Shiftry is a bipedal, portly Pokémon that appears to be made of wood. A shaggy white mane covers most of its face and trails down its back. Long pointed ears poke out the top of its mane, and it has a long, pointed nose and a large mouth with teeth that are usually bared. Its eyes are yellow with black sclerae. This Pokémon's feet resemble Japanese {{wp|Geta (footwear)|tengu-geta}}. Three broad leaves with brown spokes form each of its hands, and are used to create powerful winds close to 100 feet (30 meters) per second in speed. A female will have smaller leaves than the male.
Shiftry is a wicked and mysterious Pokémon that lives atop ancient trees in {{DL|List of Pokémon by habitat|Forest Pokémon|deep forests}}. It arrives with chilly, wintry winds and is feared by people as the guardian of the forest. It is able to read an opponent’sopponent's mind, and then take preemptive action. [[AG037|In the anime]], it was shown to lead large groups of {{p|Seedot}} and {{p|Nuzleaf}}.
