Shellos (Japanese: カラナクシ Karanakushi) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon.

It evolves into Gastrodon starting at level 30.

Shellos have two different appearances: West Sea (pink) and East Sea (blue), found on the respective sides of the Sinnoh region. Due to this, there is a myth that the Sinnoh region was once split in two.

Biology

Physiology

Shellos are slug-like Pokémon. Both forms have yellow lining around their eyes, mouth and back.

In the West Sea form, the underside is white, its back is pink in color and has small spike-like protrusions on it. On its head is a ring of pink fleshy knobs arranged like a flower.

In the East Sea form, the underside is green, its back is blue and has two flap-like protrusions. These flaps are lined in yellow. On its head are two white-tipped knobs resembling horns.

Shellos and its evolution Gastrodon are examples of allopatric speciation, though the two forms are still able to interbreed (the child takes the mother's form).

It is shown in the anime that Shellos can extend their necks to incredible lengths. This has only been seen in the West Sea form. It is unknown if the East Sea form can do this as well, but it is most likely able to.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Shellos, as a Template:Type2 Pokémon, is capable of using moves of the said type, such as Rain Dance and Muddy Water. Although not yet a Template:Type2, Shellos is capable of using several Ground-type moves involving mud, such as Mud Sport, Mud Bomb, and, if Water-type, the aforementioned Muddy Water. Shellos is also able to use Recover.

Behavior

Habitat

Shellos live along the sea shore.

Trivia

  • When Serebii.net revealed Shellos's English name, the site originally interpreted its name as "Snelios" or "Shelios" due to poor image quality.
  • Upon Shellos' discovery in the prerelease phase of Diamond and Pearl, fans thought it was a pre-evolution for Lapras; this is due to the fact that the East Sea variation was seen first.
  • According to an interview in Nintendo Power, Shellos and Gastrodon were originally designed for Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire Versions, but were not implemented in the final design.
    • Both Shellos and Gastrodon have a beta back sprite in the game data; however, there are no front sprites for these forms, and neither can be captured in this form.
    • These beta forms both are similar to the pink West Sea variations of Shellos and Gastrodon, possibly meaning that they were developed from the Generation III versions.
  • In Diamond and Pearl, no in-game trainer uses East Sea Shellos in battle, even if the Trainer's current location is east of Mt. Coronet. This changes in Platinum where all trainers east of Mt. Coronet may have the eastern variety.
  • Shellos's Pokédex color is purple, which is probably due to the fact that pink (the color of the West Sea Shellos) mixed with blue (the color of the East Sea Shellos) would make a shade of light purple.
  • No matter where a Shellos egg is hatched in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver Versions it will always hatch as a West Sea Shellos

Origin

Shellos is based on a sea slug.

Name origin

Its English name appears to be a pun on Shell and the suffix -less, as Shellos does not have a shell. Its Japanese name is a combination of 殻 kara, shell, and 無くした nakushita, to have lost, or 無し nashi, without.

In other languages

  • German: Schalellos - From schalenlos (without a shell).
  • French: Sancoki - From sans coquille (without a shell).
  • Korean: 깝질무 Kkap-Jil-Moo - Includes 껍질 kkapjil (shell).
