Shedinja itself is a pretty weird Pokemon. It only has 1 HP, but (thanks to it's Characteristic- Wonder Guard) only attacks that are Super Effective against it will harm it. This means that unless it is against a Pokemon that knows a Fire, Flying, Rock, Ground or Dark move it is invincible, which depending on the Opponents Pokemon, could be pretty useful in your team, providing you return it at the right times.
Shedinja is the evolve of Nincada. What? You scream. But my Nincada (if you bothered you bothered to train one up) evolved into a Ninjask! How can I get a Shedinja now?
The answer is to train up a new Nincada. Make sure that you only have 5 or less Pokemon in your party and a Pokeball of some kind in your backpack. Then train your Nincada up to Level 20, and it will evolve into Ninjask. But what's this? Something has filled the empty space in my party! Why, it's a Shedinja!
Shedinja appears when you evolve Nincada into Ninjask, providing that there is a Pokeball of some sort in your backpack and a space in your party, you will get Shedinja. The way the Pokedex explains this is that when Nincada evolves into Ninjask, it leaves it's original shell behind. This shell is supposed to contain some sort of ghost, which is why Shedinja is part Ghost type. Yes its unethical, no it doesn't make any sense, but trust me, it works.
Thanks to Typhlosion for this!
