'''Shaymin''' ([[List of Japanese Pokémon names|Japanese]]: '''シェイミ''' ''Shaymin'') is a {{type|Grass}} [[Mythical Pokémon]] introduced in [[Generation IV]].
   
It was not officially revealed until February of 2008, when it was listed as a star of ''[[M11|Giratina and the Sky Warrior]]''. In early June of the same year, its Sky Forme was revealed, which takes on the {{type2|Flying}} as a secondary type.

While it is not known to [[Evolution|evolve]] into or from another Pokémon, it has a [[List of Pokémon with form differences#Shaymin|second Forme]] activated by using a [[Gracidea|Gracidea flower]] in the daytime. Its original Forme, '''Land Forme''', will then become the {{2t|Grass|Flying}}-type '''Sky Forme'''. Shaymin's Sky Forme will revert into its Land Forme during the night or when {{status|frozen}}. Other circumstances may also cause it to revert<!--Please do not expand here-->.

Shaymin is a small, hedgehog-like creature. Its body is pure white. Its back is covered with green fur and has a pink flower with two leaves on each side of its head, which resembles the {{OBP|Gracidea|flower}} flower, several Gracidea-like flowers also appear on its back whenever it feels comfortable, but when it senses an impending danger, it rapidly hides it back. Its legs are short and its underside is plump. Shaymin is the smallest legendary Pokémon to date. According to the Pokédex height of 0'08", it is also among the smallest Pokémon in existence, with its comrades being {{p|Diglett}}, {{p|Natu}}, {{p|Azurill}}, {{p|Budew}}, {{p|Burmy}}, and {{p|Chingling}}.

Shaymin is the smallest Mythical Pokémon to date.
[[File:Shaymin revert.png|250px|thumb|{{mov|Shaymin|Shaymin|11}} reverting back at night and in the cold]]
 
As first revealed by Japan's [[CoroCoro]] Magazine, Shaymin has [[Form differences#Shaymin|two forms]]. The first (Land Forme) is the original form seen in {{game|Diamond and Pearl|s}}. The second is the Sky Forme which debuted in ''[[M11|Giratina and the Sky Warrior]]''. Shaymin will change into Sky Forme and back if it touches a {{OBP|Gracidea|flower}}. Shaymin can't be in this form at night or if it has [[Status ailment#Freeze|contact with ice]]. Shaymin's Sky Forme has a canid-like appearance that also bears some resemblance to a small reindeer. It has a small, slender body. The fur on its back appears to have shifted into a mohawk; it has a red flower petal on the right side of its neck, looking like a scarf or cape, and flat, white ears that look like wings or antlers. It has a small ruff on the front of its neck and a stumpy tail.
 
   
====Gender differences====
+
In Sky Forme, it has a slender, canine appearance like that of a small reindeer. The fur on its back becomes a mohawk, and it has a red flower petal on the left side of its neck, resembling a scarf or cape. It has flat, white ears resembling wings, a small tuft of fur on the front of its neck, and a stumpy tail. Shaymin will change into Sky Forme and back if it touches a [[Gracidea]]. It reverts to Land Forme at night or if it is {{status|Freeze|frozen}}. Shaymin can instantly purify any polluted area of all impurities in the air and transform it into a lush field of flowers. It takes in the polluted air, purifies it inside its body, breaks it down into water and light, and releases the purified substance in a violent, explosive burst. Its power varies based on the type of pollution absorbed. Shaymin can also communicate with telepathy and sense the gratitude of others.
Shaymin is a genderless species.
 
   
====Special abilities====
+
Each season, Shaymin gathers with others in a flower field somewhere and migrates from there. This behavior is called Flower Carrying because a new field of flowers grow where it lands. Shaymin is also attracted to areas where there is a lot of gratitude. Its personality is almost opposite with each form: in Land Forme, it is shy and easily scared, while in Sky Forme, it is courageous and playful. If wet, it shakes itself to dry itself off, and exhibits the behavior of scratching itself with a hind leg. Shaymin lives in fields of flowers. Since it camouflages by curling itself up, it can easily escape people's notice. It has been seen liking sweet food. Shaymin is the [[signature move|only known Pokémon]] to know {{m|Seed Flare}}.

