Nidoran♂ (Japanese: ニドラン♂ Nidoran♂) is a Template:Type-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I and is the male counterpart to Nidoran♀.

Biology

Physiology

Nidoran♂ is a small, rabbit-based Pokémon with large ears, whiskers and front teeth. They are covered with spines, primarily on their back, which can release potent poisons if Nidoran♂ is threatened. Nidoran♂ have a larger forehead horn than their female counterparts, Nidoran♀. He has darker spots all over his body.

Natural abilities

His large horns can secrete a powerful venom, unlike his female counterpart, the size of the horns is indicative of the strength of the venom. He also has unique muscles around its ears, which permit them to be moved in any direction.

Evolution

Nidoran♂ evolves into a Nidorino at level 16. Nidorino evolves into Nidoking, by use of a Moon Stone.

Trivia

  • Despite genders not existing in Generation I, Nidoran♂ and Nidoran♀ were still separate Pokémon.
  • Nidoran♂'s shiny form appears to be the coloration of Nidoran♀.
  • Nidoran♂ is one of the ten Pokémon with a non-alphabetical character in it along with Nidoran♀, Farfetch'd, Mr. Mime, Ho-Oh, Porygon2, Mime Jr., Porygon-Z, Flabébé, and Sirfetch'd.
  • In official art, Nidoran♂ is colored purple, yet in the anime he is colored pink.

Origin

Nidoran♂ is mostly based on small mammalian animals, mainly mice, rabbits, or porcupines. It may also be based on some venomous mammals, mainly the insectivore types. The two Nidorans altogether seem to be based on the concept of sexual dimorphism in which two genders of the same animal species have two very different appearances.

Etymology

Nidoran♂ may come from cnidocyte (a type of cell responsible for the venom in stinging animals) and ran (orchid in Japanese, orchids can be either blue or purple, just like the colors of the two Nidorans). It may also derive from needle. ♂ signifies it being an only-male species.
