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.

Major appearances

Claydol's first appearance was in Claydol Big and Tall. A giant one was released from a giant stone Poké Ball and had to be stopped from getting to a village.

Robert used a Claydol along with Milotic in a two-on-two Contest Battle against Drew's Flygon and Masquerain in the finals of the Hoenn Grand Festival in Rhapsody in Drew.

In Ka Boom with a View!, Spenser used a Claydol against Ash as his final Pokémon. 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.

Three Claydol appeared in Arceus and the Jewel of Life under the ownership of Damos.

In Bucking the Treasure Trend!, a wild Claydol appeared 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

Ash battled a Claydol during the beginning sequence of Lucario and the Mystery of Mew.

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

A Claydol appeared in Volcanion and the Mechanical Marvel as one of the Pokémon residing at 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).
