If you are a fan of Pokémon games, you might be interested in the latest entry into the series, Pokemon Nihilego Go. It is a dual-type Pokemon and is inspired by the concept of invasive species. As a parasite, Nihilego can merge with its host and set entry hazards for other Pokemon. Let’s take a look at some of the features that make this Pokemon great!
Nihilego is a dual-type
Although this dual-type Pokemon has a weak set of weaknesses, it still has many great traits that help it be a great attacker. Despite its double weakness to Ground and Psychic, Nihilego also has one weak spot: Steel. Nonetheless, Nihilego’s speed and Beast Boost make it one of the best Pokemon to use against weaker opponents. Here are some tips for using Nihilego in competitive play.
Protect: This move helps Nihilego pressurize stallbreakers outside of status and Mega Altaria. It also scouts for opponents and gives it an extra turn of recovery from Black Sludge. Taking advantage of Stealth Rock is also a good idea, as it prevents opponents from using the Choice item. Protect also allows Nihilego to avoid being trapped by a Poké Ball or Black Sludge, which can greatly reduce its health.
It is a parasite
You have probably heard of the parasite Nihilego in Pokemon Nihilego Go, and maybe you’ve been wondering if it exists in real life. While Nihilego is very different from other creatures, it still exhibits the traits of a parasite. The parasite can influence its host, and will often choose particular hosts if they will feed on them. So, how does this parasite operate?
It appears to be a parasite that lives inside people and other Pokemon. It has shiny and normal sprites and event-specific ones. There may also be unreleased versions of the parasite, as well as different genders. Despite being a parasite, Nihilego is the main antagonist of Pokemon Nihilego Go. Here are some interesting facts about Nihilego:
It can merge with a host
The newest addition to the Pokémon Go series is the symbiotic monster Pokemon Nihilego, which can merge with a host physically or influence the host’s behavior. Nihilego is a parasitic creature that latches on to a host’s head and injects it with a neurotoxin that changes its thoughts. This toxin wears down the host’s mental inhibitions and increases their feelings of excitement and fear. It is also capable of influencing other Pokemons to perform similar actions. Whether or not you are willing to merge with Nihilego, the outcome is always unpredictable.
Once it merges with a host, Nihilego becomes visible in the bell. Its tentacles are longer, with deep black spots and diamond-shaped interiors. The four tentacles are connected to a central body by frilly white structures with four spines. The size and shape of the bell and Nihilego’s form vary from host to host.
It can set entry hazards
A diverse Pokemon with the ability to set entry hazards and attack with powerful special moves, Nihilego is an excellent choice for teams. This ground-type Pokemon’s STAB moves enable it to hit common entry hazard counters and it is particularly effective with Specs. Nihilego shares weaknesses with other Poison-type Pokemon, which make it a good choice for team composition.
Some Defoggers are vulnerable to Nihilego’s Stealth Rock, which can weaken them and increase their Speed. Another powerful move is the Power Gem, which hits neutral targets with a high damage output. Nihilego also has excellent partner potential with Skarmory, which checks Zarude and Primarina. Black Sludge also mitigates entry hazards and chip damage from Nihilego Go.
It is an Ultra Beast
If you’ve been playing Pokemon GO, you’ve most likely heard about Ultra Beasts. These are extradimensional Pokemon that show up via the game’s Ultra Wormholes. Once you’ve passed through one, you’ll be drawn to it. The good news is, the game is adding more of these creatures. In the meantime, you can still catch the popular Rock/Poison Pokemon.
In the game, the Nihilego resembles a jellyfish. Its bell is a translucent semi-translucent color surrounded by wavy blue rims. Its tentacles resemble a jellyfish and make it look humanoid. The tentacles are a little longer than the body itself, but they make up the legs of a humanoid.
