'''Shiftry''' ([[List of Japanese Pokémon names|Japanese]]: '''ダーテング''' ''Dirteng'') is a dual-type {{2t|Grass|Dark}} {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} introduced in [[Generation III]].
 
It [[Evolution|evolves]] from {{p|Nuzleaf}} when exposed to a [[Leaf Stone]]. It is the final form of {{p|Seedot}}.
 
=Pokédex entries=Biology==
;Shiftry is a bipedal, portly [[Pokémon Ruby]]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 mysterious Pokémon that is said to live atop towering trees dating back over a thousand years. It creates terrific windstorms with the fans it holds.
; [[Pokémon Emerald]]
: It is said to arrive on chilly, wintry winds. Feared from long ago as the guardian of forests, this Pokémon lives in a deep forest where people do not venture.
 
=NameShiftry origin=is a wicked, mysterious, and very rare Pokémon that lives atop ancient trees in {{DL|List of Pokémon by habitat|Forest Pokémon|deep tropical 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's mind, and then take preemptive action. [[AG037|In the anime]], it was shown to lead large groups of {{p|Seedot}} and {{p|Nuzleaf}}.
Shiftry's name is probably a combination of the words ''shifty'', deceitful, and ''tree''. The ''teng'' in ''Dirteng'' probably refers to 天狗 ''[[wp:Tengu|Tengu]]'', tricky Japanese goblins. Shiftry's German and French names also have ''Tengu'' incorporated in them.
 
Shiftry==In arethe probably based on Tengu, who are known for their long noses, cruel tricks, and ability to read minds.anime==

==Trivia==
*Shiftry's evolutionary line can be seen as a counterpart to {{p|Ludicolo}}'s family. All members of their respective families are part {{type|Grass}}, they first evolve at level 14, a respective [[evolutionary stone]] is used to reach the final stage, both of them are [[version-exclusive]] between {{game|Ruby and Sapphire|s}}, and both are based on yōkai: Shiftry's family is based on the {{wp|tengu}} and Ludicolo's family is based on the {{wp|Kappa (folklore)|kappa}}.
 
===Origin===
Shiftry are based on the ''{{wp|tengu}}'', who are known for their cruel tricks, ability to read minds, for protecting forests, and for wielding magical leaf fans called 羽団扇 ''hauchiwa'', known to have the power to stir great winds. Tengu are also often depicted with long noses, flowing white hair, and wearing single-toothed wooden clogs called ''tengu-geta''.
 
====Name origin====
Shiftry may be a combination of ''shifty'' (deceitful) and ''tree''.
 
Dirteng may be a combination of ''dark'' or ''dirty'' and 天狗 ''{{wp|tengu}}''.
 
==In other languages==
