Talk:Shelmet (Pokémon)

From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.

Could it be possible that Chobomaki and Kaburumo are based on the Western stories of "A Knight's Tale" from Chaucer's "The Canterbury Tales" and possibly the Prince and the Pauper? Both tales are involve individuals from the medieval era who switch roles; This make more sense with "The Knight's Tale" in that a peasant dons the armor of a knight in order to join a jousting tournament, which seems similar to how Kaburumo takes up Chobomaki's "armor" and becomes the calvary pokemon Shubarugo. Any thoughts on if this seems relevant? --Oleandervine 01:03, 16 November 2010 (UTC)

Not really since the armor was stolen....Ataro 01:06, 16 November 2010 (UTC)


Are we sure that Shelmet gives its armor to Karrablast and then it (K) evolves into Escavalier and not just becoming vestigial? Basically, do we know if Shelmet is giving its armor or just 'hiding' it? No one on the corner got swagga like Mpcamel1729...modified from Paper Planes by M.I.A. 14:21, 18 December 2011 (UTC)

Read Escavalier's Pokédex entry:
"These Pokémon evolve by wearing the shell covering of a Shelmet. The steel armor protects their whole body."
