Description: Similar to the husk of a cicada, Shedinja is a particularly unique Pokémon. Unlike other Pokémon which can evolve or are the evolutions of others, Shedinja is an evolutionary by product of Nincada. When Nincada evolves into Ninjask, it will occasionally leave behind a shell. This shell becomes the Bug and Ghost type Pokémon, Shedinja. Its body is light brown on top and grey on the bottom. It has four, stubby legs, and three pairs of jagged wings, as well as a white halo that hovers above its head. There is a hole in Shedinja's back which reveals that it is completely hollow, with no internal organs whatsoever; however, superstitious people will not look into that hole because of a myth that doing so will allow Shedinja to steal your soul. Shedinja do not breath, nor can they move their limbs or wings, but rather hover through supernatural means.
