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, Shaymin has a second form activated by using a Gracidea flower in the daytime. Its original form, Land Forme, will then become the Grass/Flying-type Sky Forme. Shaymin's Sky Forme will revert into and remain in its Land Forme during the night or when frozen. Other circumstances may also cause it to revert.

(Specifics may differ in past games. Refer to Game data→Form data for these details.)

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 extra petals

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. More flowers appear on its back whenever it feels comfortable, but when it senses danger, it rapidly hides them again. Its legs are short and its underside is plump. Shaymin is the smallest Mythical Pokémon to date, and one of the shortest Grass-type Pokémon.

 
Land Forme Shaymin's petals after absorbing toxins

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 wherever it lands. Shaymin is also attracted to areas where there is a lot of gratitude. Land Forme Shaymin has a shy personality and is easily scared. If wet, it shakes itself dry. It also exhibits the behavior of scratching itself with its 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 observed to like sweet food.

Shaymin is the only known Pokémon capable of learning the move Seed Flare.

Forms

 
Sky Forme Shaymin's petals after absorbing toxins

Shaymin has two forms it can change between: Land Forme and Sky Forme.

In Sky Forme, it has a slender, canine-like appearance. 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.

The blooming of Gracidea flowers confers the power of flight upon Shaymin, transforming it into its Sky Forme. It reverts to Land Forme at night or if it is frozen. Sky Forme Shaymin has a courageous, energetic, and playful personality. It spreads feelings of gratitude when it takes flight.

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.

Mallow's Shaymin

In Memories in the Mist!, a Shaymin encountered Mallow after being drawn to her strong feelings of gratitude towards her late mother. Mallow took care of it until Thank You, Alola! The Journey Continues!, where Shaymin was exposed to some Gracideas, transforming into its Sky Forme, and then flew away. This Shaymin was unique in that, in its Sky Forme, its eyes resembled the eyes of Mallow's mother, instead of those of a regular Shaymin.

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 appeared in its Land Forme during the ending credits in Meloetta's Moonlight Serenade.

Three Shaymin appeared in their Sky Formes in Thank You, Alola! The Journey Continues!, where they greeted the Shaymin Mallow had been taking care of and accompanied it during its departure.

Shaymin trophy in Super Smash Bros. for 3DS

Shaymin also appears in both Formes as a single trophy in the 3DS version of the game.

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.'

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Shaymin appears as Spirits in its Land Forme and Sky Forme.

Form data

Shaymin has two forms it can change between: Land Forme, introduced in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, and Sky Forme, introduced in Pokémon Platinum.

Normally, Shaymin is in its Land Forme, which is Grass-type and resembles a hedgehog. When exposed to a Gracidea, Shaymin transforms into its Sky Forme, which is Grass/Flying-type and white in color.

Sky Forme Shaymin will revert back into and remain in its Land Forme at night or if it is frozen; Shaymin also changes back to Land Forme when deposited in the PC (prior to Generation VII), when withdrawn from the PC (Generation VII onward), when deposited in Pokémon Bank (but not Pokémon HOME), or when deposited in the Pokémon Day Care or Pokémon Nursery. 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. In Pokémon Legends: Arceus, Sky Forme Shaymin will also revert to Land Forme when exposed to a Gracidea again, and will not revert back into its Land Forme at night unless it enters a battle during the night. Frostbite will also cause it to revert to Land Forme. In Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, Sky Forme Shaymin will not revert back into its Land Forme at night until after a battle.

The two forms have different base stats, Abilities, types, moves they can learn, and cries.

In Generation IV, Sky Forme Shaymin's cry cannot be played in the Pokédex, due to it only registering the first form 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. The only cry used for Shaymin in Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs is the one of its Land Forme.

Trivia

Origin

Shaymin is based on a hedgehog. However, its white body and the grass-like fur on its back make it somewhat resemble a Chia Pet as well. It may also be inspired by flower meadows or flower gardens. Moreover, when Land Forme Shaymin blooms with flowers, as seen in the anime, Shaymin appears as a bouquet of flowers, which are commonly given as a sign of thankfulness, emphasizing Shaymin's role as the Gratitude Pokémon. The flower on its body resembles a Gracidea and could be based on a hydrangea, particularly the bigleaf hydrangea. It also shares, together with the leaves on its Sky Form's neck, similarities with a poinsetta, a popular christmas flower.

Shaymin's Sky Forme has a few aspects, like antlers, that resemble reindeers and the ability to fly could be based on Santa Claus's reindeer, but its sprightly behavior, an affinity for flowers, and the ability to fly bring to mind angels and fairies. Due to its healing abilities, it could also be based on a guardian angel. Given the appearance of the flower around its neck resembling the knot of a neckerchief, the resemblance to the green of its legs to boots or gloves, ability to fly, and more confident attitude seen in the anime, Sky Forme Shaymin may be inspired by superheroes, particularly those in the Japanese sentai genre.

Shaymin's ability to convert toxic gases into fresh air may be a reference to the environmentalist practice of removing pollution from nature for a healthier ecosystem. It could also be a reference to plants filtering non-breathable carbon dioxide from the atmosphere into breathable oxygen, or decomposer organisms converting decaying or waste materials into nutrient-rich soil for future plant growth. Its ability to transform land into a flower field in combination with its flying-type could also be a reference to pollen and spores in the air or in the wind floating seeds.

Name origin

Shaymin is from 謝謝 xièxie (Chinese for thanks).[1] It may also be derived from 蝟 harinezumi (hedgehog) and ם‎שמי‎ Shamayim (Hebrew for heaven) with the latter correlating directly with Shaymin's Sky Forme.
