Unfortunately, I've found that Shedinja has very little competitive use. I was so excited to use it for the first time, because I thought it was like, almost invincible with its wonder guard. Boy was I wrong. All the types that can harrm it--fire, flying, ghost, rock, and dark--are pretty common types. Plus you never know what types of moves a Pokemon has. A good example of this was when I got a nasty surprise of a Weezing that knew flamethrower. But the nail that seals the coffin for Shedinja is that it is instantly defeated by residual damage. This means that if it gets confused, poisoned, burnt, hurt by sandstorm damage, or leech seeded, Shedinja's done for. Too much uncertainty.

But in the rare instant when you come across an opponent who doesn't have any moves of that type, and has no way of inflicting residual damage, Shedinja is literally untouchable. But sending Shedinja out into an unknown situation is basically like playing Russian Roulette.

But on the bright side, Ninjask is a great Pokemon. In my opinion, it's one of the best in Gen III.

Also on the bright side, Shedinja is by far the easiest Pokemon to EV train. HP, defense, and special defense are basically useless. So just put it all in speed and attack (most of its attacks are ghost attacks, which are physical).

Shedinja is very unique. When I first got I used it for a while to try it out. No other pokemon has only 1 hp. xD

      I think that shedinja is a very interesting pokemon that I actually use a lot because if I am very familiar with a certain trainer, most of the time gym leaders, I can know with certainty if this trainer has a move that shedinja is weak to and therefor know whether to use it or not. I like to troll my friends with it because I know there pokemon and there tendencies really well

      You must not have played any games past Gen I. There's plenty of very good bug Pokemon, and bug-type moves are some of the best moves in the game.

        Shedinja is an OK Pokémon, since there are some things i like about it. First, i like the ghost-bug type combination, it reminds me like a dead bug who was revived for taking revenge. However, the downside is that the combination is very weak. Second, the Wonder Guard ability. This ability is a good way to protect it from non-effective and normal moves. There is one thing i don't like, however, and that's the 1 HP it has.

        Overall, this Pokémon is perfect if you wanna go on a sweep.

        I say ninjask and shedinja are a great pair to add to your party. I have both on my ruby right now. Shedinja is really no good against real people but it's not bad against stupid NPCs.

        I think it's a great gimmick Pokemon as far as gimmicks go. And a well trained one can be really useful come capturing legendries, with the use of False Swipe (never did this personally). But that's as far as it goes honestly. 1 HP left it extremely suspect to weather and status, which in competitive is pretty much ubiquitous. Only gets worse in the later generations, with field hazards and such. Definitely an interesting Pokemon, though.

        I really don't mind Shedinja that much. Im using it in my Soulsilver team, and its a great thrill using it! So in my opinion, I like Shedinja, its not a bad Pokémon at all.

          I don't find Shedinja very useful, honestly. There are five types that insta-kill it, some of them common ones. Its stats and movepool aren't anything to write home about, either.

            Yeah Shedninja is a good looking and a Pokemon with a good gimmick. But don't you guys know that Shed ninja is a flop idea in battle. With only 1 hp its wrost actually. If we don't go to its ghost looking spirit personality everything is bad actually.But yeah he could learn good moves but not useful.

            Shedninja is, let's say intriguing.

            To think that it appears when you evolve your Nincada to Ninjask when caught in a Pokeball.
            I freaked out when I saw Shedninja in my party, thinking that it is a Pokemon not to be obtained normally, a glitch that is. I never had Shedninja before THAT happened so that explains why I freaked out and thought of that.

            Anyway, it's not half bad for a bug type.
            Besides, it can be good, not as good as Ninjask though.

                So they released a speed boost torchic... I wanna see a legit pokemon other than Shedinja with wonder guard. I mean there are so many ways to get past wonder guard now, plus as long as they don't give it to a ghost/dark type it'll be ok.

                      I have to say, when I was just a kid playing R/S/E games for the first time, and the first time I got myself a Shedinja, I thought it was a glitch because it just had 1HP! xD I thought: Whaaaaat?! You can't be serious, but then I noticed in combination with his ability, Wonder Guard, it's doesn't really matter (Therefore, Shedinja can only be attacked by moves that are super-effective on him)

                      I like the unique way in which you can obtain Shedinja, and it kinda makes sense why Shedinja is a Bug/Ghost type because of this (like this type combination too). I never saw the opportunity though to actually train one or have a Shedinja in my team, but I might as well try it out sometime!

                        I think Shedinja's pretty good if you get it early on and grind it like crazy to keep it a number of levels above what you expect to encounter. I caught myself a Nincada outside of Rusboro and got it to level 20 at Slateport, it and Ninjask are the most powerful Pokemon on my team right now in Emerald.

When it comes to battling, however, Shedinja has gotta be one of the most complex Pokémon that you would ever be able to come across. d: It's got only a single HP, and its overall stats are extremely low. It doesn't have too much of a big movepool, either. It does have an ability known as "Wonder Guard," though, which protects it from any move that it's not super-effective to. Veteran players may have some knowledge on what this Pokémon's weaknesses are and such, but those who are new (most likely) may not, which would give them a hard time when they try to take Shedinja down. Personally, I haven't used this Pokémon in any of my battles, but I might do it at some point in the future!

                              Nice Answer

                              Anyway, I think Shedinja's useless, many weak points, 1HP that makes any defense stats useless especially during weather obstacles, and mainly, I Just Don't Like It's Design or Anything Related To It!!

                              Shedinja's a mess in my opinion , with abologies to anyone who likes that pokemon

                                  I like Shedinja's design and it's typing - I've never used one just yet though - Mainly because I am afraid that it would be dead most of the time - but I might use one next time I play R/S/E again
