In honour of Earth Day, here’s Shiftry
Shiftry, the Wicked Pokémon. Shiftry is a mysterious creature that lives deep within the forest. They are said to live in the tops of trees that are over 1,000 years old.

Shiftry is the Wicked Pokemon, and it does look rather mean and evil. It evolved from Nuzleaf by Leaf Stone. It had hands as a Nuzleaf, but those hands have turned into leaves. I wonder if that’s why it looks kind of angry, haha.
Stat-wise, it has good Attack and Sp Attack, and decent Speed and HP. But its defenses are poor, and its type of Grass/Dark isn’t great defensively (none of Grass or Dark’s weaknesses cancel each other), having many weaknesses, including double weakness to Bug. My Volcarona killed a lot of Shiftries quite quickly in the Battle Subway.
