Zoey's Gastrodon (Japanese: ノゾミのトリトドン Nozomi's Tritodon) is a Pokémon owned by Zoey. It appears to be one of her signature Pokémon, along with Glameow.


Gastrodon and Zoey

Zoey caught Gastrodon as a Shellos shortly after the events of Buizel Your Way Out Of This!. After failing to catch a wild Buizel that Dawn later caught, Zoey was revealed to have stayed in the area around the river to find another Water-type Pokémon, which turned out to be Shellos.

Shellos debuted 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.

Zoey used it in the first round of the Hearthome City Pokémon Contest in Dawn's Early Night!, where it teamed up with Glameow yet again in a Double Performance. The combination of their moves impressed the Contest Judges and placed Zoey among the eight hard-working Pokémon Coordinators that advanced to the Battle Stage.

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 Performance Stage of the Sinnoh 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 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 semifinals.

Personality and characteristics

As a Shellos, it was easily scared, as shown in its debut when Zoey introduced it to Ash and his friends. Shellos was particularly intimidated by Dawn's Buizel due to the way Buizel approached it. When performing, however, Shellos displays its confidence, showcasing its moves and skills in impressive ways.

It appears 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.

Description: Shellos extends its neck and uses Mud Bomb, shooting multiple blobs of mud into the air. Glameow follows up with Shock Wave, charging the Mud Bomb. Shellos finishes the appeal by using Hidden Power to destroy the charged mud balls, which results in a massive fireworks display that highlights the two Pokémon as they pose together. The combination was used to show Dawn how Double Performances work.

Description: Glameow jumps and uses Shadow Claw. Then Shellos uses Blizzard to add small snowballs to the Ghost-type attack, making it bigger and more effective while creating a visual contrast. Glameow proceeds with the attack, landing a hit that deals major damage and ends up knocking out its opponents. The combination was used during a Double Battle against Jessilina's Dustox and Seviper.
