Biology

Nidoking is a large, bipedal, purple Pokémon with distinct reptilian features. It has narrow eyes, large, spiny ears, fur-like tufts on its cheeks, and a short snout filled with pointed teeth. There is a long, venomous horn on its forehead and a ridge of spines down its back. Gray plates cover its chest and belly, and there is a gray, rounded spine on each elbow. Each hand has three claws, while each foot has only a single hoof-like nail. It has a long, powerful tail. Nidoking is a male-only species.

It is said that Nidoking's tail is capable of toppling a metal transmission tower. Nidoking uses this tail to smash, constrict, or break the bones of its prey and enemies. The tail can also be swung to compose distance between it and its foes before Nidoking charges. Its steel-like hide adds to its powerful, rampaging charges. Nidoking's horn is powerful enough to crush diamonds. Nidoking is known to be very proud of its own strength. When Nidoking goes on a rampage, it becomes impossible to control. Only a Nidoqueen can calm it down from its rampages. As shown in the manga, Nidoking has strong acid within its claws. Being the result of evolution via an Evolution stone, Nidoking is rarely found in the wild, though they can be found in savannas and plains.

Trivia

  • Nidoking and its female counterpart Nidoqueen share their category with Rhydon and Rhyperior. They are all known as the Drill Pokémon. Additionally, all four are partly Ground types.
  • Although its female counterpart Nidoqueen cannot be bred, Nidoking can.
  • Nidoqueen and Nidoking are the only Pokémon with a Poison/Ground type combination.
  • Nidoking is a popular choice with anime rivals, as two of Ash's main rivals (Gary and Paul) have one, as well as Jimmy's main rival.

Origin

Nidoking appears to share traits of rhinocerosesgorillasmicerabbits, and porcupines.

Name origin

Nidoking may be a combination of needle and king (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.
