Herdier (Japanese: ハーデリア Herderrie) is a Normal-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

It evolves from Lillipup starting at level 16 and evolves into Stoutland starting at level 32.

Biology

Herdier is a light brown, canine Pokémon with a short snout. Its face has long, cream fur, which forms a mustache and a three-pointed crest. Its ears are large and perked, and it has a black nose. It has shaggy dark blue fur covering its body and a short tail. This hard, thick fur serves to protect Herdier from attacks. It has four short legs, with three-toed paws. Each paw has a dark blue paw pad that can be seen in Pokédex 3D Pro.

Herdier is very loyal, smart, friendly, and it will help its Trainer raise other Pokémon. However it will not obey anyone who disrespects it, It has helped Trainers since long ago. Herdier has been theorized to have been the first Pokémon to have been partnered with humans based on what was discovered on the walls of caves. Its dense fur continues to grow endlessly. As Herider's fur grows, it becomes more springily and impervious. Any claws or fang attempting to penetrate its fur would just bounce off. However, the fur makes Herider difficult to train due to how much it costs to groom its dense fur.
