Known for their extreme speed, people used to believe that Ninjask could turn invisible because of how fast they move. They are quite difficult to train, trying even skilled Trainers' patience, and will make an awful, high-pitched cry at Trainers who do a poor job. This cry can induce headaches in humans and Pokémon alike. In the wild, Ninjask prefer tropical to temperate forests and feed off the sap of trees.