This ability is known as {{m|Seed Flare}}, their [[signature move]]. Its power varies on the type of pollution absorbed. Shaymin can also communicate with telepathy and sense the gratitude of others, hence its species classification, the ''Gratitude Pokémon''.

  +
Shaymin debuted in ''[[M11|Giratina and the Sky Warrior]]'', where it was fleeing from {{mov|Giratina}}.

==Trivia==
 
==Trivia==
* Shaymin ties with {{p|Mew}} and {{p|Celebi}} for the highest [[catch rate]] among all [[legendary Pokémon]].
+
* Shaymin's Sky Forme has a different [[cry]] than its Land Forme.
* Like {{p|Darkrai}}, despite being an event-exclusive legendary Pokémon, both the [[Surf glitch]] and [[tweaking]] are able to allow the player to access the [[Flower Paradise]] without the event having been activated.
+
** In [[Generation IV]], this cry cannot be played in the Pokédex, due to it only registering the first Forme encountered. As wild or traded Shaymin will be in Land Forme and Pokémon aren't registered in link battles, it is impossible to register a Sky Forme Shaymin.
** This has been rectified in {{game|Platinum}}, as neither Pokémon will appear without the event, even if the player manages to access their area.
 
* Land Forme Shaymin is the first pure Grass-type legendary Pokémon.
 
* Although Shaymin is a legendary Pokémon, normal wild Pokémon battle music plays while battling it. It shares this with {{p|Cresselia}}, {{p|Latias}}, and {{p|Latios}}.
 
* Shaymin is implied to be behind the creation of [[Floaroma Town]], as one person notes it was a barren wasteland until one day flowers mysteriously covered it all after someone gave thanks for life's blessings. Additionally, the woman who gives the {{player}} a {{OBP|Gracidea|flower}} flower can be found in Floaroma Town.
 
* [[Marley]] makes brief references to Shaymin in {{game2|Diamond|Pearl|Platinum}} if spoken with during the player's travel with her in {{si|Victory Road}}. She wants to reach the smooth rock on {{rt|224|Sinnoh}}. If a Shaymin is in the player's party, she will take notice.
 
* Shaymin seems to appear only when someone gives thanks for a significant blessing in their life. A girl in [[Floaroma Town]] states that the flowers the town is famous for appeared after someone gave thanks for nature's blessings. With [[Oak's Letter]], Shaymin will lead the player to [[Flower Paradise]] after they give thanks for their Pokémon journey at the white rock on {{rt|224|Sinnoh}}.
 
* Unlike most [[legendary Pokémon]], Shaymin needs only 1,059,860 [[Experience]] to get to level 100, whereas others need 1,250,000. It shares this trait with {{p|Mew}} and {{p|Celebi}}.
 
* Shaymin's Sky Forme has a different [[cry]] than its Land Forme, making Shaymin the first Pokémon to have different cries for different forms, and the first Pokémon to change its cry since the [[player character]]'s {{p|Pikachu}} in {{game|Yellow}}.
 
 
** Despite this, the only cry used in [[Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs]] is the one of its Land Forme.
 
