Name origin
====Name origin====
Nidoqueen may be a combination of ''needle'' and ''{{wp|queen}}'' (reflective of its gender and being the final evolution). ''Nido'' may also be based on ''{{wp|cnidocyte}}'', a type of venomous cell responsible for the stings delivered by stinging animals, most notably by {{wp|jellyfish}}. Alternatively, it may be based on 二 ''ni'' (two) or 二度 ''nido'' (two times/two degrees), referring to there being two distinct evolutionary lines using the name with similar names and traits.
