Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Shedinja only has one hp and even with wonder guard this makes it easy to beat why did creators make shedinja that way?

Im asking because its pretty unusual. Also the Pokedex says if you look in the back of a Shedinja it will trap your soul or something does that mean in a way he could learn imprison.

Shedinja is really just a gimmick pokemon. But in the hands of the right trainer, can actually be pretty deadly. He's great for switching into resistant attacks, since he's impervious to all damage from non super effective attacks. That means he can work great defensively despite his sweeping stats. But it only looks good on paper, because most trainers have something to counter him, and he's also not protected from status or weather, making him an easy kill. But if you can clear your opponent's team of any threats before sending him out, Shedinja is unstoppable. As for the soul stealing thing, the pokedex entries are just there to give some interesting information about the pokemon, but isn't necessarily true for how the pokemon functions in the game. (they say that Nidoking can snap a telephone pole as if it were a matchstick.)

Well it is technichally a ghost shell shed from a shedinja. I suppose it has 1hp because it seems very fragile, and as for the magical guard...... well, if you're a resurrected inanimate object, what can't you do? It makes you think of the best ways to use AND beat it. The creators of pokemon weren't trying to make a simple kids game. they added as much strategy as possible and made you require all your cunning skills to win. you have to be smart. and if you are (and know the ways of shedinja) you'll have a great pokemon to battle with.

*a ghost shell shed from a NINJASK maybe?
Shed from a nincada, you mean. It supposedly sheds off its skin ( which turns into shedinja ) then evolves into ninjask.
