Shuckle (Japanese: ツボツボ Tsubotsubo) is a dual-type Bug/Rock Pokémon.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

Biology

Physiology

Being a mold Pokémon, Shuckle is encased in a very hard red shell that has many holes in it. Its body inside the shell is yellow and presumably very soft due to very limp muscles. Rather then actively hunting and foraging for food like most other Pokémon, it tends to collect berries and store them in its shell. The berries inside are liquefied and fermented by the Shuckle's digestive juices, which are then consumed by the Shuckle. These juices are also used to dissolve rocks for the Shuckle to hide under.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

The player could attach an Oran Berry (Berry in Generation II) to Shuckle. Over time, the Berry would become Berry Juice. If left attached to Shuckle even longer, it would become a Rare Candy.

Behavior

Habitat

Shuckle tend to hide under rocks and fallen logs for long periods of time.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

A Shuckle was one of the residents of Millennium Town in Pikachu & Pichu.

In A Better Pill to Swallow, an old man was using the Berry Juice that Shuckle makes to create medicine. One of the Shuckle that he befriended was a purple Shuckle whose Berry Juice attracted Pokémon to anyone who drank it. Because of this, Team Rocket made it their mission to steal it.

Butch's Shuckle debuted in Sleight of Sand!.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Special manga

Shuckle's major appearance is in Template:PSV, under the control of Orm. Orm manages to use one Shuckle to control a huge swarm of Shuckle and hold Green down, but once Blue takes out the leader Shuckle, the entire group formation falls apart.

Trivia

  • Shuckle has the highest Defense and Special Defense stats of any Pokémon, with a max of 614 in them with beneficial natures (which are also the highest non-HP stats in existence).
    • After using Power Trick, Shuckle has the highest Attack of any Pokémon with a max of 614 in it with beneficial natures (To compare, Deoxys's Attack form's maximum Attack stat is "only" 504.)
  • Shuckle couldn't learn any Template:Type2 moves before Pokémon Platinum, despite having Bug as its primary type.
  • Shuckle, along with Munchlax, in terms of base stats, is the slowest non-glitched Pokémon of all.
  • Shuckle, along with Feebas, has the lowest Special Attack of all Pokémon.
  • Shuckle is the only Pokémon with a function that is not an ability (changing of Oran Berry to Berry Juice then finally into a Rare Candy.)
  • Although the circumstances would be nearly impossible, a level 100 Shuckle can potentially deal the most damage in one single attack through the use of numerous stat boosters, held item, Power Trick, a Skill Swap to Huge Power or Pure Power, and the Defense Curl/Rollout combo. On the 5th impact of Rollout, if used against a level 1 Yanma, it can deal over 104,000,000 damage.

Origin

Shuckle seems to be based on an endolith, an organism that lives inside porous rocks or animal shells. Fungi, also known as mold, are common endoliths. This explains why Shuckle is the mold Pokémon.

It may also be based on scale insects – small, shelled parasites that produce a sweet fluid called honeydew that attracts other insects.

Name origin

Shuckle may be derived from shuck, to remove from a husk or pod. Its Japanese name is a repetition of 壷 tsubo, jar, or 富士壺 fujitsubo, barnacle.

In other languages

  • German: Pottrott - from Pott, a colloquial word for jar, and verrotten (to rot) referring to the fermentation of berries in it's shell.
  • French: Caratroc - From carapace and troc, refering to its ability of transforming berries into berry juice.
  • Korean: 단단지 Dandanji
