Ninjask is a cicada-like Pokémon with two sets of wings. Its body is predominantly black, with yellow and gray highlights. The majority of its head is yellow, but it has a thick black ring between its flashing red eyes. Between two pointed crests on the sides of its skull, the band extends into a circular design on its forehead. The underside of its skull is gray and segmented, giving it the appearance of a veil. A patch of black with a length of yellow on its back is formed like an upside-down letter Y. The majority of its carapace and abdomen are black, however there is a golden ring towards the tip. Its gray insectoid limbs protrude from its chest and contain little, yellow claws that are normally turned inward. A comparable set of rear legs exists. It has broad, veined wings with triangular crimson tips.

Ninjask is a speedy Pokémon that is supposed to be able to avoid any assault and was formerly thought to be invisible owing to its speed. If it is not properly taught, it will refuse to follow its Trainer and will scream out loudly. As a result, it is supposed to test the Trainer’s talents. Hearing its piercing screams over an extended period of time causes a headache. It dwells in tropical and temperate woodlands, where it gathers to feed on tree sap.