** Despite this, the only cry used in [[Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs]] is the one of its Land Forme.
* Due to the Pokédex only registering the first forme's cry, it is impossible to listen to the Sky Forme's cry on it. This is because Shaymin traded in their Sky Forme revert to Land Forme, and wild Shaymin are always in their Land Forme. Also, Pokémon battled between players are not registered in the Pokédex, meaning that it is impossible to register a Sky Forme Shaymin before the Land Forme.
+
* A Shaymin caught at the Flower Paradise in Pokémon Platinum will be a [[fateful encounter]] Pokémon.
* Shaymin is one of two legendary Pokémon capable of using the [[Appendix:F.E.A.R.|F.E.A.R.]] strategy (the other is {{p|Mew}}).
+
* If a {{status|freeze|frozen}} Shaymin in Sky Forme is holding a [[Lum Berry]] or an [[Aspear Berry]], it will eat the Berry after transforming back to Land Forme.
* In Sky Forme, Shaymin is the only legendary Flying-type Pokémon weak to Flying-type attacks.
+
* Despite being a [[Mythical Pokémon]], normal [[wild Pokémon]] battle music plays while battling it. It is the only Mythical Pokémon with this trait.
* Shaymin is one of two Pokémon whose ability changes depending on its form, the other being {{p|Giratina}}.
+
* In [[Generation VI]] and prior it is impossible to use Shaymin's Sky Forme in the [[Battle Spot]] or in online competitions that allow Mythical Pokémon. This is because only Pokémon stored in the [[PC]] can be used and Shaymin would revert to Land Forme as soon as deposited. In [[Generation VII]] this was changed so that Sky Forme can be deposited into the PC and only revert to Land Forme when withdrawn.
* Shaymin is tied with {{p|Celebi}} for highest [[base stat total]] of all {{type2|Grass}} Pokémon.
 
* A Shaymin caught at the Flower Paradise in {{game|Platinum}} will be a [[fateful encounter]] Pokémon, making it the only Pokémon able to be caught from the wild that has this status. This is to allow it to transform into Sky Forme, as non-fateful Shaymin cannot transform.
 
** This may be part of the reason why [[Oak's Letter]] was never released for distribution to Diamond and Pearl, as the Shaymin in those games, even if it is caught legitimately, will not be a fateful encounter Shaymin and thus not be able to transform. The reasoning behind disallowing this, of course, was to disallow those who had [[cheating|cheated]] to get Shaymin and those who used the [[Surf glitch]] and [[tweaking]] to do so from obtaining the otherwise-special Sky Forme Shaymin.
 
*Sky Forme Shaymin has the highest base Speed of all Grass-types.
 
*Fans have nicknamed Shaymin's Sky Forme 'Skymin'.
 
* Land Forme Shaymin is the shortest legendary Pokémon.
 
   
 
===Origin===
 
===Origin===
Shaymin is based on a {{wp|hedgehog}}. However, its white body and the grass-like fur on its back makes it somewhat resemble a {{wp|Chia Pet}} as well. Moreover, when Shaymin (Land Forme) blooms with flowers, as seen in the anime, Shaymin appears as a bouquet of flowers, which serves to emphasize Shaymin's role as the Gratitude Pokémon. On the other hand, Shaymin's Sky Forme shares most of its traits with a small, young {{wp|terrier}}-type dog, but its sprightly behavior, its affinity for flowers, and its ability to fly bring to mind {{wp|fairy|faeries}}. Shaymin's Sky Forme has a few aspects that resemble that of a {{wp|reindeer}} as well.

Sky Forme Shaymin shares most of its traits with a small, young {{wp|terrier}}-type dog, but its sprightly behavior, its affinity for flowers, and its ability to fly bring to mind {{wp|angel}}s and {{wp|fairy|fairies}}. Shaymin's Sky Forme has a few aspects that resemble a {{wp|reindeer}} as well. Due to its healing abilities, it could also be based on a {{wp|guardian angel}}.
   
