Dronin is a dual-type Bug/Fighting Pokémon.

It evolves from male Combee starting at level 21 in the Giant Beehive.



Dronin is humanoid Pokémon resembling a samurai from Japanese folklore. Its most distinguishing figure is the "samurai hat" that adorns its head. Dronin's eyes are a deep scarlet and its facial expression is always seen as a scowl despite its mood. Its body is very round in shape and covered in black & yellow stripes. Its arms are shaped like honeycombs. On its arms are a large blade thats about a foot long. Its lower body is completely black and its feet are also shaped like honeycombs.

Gender DifferencesEdit

Dronin is a male-only species. Its female counterpart is Vespiquen.

Special AbilitiesEdit

Unlike its counterpart, Dronin is fast and physically powerful. It primarily uses its large blades for battle. It can also control Combee to a certain degree but not as well as Vespiquen.


Dronin will do whatever possible to protect its queen and her hive. The energy found in Giant Beehive is said to drive male Combee mad and cause their evolution. This "insanity" of sorts makes it very unpredictable in battle. When trained by an experienced trainer, it becomes a fierce competitor and treats its trainer as its Queen.


Dronin are rarely found in the wild. They are primarily found in the Giant Beehive.

Game DataEdit
