Nidorina (pronunciation: need-uh-REE-nuh) is a Poison-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I that is the female counterpart to Nidorino.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Nidorina is a rodent-like Pokémon with big ears, reminiscent of a bunny. It has blue skin, with darker spots around the body. Its male counterpart is Nidorino. It has horns on its back.

Special abilities[edit | edit source]

Nidorina has the abilities Poison Point and Rivalry along with the hidden ability Hustle. Poison Point has a 30% chance of poisoning the opponent's Pokémon when it hits Nidorina with a Physical move while Rivalry deals more damage to the opponent when it is an opposite gender. Hustle lowers Nidorina's accuracy, but raises attack.

Evolution[edit | edit source]

Nidorina is the evolved form of a Nidoran♀ as of level 16. Nidorina evolves into Nidoqueen by use of a Moon Stone.

In the anime[edit | edit source]

Emily had a Nidoran♀ that evolved into a Nidorina in IL100: Wherefore Art Thou, Pokémon?. A ton of Nidorina were found in IL033: The Flame Pokémon-athon!. Whitney used a Nidorina to battle Ash's Cyndaquil. Two different Nidorinas made an appearance in AG121: Hi Ho Silver Wind! and the opening of MS013: Pokémon - Zoroark: Master of Illusions respectively.
