Ruby SHEDINJA’s hard body doesn’t move - not even a twitch. In fact, its body appears to be merely a hollow shell. It is believed that this POKéMON will steal the spirit of anyone peering into its hollow body from its back.
Sapphire SHEDINJA is a peculiar POKéMON. It seems to appear unsought in a POKé BALL after a NINCADA evolves. This bizarre POKéMON is entirely immobile - it doesn’t even breathe.
