Flavor Info

Pokédex Entries

Ponderan always sit perfectly still, no matter what is going on around them, so that they can concentrate on their deepest thoughts. Even though they look like statues they can move their arms and upper bodies, but they never do so unless they absolutely must.


Ponderan's immobile bases and the fact that they are constantly lost in thought make them slow to respond to battle situations. When they finally decide they are ready to act, however, their deep concentration and careful analysis allow them to attack with devastating power.

Name Origin

ponder + Auguste Rodin, sculptor of "The Thinker"
