From Smogon:

Fire / Flying / Dark / Ghost / Rock moves, non-Fighting / Normal attacks from a Mold Breaker Pokémon, Poison, Burn, Leech Seed, Confusion damage, Sandstorm, Hail, Spikes / Stealth Rock, Nightmare, Darkrai’s Bad Dreams, Life Orb recoil, Double-Edge recoil, Struggle, Struggle recoil, Destiny Bond, Perish Song, Aftermath, Rough Skin, Future Sight / Doom Desire, Ghost-type Curse, Jaboca/Rowap Berry recoil, and absorbing health against a Pokémon with Liquid Ooze.

In essence, we can consider that Shedinja has about 19 "weaknesses" (not counting the useless ones, like Future Sight).

The scary part is that there are 17 types in the game, but of course no pokemon is weak to all types; and most pokemon aren't OHKOed for sure by their weaknesses. Shedinja, on the other hand, has a whopping 19 weaknesses and they're all a OHKO.

Still feel like using Shedinja?

Aww Can't you use HP Up on it? that's sad. Now that 4th Gen is here some 3rd gen Pokemons are getting weaker :( that's very sad to know.

HP up wont work on it. Shedinja's always been that sad.

yeah but with a team of 6 shedinja with grudge you'd be surprised how many people run out of those moves and get beaten

Tyranitar, Hippowdon, Stealth Rock, a fire, dark, ghost, rock or (forgot the last type '-_-) attack, and your "team" is done.

Species clause wrecks that idea, as does the fact that Sheddy is slow as all buggery and isn't getting a Grudge off before it's fainted anyway.