 
====Name origin====
 
====Name origin====
Its name is possibly a combination of 謝 ''sha'' (thanks/gratitude) or ジェイド ''jeido'' (jade), which is one of Shaymin's most dominant colors, and 蝟 ''harinezu'''mi''''' (hedgehog). Its name could also be a combination of ''shay'' and ''vitamin''. Also, shaman can be pronounced like Shaymin, so it may be like a mythical shaman. In addition, the name Shaymin may be a corruption of the Hebrew word Shamayim, which means "sky" and is the name of the first heaven in Jewish mysticism. This correlates directly with Shaymin's Sky Forme.
+
Shaymin may be a combination of 謝 ''xiè'' (Chinese for ''thanks/gratitude'') and 蝟 ''harinezumi'' (hedgehog). It may also involve ''shaman'' (a mystic) or ''stamen'' (a plant part). Alternatively, it may be a corruption of ם‎שמי‎ ''{{wp|Shamayim}}'' (Hebrew for ''heaven/sky''), correlating directly with Shaymin's Sky Forme.

Shaymin (Japanese: シェイミ Shaymin) is a Grass-type Mythical Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

While it is not known to evolve into or from another Pokémon, it has a second Forme activated by using a Gracidea flower in the daytime. Its original Forme, Land Forme, will then become the Grass/Flying-type Sky Forme. Shaymin's Sky Forme will revert into its Land Forme during the night or when frozen. Other circumstances may also cause it to revert.

Shaymin was officially revealed in February 2008, when it was listed as a star of Giratina and the Sky Warrior. In early June of the same year, its Sky Forme was revealed.

Biology

Land Forme Shaymin's petals after absorbing toxins
Sky Forme Shaymin's petals after absorbing toxins

Shaymin is a small, white hedgehog-like Pokémon. In Land Forme, it has green grass-like fur on its back and a pink flower with two leaves on each side of its head, which resembles the Gracidea flower. Several Gracidea-like flowers also appear on its back whenever it feels comfortable, but when it senses an impending danger, it rapidly hides it back. Its legs are short and its underside is plump. Shaymin is the smallest Mythical Pokémon to date.

In Sky Forme, it has a slender, canine appearance like that of a small reindeer. The fur on its back becomes a mohawk, and it has a red flower petal on the left side of its neck, resembling a scarf or cape. It has flat, white ears resembling wings, a small tuft of fur on the front of its neck, and a stumpy tail. Shaymin will change into Sky Forme and back if it touches a Gracidea. It reverts to Land Forme at night or if it is frozen. Shaymin can instantly purify any polluted area of all impurities in the air and transform it into a lush field of flowers. It takes in the polluted air, purifies it inside its body, breaks it down into water and light, and releases the purified substance in a violent, explosive burst. Its power varies based on the type of pollution absorbed. Shaymin can also communicate with telepathy and sense the gratitude of others.

Each season, Shaymin gathers with others in a flower field somewhere and migrates from there. This behavior is called Flower Carrying because a new field of flowers grow where it lands. Shaymin is also attracted to areas where there is a lot of gratitude. Its personality is almost opposite with each form: in Land Forme, it is shy and easily scared, while in Sky Forme, it is courageous and playful. If wet, it shakes itself to dry itself off, and exhibits the behavior of scratching itself with a hind leg. Shaymin lives in fields of flowers. Since it camouflages by curling itself up, it can easily escape people's notice. It has been seen liking sweet food. Shaymin is the only known Pokémon to know Seed Flare.

Major appearances

Shaymin (M11)

Shaymin debuted in Giratina and the Sky Warrior, where it was fleeing from Giratina. It thought that Giratina wanted to eat it, but in reality, the Renegade Pokémon wanted to use Shaymin's Seed Flare to open a portal from the Reverse World to the real world. It appeared in both of its Formes in the movie. This Shaymin had the ability to talk via telepathy.

Shaymin (anime)

A Shaymin appeared in Memories in the Mist!, where it encountered Mallow after being drawn to her strong feelings of gratitude towards her late mother. Mallow took care of it until SM146, where Shaymin was exposed to some Gracideas, transforming into its Sky Forme, and then flew away.

Other

Shaymin made its main series debut in Keeping In Top Forme!, where Marley was protecting it from Team Rocket. She, along with Ash and his friends, then spent the majority of the episode trying to take Shaymin to a flower field so it could reunite with its friends.

