Nidoqueen (Japaneseニドクイン Nidoqueen) is a dual-type Poison/Ground Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

She evolves from Nidorina when exposed to a Moon Stone. She is the final form of Nidoran♀.

She is related to the Nidoran♂ line, but unlike Nidoran♀, Nidoqueen cannot breed.

Biology

Nidoqueen is a large, bipedal blue Pokémon with distinct reptilian features. Its body is encased with extremely hard scales that serve as excellent protection from any attack and stand up when Nidoqueen is excited or provoked. It has a blunt snout, narrow brown eyes, and large ears with brown insides. There is a small horn on its forehead, and single spine on each ear, and there is a line of toxic spikes running down the length of its back. Each hand has three short claws and each foot was two claws. Its lower jaw, the front of its abdomen, and two plates on its chest are cream-colored. It has a thick, powerful tail.

Nidoqueen can be quite fierce and is very protective over its young. This Pokémon is at its strongest when it is defending its young, and will try to seal the entrance to its burrow to protect them. When in contact with foes, it can poison them with the spikes from its back or cause small tremors by slamming the ground. It is also adept at sending foes flying with harsh tackles and it uses its hefty bulk to execute powerful moves. Nidoqueen lives in hot savannas and plains.

Trivia

 
Baby Nidoqueen and Rhyhorn in the anime
  • Despite its pre-evolution Nidoran♀ and Nidoqueen's male counterpart Nidoking being able to breed, Nidoqueen and its pre-evolution Nidorina are unable to breed.
    • This also makes Nidorina and Nidoqueen the only two Pokémon that cannot breed even though their pre-evolution can breed.
    • Despite being in the Undiscovered Group, Nidoqueen was shown to be capable of breeding in the anime special Mewtwo Returns, when a cloned Nidoqueen and a cloned Rhyhorn produced Eggs containing both baby Rhyhorn and baby Nidoqueen (not baby Nidoran♀).
  • Nidoqueen is the only Nidoran evolutionary family member whose Shiny color is not the same as its opposite-gender counterpart's normal color.
  • Nidoqueen and its male counterpart Nidoking share their category name with Rhydon and Rhyperior. They are all known as the Drill Pokémon. All four are also Ground types.
  • Aside from Nidoking, no other Pokémon has the same type combination as Nidoqueen.
  • In the Japanese games Pokémon Red and Green, Nidoqueen weighs 6.0 kg instead of 60.0 kg (as it does in all other games). This has no mechanical significance, as no game mechanics use weight in the handheld Generation I games.

Origin

Nidoqueen shares traits of rhinoceroses, gorillas, rabbits and porcupines. The coverings on its chest and its lower abdomen collectively resemble a two-piece bikini.

Name origin

Nidoqueen may be a combination of needle and queen (reflective of its gender and being the final evolution). Nido may also be based on cnidocyte, a type of venomous cell responsible for the stings delivered by stinging animals, most notably by jellyfish. Alternatively, it may be based on 二 ni (two) or 二度 nido (two times/two degrees), referring to there being two distinct evolutionary lines using the name with similar names and traits.
