Nidoran♀ (Japanese: ニドラン♀ Nidoran♀) is a Poison-type Pokémon.

She evolves into Nidorina starting at level 16, who evolves into Nidoqueen when exposed to a Moon Stone.

Biology

Physiology

Nidoran♀ is a small, quadruped, porcupine or rodent-based Pokémon with large ears, whiskers and front teeth. They are covered with small spines primarily on their back, which can release potent poisons if Nidoran♀ is threatened.

Gender differences

Nidoran♀ is the female of the species, and is noted to be the first Pokémon to denote gender differences. In the later generations, however, Pokémon with genders are marked with a ♀ or ♂ symbol, rather than being actual different Pokémon.

Nidoran♀ have a smaller forehead horn than their male counterparts, Nidoran♂. They also have lesser spines, and are of a different color.

Special abilities

Nidoran♀ usually attacks by clawing and biting her foes. She also has the aforementioned Ability to secrete poison from her small spikes. Nidoran♀ can also wield a few Ice and Electric attacks.

Behavior

Nidoran♀ are known to be rather docile and reserved. However, angering one can result in being poisoned by one of her toxic spines. These are thought to have developed to counteract her small size.

All members of the Nidoran family can sometimes put a stronger effort in battle when faced with a foe of the same gender.

Habitat

Grassland

Grassland Pokémon

Nidoran♀ live in expansive savannas and plains, or any open space. They share their range with Nidoran♂ and both species are most common in Kanto and Johto.
