Shedinja (Japanese: ヌケニン Nukenin) is a Psychic-type Basic Pokémon card. It is part of the Vivid Voltage expansion.

Although it is a Basic Pokémon, due to its Shell Survival Ability, it cannot be put into play by any means (including while setting up to play) except by the Cast-Off Shell Ability on Ninjask from the same expansion. It is also ruled that this card cannot be the only Basic Pokémon in a deck because of its Ability.
