Ninjask (Japanese: テッカニン Tekkanin) is a Bug/Flying-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III. Unlike Nincada, Ninjask has a more winged bug shape/form. Ninjask is good when with supportive moves like Substitute, Swords Dance, and Baton Pass, etc. When you want a more offensive Ninjask, you can use offensive moves like X-Scissor or Aerial Ace. This Pokémon is also exceedingly fast, only to be surpassed in Speed by Speed Form Deoxys.

Special abilities

Ninjask's ability Speed Boost allows it to raise its Speed each turn until it is maxed out. It's said to be so fast, it becomes invisible.

Etymology

Ninjask is probably named after "Ninja" and "Mask" because it's speed is like a ninja jumping over rooftops and its face resembles a mask.

Evolution

Ninjask is one of the two evolved forms of Nincada. Nincada evolves into Ninjask once level 20 is reached.
