Shelmet is a bivalve or snail-like Pokémon. Its gray shell resembles a knight’s visor, with a coiling spiral of its shell further back. The shell has protrusions on the underside, which it apparently uses as legs. Its inner body is pink with a long, puckered mouth, and green markings below its eyes. It closes the lid on its helmet-like shell as a defensive tactic, and can spit a poisonous sticky fluid. It thrives in moist habitats like bogs and swamps.
In the animeEdit
Shelmet debuted in Enter Elesa, Electrifying Gym Leader! under the ownership of Bianca. She used it in her Gym battle with Elesa. However, it was quickly defeated by Elesa's Zebstrika. It later reappeared in Evolution Exchange Excitement!, where it was traded with Professor Juniper for her Karrablast, causing it to evolve.
