, I just thought it might be better to start a discussion on it first than just deleting the text. --Itxi 09:11, 9 September 2007 (UTC)
You're wrong. I just tested it out. I got a Nincada in my party with an extra slot. I didn't have any Poké balls. When it evolved, I still got a Shedinja. If a Poké ball dissapears when you get a Shedinja then you're being ripped off. --ケンジガール 09:20, 9 September 2007 (UTC)
What game are you playing? I said that i tried it with a pokeball and without and it only works with. This is on Diamond --Itxi 09:28, 9 September 2007 (UTC)
This is Emerald. I don't know. Maybe the mechanics are different in in Diamond. But you definetly don't need a Poké Ball in Emerald.
Hopefully that edit covers it all :) --Itxi 09:36, 9 September 2007 (UTC)
We may want to clarify that the Poké Ball needed must be an actual Poké Ball and not any other type of Ball, eg. Great Ball, Net Ball, or Dusk Ball. ESeamus 07:41, 14 March 2008 (UTC)
I was bold and edited it. Lady BlahDeBlah 11:29, 27 December 2008 (UTC)
I think that maybe Eseamus was right, because a friend of mine tried it with a great ball, and it didn't work. Dolphins are awesome (and Vulpix are too) 19:16, 5 October 2009 (UTC)

Recent Edit

Is the whole thing about the hole in the back being visible needed? I mean, of course it's going to be visible, your looking at it from a behind perspective, AND it is a video game, they don't steal your soul. --Midnight Celtic 18:39, 1 December 2007 (UTC)

Well, how it appears in the anime would be way more realistic. You're right, if you die in a bloody video for example, or get hurt, you're perfectly fine in real life. So I think that trivia is pretty pointless, it's not like it's a goof. TheBlazikenMaster 11:20, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
I think it's wrong because you have to look insde the hole, not look at it from afar. the back sprite shows it from afar, whereas if you wanted your soul to be stolen, you would have to put your eye up close to Shedinja... XD. I'll remove it. TESHIGIGAS 11:34, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
I removed it weeks ago... somebody must have added it again...Crystal Lucario 11:50, 3 April 2008 (UTC)


If you breed a Shedinja with a Ditto, will you get a Nincada or another Shedinja? It doesn't say anywhere on the page. Since Shedinja is just Nincada's old exoskeleton brought to life, it would be weird if it could produce a whole new Nincada on its own. - Buddy Christ 22:44, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

Last time I checked Shedinja doesn't have a gender, and I somehow doubt that a Ditto can breed the genderless as it has gender last time I remember. You can prove me wrong, it has been a long time since I last checked. TheBlazikenMaster 22:32, 22 April 2008 (UTC)
Ditto can breed with the genderless, otherwise we'd have no Phione, no baby Porygon, and a heck of a lot of problems. It's the genderless that can't interbreed. Ditto makes it all possible (unless you're in the No eggs Group). It results in a Nincada, same as if you bred the Ninjask. The only odd thing is... Shedinja is in the Mineral Group... Nincada and Ninjask are in the Bug... TTEchidna 02:47, 23 April 2008 (UTC)
Ditto is genderless(random comment).Blastoise RULZ 21:07, 15 September 2008 (UTC)

Scrappy or Foresight will onlywork with Mold Breaker

As they aren't super-effective even after Foresight (and Fighting wouid even be "resisted"). --Gorebyss 08:21, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

Focus Sash

what would happen when focus sash is equipped to shedy? Atomix26 19:08, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

It can withstand one hit that would otherwise faint it. — Laoris (Blah) 19:17, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
Yes, since Focus Sash is only one use. But if you equip Focus Band, then it's possible it could survive for a lot longer. Of course, it's equally possible it'll die on the first hit.--Celebi96 00:40, 30 June 2009 (UTC)


When I use the name rater, despite being genderless, Shedinja will have a gender when we write a new nickname. Wouldn't that be a nice information for trivia? Gabriel Rocha (Diby esp) 02:19, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

I have confirmation of this... If someone can determine where the gender comes from this would be great. At the moment I'm picking the same gender as your Nijask. — THE TROM — 03:24, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

Flail and Reversal

I know it's impossible for a Shedinja to have either of these moves without hacking, but supposed one was hacked to have either of these moves... would it have 20 Power because it's at max HP, or would it have 200 power because it only has 1 HP? --Derian 16:36, 2 November 2009 (UTC)

That's probably the reason why it's impossible. Valorum27 00:04, 6 May 2010 (UTC)

Edit request

→Pokedex entries

Small edit requests. First, can you make a ==Pokedex entries== thing over the anime Pokedex entries, and second, can you put a comma in between body and giving? Please and thank you. Littlmiget123 17:27, 13 November 2009 (UTC)

Breeding generation 4

I've managed to teach my nincada/ shedinja toxic by breeding from a dustox in emerald. if someone wants to verify this works of generation 4 games, too and add it to the page it'd be nice.

Nincada can learn Toxic by TM. TM moves known by the father are passed down to the egg if the egg's species is capable of learning the TM, regardless of whether the father learned it by TM or not. Werdnae (talk) 20:16, 15 April 2010 (UTC)


What about with an HP Up?--Dratini Egg 20:18, 23 April 2010 (UTC)

It's HP is always 1, regardless of IV and EVs. HP Ups just add EVs, which are completely ignored for Shedinja's HP. Werdnae (talk) 02:43, 24 April 2010 (UTC)


If this is already in the article, i must not have noticed, but...

-Will a shiny Nincada always produce a shiny Shedinja when it evolves? -If the Nincada is not shiny, is there a chance the Shedinja will be anyway?
