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 is a large, black Pokémon that resembles a mud statue with two stubby legs. It has a wide, spherical head with a rounded protrusion on top. Around its head are many large, pink eyes with yellow, beak-like protrusions between each. A wavy, white rim runs along the upper edges of the eyes. Its torso has white ring markings, each with a downward extension and yellow dot in the middle. It has spherical arms with a rounded protrusion that are capable of firing beams. These arms 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.

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

In the main series

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.

A Claydol appeared in Rhapsody in Drew, under the ownership of Robert. He used it along with 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.

A Claydol appeared in Ka Boom with a View!, under the ownership of Spenser. He used it as 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!.

Three Claydol appeared in Arceus and the Jewel of Life, under the ownership of Damos. In the original timeline set up by the movie, they were used by Damos, who was under Hypnosis, 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.

A wild Claydol appeared in Bucking the Treasure Trend!, where it was guarding the treasure in Dandelion Island. It proved to be a strong Pokémon, standing up to Dawn's Piplup and Ash's Torterra. It was eventually caught by Buck.

Minor appearances

A Claydol appeared in the opening sequence of Lucario and the Mystery of Mew, where Ash battled it.

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

A Claydol appeared in Volcanion and the Mechanical Marvel as a resident of 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 is a combination of clay and idol or doll. It may also involve dreidel due to Claydol's pronunciation and its pre-evolution Baltoy's similarity to tops.

Nendoll may be a combination of 念 nen (thought), 粘土 nendo (clay), and doll. Nen is found in various compounds having to do with ESP-related phenomena, such as 念写 nensha (spirit photography) and 念動 nendō (telekinesis).
