Spheal (Japanese: タマザラシ Tamazarashi) is a dual-type Ice/Water Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

It evolves into Sealeo starting at level 32, which evolves into Walrein starting at level 44.

Biology

Spheal is a chubby, spherical, seal-like Pokémon with a short, flat tail. Its plushy fur is light blue with several white spots of various sizes on its back. This covering of fluffy fur protects Spheal from the cold. It has black, circular eyes, small tusks protruding from its upper jaw, and small, rounded ears. Its stubby flippers and its underside are both beige. When happy or cheerful, such as when eating in a group, this Pokémon will clap its fins. Because its body is poorly shaped for swimming and can only walk slowly, it moves primarily by rolling across ice floes. It can even coat itself in ice while rolling to use its former signature move, Ice Ball. This Pokémon lives in and around the sea.

Pokédex entries

This Pokémon was unavailable prior to Generation III.
Generation III
Ruby Spheal is much faster rolling than walking to get around. When groups of this Pokémon eat, they all clap at once to show their pleasure. Because of this, their mealtimes are noisy.
Sapphire Spheal always travels by rolling around on its ball-like body. When the season for ice floes arrives, this Pokémon can be seen rolling about on ice and crossing the sea.
Emerald It is completely covered with plushy fur. As a result, it never feels the cold even when it is rolling about on ice floes or diving in the sea.
FireRed Its body is covered in fluffy fur. The fur keeps it from feeling cold while it is rolling on ice.
