Original Japanese name: Nidoriina
Species: Poison Pin
Evolution: Evolves from Nidoran (female); evolves into Nidoqueen
Nidorina has a calm, caring nature and gentle temperament. Because its horn develops slower than Nidorino's, it prefers not to fight. When resting deep in its burrow, its thorns always retract. This is proof that it is relaxed. When Nidorina are with their friends or family, they keep their barbs tucked away to prevent causing injury to each other. This pokemon appears to become nervous if separated from others. When feeding its young, it first chews and tenderizes the food, then spits it out for the offspring. If it is threatened or senses danger, it raises the barbs that are all over its body. It is usually docile, but if it becomes enraged, it will attack wildly with bites and scratches. Since its horn grows slowly, it prefers physical attacks such as clawing and biting. It can also emit ultrasonic cries that have the power to befuddle foes.
