Well, when we talk about hunting, some Pokemon are challenging to catch than the other, and one of them is Shedinja. It is a Ghost-Bug type Pokemon, which first appeared in the Generation 3 Ruby and Sapphire for the Gameboy advance.


But before that, players are required to catch Nincada first, and it can be found on Route 5. However, the probability of spawn is only 5%. Players can also encounter Nincada in the wild during a sandstorm at West Lake Axewell or South Lake Miloch.


After catching the Nincada, players are required to level themselves up by engaging in battles or through XP candies from raids. Once your Nincada reaches level 20, you need to make space for it in a party and remove any other Pokemon.


After this, you can initiate the evolution, which will happen in order, and your Nincada will evolve in Ninjask. You must be wondering, where is your Shedinja, don’t worry as it will be there in the empty slot we made earlier. This ghost-type Pokemon is a favorite of many trainers as its Wonder Guard ability prevents it from taking any damage unless it is a super-effective move.


Similarly, many other Pokemon are tricky to evolve, and one of them is Applin. If you don’t know how to evolve Applin in the Pokemon Sword & Shield game, you can head here. You can also check the evolution trick for Eevee by heading here.
