Herdier #507


Herdier is a canine Pokémon with a light brown coat and a small muzzle. It has long, cream fur on its face that creates a mustache and a three-pointed crest. It has huge and perked ears and a dark nose. It has a short tail and shaggy dark blue hair covering its body. This thick, rough fur protects Herdier against assaults. It has four short legs and three toes. Pokédex 3D Pro shows that each paw has a dark blue paw pad.

Herdier is a highly loyal, clever, and helpful Pokémon that will assist its Trainer in raising other Pokémon. It will, however, not obey anybody who disrespects it. It has long aided Trainers. Based on what was found on cave walls, Herdier is said to have been the first Pokémon to be paired with humans. Its thick hair keeps growing indefinitely. Herider’s fur gets more springy and impenetrable as he develops. Any claws or fangs that tried to pierce its fur would just bounce off. However, because to the high expense of grooming Herider’s thick hair, he is difficult to teach.
