Shelmet (Japanese: チョボマキ Chobomaki) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon.

It evolves into Accelgor when traded for a Karrablast. Neither evolves if at least one holds an Everstone during the trade.

Biology

Physiology

Shelmet is a bivalve or snail-like Pokémon, with a gray shell much like that of a knight’s visor although it has a more conventionally snail-like swirl of its shell further back. Shelmet’s shell has protrusions on the underside, which it apparently uses as legs. Its inner body is pink with a long, puckered mouth, and green markings below its eyes.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

It closes the lid on its helmet-like shell as a defensive tactic, and can spit a poisonous sticky fluid. For some reason, Shelmet evolve when put near an electric line with Karrablast.

Trivia

  • Shelmet and Karrablast are the only Pokémon that have to be traded with a specific Pokémon to evolve, having to be traded with each other.
  • Although Escavalier gains a secondary Steel typing from its armor, Shelmet is a pure Bug-type despite wearing the same armor.

Origin

Shelmet appears to be based on a combination of a giant tube worm, nautilus, or snail, and plate armor. The fact that it evolves when traded with Karrablast may be a reference to jousting.

Name origin

Shelmet seems to be a portmanteau of shell and helmet. It could also be a reference to the pharase "well met". Its Japanese name is likely a combination of おちょぼ口 ochoboguchi, puckered-up mouth, and 巻き maki, to coil, to roll.
