Nidoran♀ ( Japanese: ニドラン♀ Nidoran♀) is a Poison-type Pokémon.
evolves into Nidorina starting at level 16, who evolves into Nidoqueen when exposed to a Moon Stone.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Though small, it must be treated with caution because of its powerfully toxic barbs. The female has smaller horns.
The poison hidden in its small horn is extremely potent. Even a tiny scratch can have fatal results.
This Pokémon was unavailable prior to Generation I.
