Nincada evolves at level 20.
Normally when Nincada reaches level 20 it evolves into Ninjask. To get Nincada to evolve into both Shedinja and Ninjask you need to have a free space in your party and one pokeball of the kind that was used to catch the Nincada. Raise the Nincada to level 20 and let it evolve. After the evolution there will be a Shedinja in the empty space in your party.


Nincada is found in the grass between Verdanturf Town and Rustboro City (Route 116).
