Claydol (Japanese: ネンドール Nendoll) is a dual-type Ground/Psychic Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

It evolves from Baltoy starting at level 36.

Biology

Claydol firing energy beams

Claydol is a large, black Pokémon that resembles a mud statue with two stubby legs. It has a rounded, oblate-shaped head with a peg-like protrusion extending from the center of the top of its head. Along the circumference of its head are many round, pink eye-like structures alternating with yellow studs or beak-like protrusions between each "eye". An undulating, white rim runs along the upper edges of the eyes. Its torso features white ring markings, each with a downward extension and yellow dot in the middle. Two smaller orbs sit at its sides like limbs and a peg-like protrusion extends from each orb that is capable of firing various energy beams. These two orbs are not attached to its body but are usually kept floating close by Claydol's psychic powers. Claydol uses the same telekinetic abilities to move and float through the air. It lives in rough terrains.

Claydol has a body that is prone to melting when wet and uses its psychic powers to protect itself from rain. It was said to have started its life as an ancient clay figure created 20,000 years ago by ancient people, who apparently modeled it after something that descended from the sky.

Evolution

Claydol evolves from Baltoy.

Major appearances

Claydol debuted in Claydol Big and Tall. A giant one was released from a giant stone Poké Ball near Izabe Lake, and it had to be stopped from getting to a village.

In Rhapsody in Drew, Robert used a Claydol and Milotic during a two-on-two Contest Battle against Drew's Flygon and Masquerain in the finals of the Hoenn Grand Festival. Its impressive performance allowed Robert to win and become Top Coordinator.

In Ka Boom with a View!, Spenser's Claydol was his final Pokémon in a battle at the Battle Palace against Ash. With its Hyper Beam, Psybeam, Rapid Spin, and Teleport, it quickly defeated Swellow, and it proved to be a challenge for Sceptile. It was later defeated by Sceptile's newly learned Solar Beam. It reappeared in flashbacks in King and Queen for a Day and A Pyramiding Rage!.

In the original timeline of Arceus and the Jewel of Life, a hypnotized Damos commanded three Claydol to attack Arceus with Shock Wave. When Ash and his friends traveled to the past to prevent this, Marcus, the one responsible for hypnotizing Damos, managed to use the Claydol again to attack Arceus.

In Bucking the Treasure Trend!, a Claydol guarded treasure at Dandelion Island. It proved to be a strong Pokémon against Dawn's Piplup and Ash's Torterra. It was eventually caught by Buck.

Minor appearances

In the opening sequence of Lucario and the Mystery of Mew, Ash battled a Claydol.

A Claydol appeared in the opening sequence of Zoroark: Master of Illusions.

In Volcanion and the Mechanical Marvel a Claydol was living at the Nebel Plateau.

Trivia

Origin

Claydol's design is similar to the 遮光器土偶 Shakōki-dogū—a "spaceman" clay figurine from the Jōmon period of Japanese history.

Name origin

Claydol may be a combination of clay and idol or doll. It may also involve dreidel, paralleling with its pre-evolution Baltoy's similarity to tops.

Nendoll may be a combination of 念動 nendō (telekinesis), 粘土 nendo (clay), and doll.
