Shell Armor (Japanese: シェルアーマー Shell Armor) is an Ability introduced in Generation III.
Shell Armor prevents Pokémon from receiving a critical hit, even if they would usually always land one such as with Frost Breath, Storm Throw, Wicked Blow, Surging Strikes, or with Merciless (if the target is poisoned).
