Zoey's Gastrodon (Japanese: ノゾミのトリトドン Nozomi's Tritodon) is a Pokémon owned by Zoey in the anime. It is used in many of her Contests.


Zoey caught Gastrodon as a Shellos shortly after the events of Buizel Your Way Out of This. After failing to capture a wild Buizel that Dawn later caught, she stayed in the area around the river to find another Water-type Pokémon. Shellos then made its first appearance in A Stand-Up Sit-Down! where it helped its Trainer teach Dawn about Double Performances in preparation for the Hearthome Contest, it created a stunning combination with its own Mud Bomb attack and Glameow's Shock Wave. The two later teamed up for Zoey's battle with Jessilina. Their combinations were far better than Seviper's and Dustox's and they won the match.

As a Shellos

Zoey used it in the first round of the Hearthome City Pokémon Contest in Dawn's Early Night, it again teamed up with Glameow in a Double Performance and easily got her through to the second round.

It later made a short appearance in Pruning a Passel of Pals! beating a Mareep in the Wallace Cup allowing Zoey to move on to the next round. In Playing the Leveling Field! it was revealed that Shellos helped win Zoey her third Ribbon.

In Last Call, First Round!, it was revealed to have evolved into a Gastrodon, Zoey used it in the appeal round of the Grand Festival with Lumineon where they performed with their Water Pulse and Aqua Ring attacks to give a unique appeal. After making it through the appeal round, the two Pokémon were used in Zoey's first round battle where once again they won. It was used once again in the event with Glameow to secure Zoey's place in the semi-finals.

Personality and characteristics

Zoey and Gastrodon

Gastrodon seems to be Zoey's second most used Pokémon in a similar way to Nando's Kricketune, even being stated by Brock in Double-Time Battle Training! that it is one of her most reliable Pokémon.

Moves Improvised

Mud Bomb-Shock Wave combination
  • Mud Bomb-Shock Wave combination Zoey had her Shellos fire a Mud Bomb into the air, which Glameow used Shock Wave on, dotting up Shellos's attack.
  • Shadow Claw-Blizzard combination Zoey had her Glameow use Shadow Claw, and then Shellos would use Blizzard on the Shadow Claw, making it look like the blizzard was coming out of Glameow's paw, making it a much more powerful and beautiful attack.