Minor appearances

A Shaymin made a cameo appearance in its Land Forme during the ending credits in Meloetta's Moonlight Serenade.

Three Shaymin appeared in their Sky Formes in SM146, where they greeted the Shaymin Mallow had been taking care of and accompanied it during its departure.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Shaymin debuted as a silhouette in a fantasy in Unplugging Rotom (Heat, Wash, Mow, Fan, Frost).

Shaymin physically debuted in The Final Dimensional Duel IV. Marley was introduced to it by a letter from Professor Oak. In the Distortion World, Shaymin tried its best not to get involved in a big clash that broke out between the rest of the Legendary Pokémon. Cyrus then caught Shaymin in his hands and showed the gratitude towards Shaymin that allowed it to transform into its Sky Forme. After Charon was arrested, Shaymin chose to stay with Marley.

Other appearances

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U

Shaymin appears in both Formes as a trophy in the 3DS version of the game. It also randomly appears on Unova Pokémon League, where it changes from Land to Sky Forme. It does not affect the battle in any way.

Trophy information

NA: When in its Land Forme, this Pokémon sports a fetching pink flower. In Sky Forme, it can take to the air with ease. This Legendary Pokémon is hard to find, but it can sense anyone with a grateful heart. This ability is where the name "Gratitude Pokémon" comes from.

PAL: No wonder this Mythical Pokémon is so hard to find! In its Land Forme, it looks just like a flowery patch of grass. Good luck spotting that in a field! Shaymin has two different forms, though, and in Sky Forme, it can fly. In both forms, Shaymin reacts to gratitude, hence its nickname: the Gratitude Pokémon.

Trivia

  • Shaymin's Sky Forme has a different cry than its Land Forme.
    • In Generation IV, this cry cannot be played in the Pokédex, due to it only registering the first Forme encountered. As wild or traded Shaymin will be in Land Forme and Pokémon aren't registered in link battles, it is impossible to register a Sky Forme Shaymin.
    • Despite this, the only cry used in Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs is the one of its Land Forme.
  • A Shaymin caught at the Flower Paradise in Pokémon Platinum will be a fateful encounter Pokémon.
  • If a frozen Shaymin in Sky Forme is holding a Lum Berry or an Aspear Berry, it will eat the Berry after transforming back to Land Forme.
  • Despite being a Mythical Pokémon, normal wild Pokémon battle music plays while battling it. It is the only Mythical Pokémon with this trait.
  • In Generation VI and prior it is impossible to use Shaymin's Sky Forme in the Battle Spot or in online competitions that allow Mythical Pokémon. This is because only Pokémon stored in the PC can be used and Shaymin would revert to Land Forme as soon as deposited. In Generation VII this was changed so that Sky Forme can be deposited into the PC and only revert to Land Forme when withdrawn.

Origin

Shaymin is based on a hedgehog. However, its white body and the grass-like fur on its back makes it somewhat resemble a Chia Pet as well. Moreover, when Land Forme Shaymin blooms with flowers, as seen in the anime, Shaymin appears as a bouquet of flowers, emphasizing Shaymin's role as the Gratitude Pokémon.

Sky Forme Shaymin shares most of its traits with a small, young terrier-type dog, but its sprightly behavior, its affinity for flowers, and its ability to fly bring to mind angels and fairies. Shaymin's Sky Forme has a few aspects that resemble a reindeer as well. Due to its healing abilities, it could also be based on a guardian angel.

Name origin

Shaymin may be a combination of 謝 xiè (Chinese for thanks/gratitude) and 蝟 harinezumi (hedgehog). It may also involve shaman (a mystic) or stamen (a plant part). Alternatively, it may be a corruption of ם‎שמי‎ Shamayim (Hebrew for heaven/sky), correlating directly with Shaymin's Sky Forme.
