Trivia

  • All of the variations of this move involve cutting or slashing.
  • With a total of seven, Slash is learned by more Pokémon upon evolving than any other move.
  • Prior to Generation V, Shedinja is able to know Slash by leveling up if Nincada is allowed to evolve only at level 31, as Ninjask learns this move at this level.
