Spinda using Teeter Dance by DragonchildX

 


Teeter Dance

“The user performs a wobbly dance that confuses the Pokémon around it.”

Teeter Dance is a Normal-type move that doesn’t deal any damage but instead confuses any and all Pokemon adjacent to the user. It was first introduced in Hoenn and has an accuracy of 100%.

Before Generation V, it was the signature move of Spinda.  Since then, male Spinda can pass down the move to other Pokémon species in its egg group.

Attract

“Infatuates target, making it harder for them to attack foes of the opposite gender. “

Attract is a non-damaging Normal-Type move introduced in Generation II. It is capable of infatuating the target of the opposite gender of the attacker, making it harder for the target to hit the attacker.

Many female and Fairy-Type Pokemon come equipped with this move already; and it proves quite effective in frustrating players trying to get their best Pokemon to attack when they are being thwarted by “The Power of Love.” Spinda can learn attract by TM.

 


#327 Spinda

“Its steps are shaky and stumbling. Walking for a long time makes it feel sick.”

Spinda is a Normal-type Pokemon with a 50% chance of being male or female. It is based off a panda and no two Spinda’s spots are the same, there are over 4 billion spot variations so the chance of seeing two identical Spinda is extremely unlikely.

It doesn’t evolve into any other Pokemon and can be found residing in the mountains. Spinda often thinks it’s walking in a straight line but it can always be found wobbling and spinning around, which confuses opponents and makes them difficult to land an attack. Teeter Dance was originally Spinda’s signature move due to it’s wobbly movement.

Spinda made it’s first anime appearance in an episode where Ash and the others were trying to help a girl named Claire find a Spinda with a heart-shaped spot on its forehead. In the Pokemon Adventures manga the gym leader, Norman also owns a Spinda that he uses with a Slaking and switches their abilities using the Skill Swap ability.
