Shiftry (Japanese: ダーテング Dirteng) is a dual-type Grass/Dark Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

It evolves from Nuzleaf when exposed to a Leaf Stone. It is the final form of Seedot.

Biology

Shiftry is a bipedal, portly Pokémon that appears to be made of wood. A shaggy white mane covers most of its face and trails down its back. Long pointed ears poke out the top of its mane, and it has a long, pointed nose and a large mouth with teeth that are usually bared. Its eyes are yellow with black sclerae. This Pokémon's feet resemble Japanese tengu-geta. Three broad leaves with brown spokes form each of its hands, and are used to create powerful winds close to 100 feet (30 meters) per second in speed. A female will have smaller leaves than the male.

Shiftry is a wicked and mysterious Pokémon that lives atop ancient trees in deep forests. It arrives with chilly, wintry winds and is feared by people as the guardian of the forest. It is able to read an opponent’s mind, and then take preemptive action. In the anime, it was shown to lead large groups of Seedot and Nuzleaf.

Trivia

Origin

Shiftry are based on tengu, who are known for their cruel tricks, ability to read minds, for protecting forests, and for wielding magical leaf fans called 羽団扇 hauchiwa, known to have the power to stir great winds. Tengu are also often depicted with long noses, flowing white hair, and wearing single-toothed wooden clogs called tengu-geta.

Name origin

Shiftry may be a combination of shifty (deceitful) and tree.

Dirteng may be a combination of dark or dirty and 天狗 tengu.
