Pokédex Description

Generation 1
Red, Blue

Its hard shell repels any kind of attack. It is vulnerable only when its shell is open.

Yellow

The shell can withstand any attack. However, when it is open, the tender body is exposed.

Generation 2
Gold

It swims facing backward by opening and closing its two-piece shell. It is surprisingly fast.

Silver

Grains of sand trapped in its shells mix with its body fluids to form beautiful pearls.

Crystal

Clamping on to an opponent reveals its vulnerable parts, so it uses this move only as a last resort.

Generation 3
Ruby, Sapphire

At night, this POKéMON uses its broad tongue to burrow a hole in the seafloor sand and then sleep in it. While it is sleeping, SHELLDER closes its shell, but leaves its tongue hanging out.

Emerald

At night, it burrows a hole in the seafloor with its broad tongue to make a place to sleep. While asleep, it closes its shell, but leaves its tongue hanging out.

FireRed

It is encased in a shell that is harder than diamond. Inside, however, it is surprisingly tender.

LeafGreen

Its hard shell repels any kind of attack. It is vulnerable only when its shell is open.

Generation 4
Diamond, Pearl, Platinum

It swims backward by opening and closing its two shells. Its large tongue is always kept hanging out.

HeartGold

It swims facing backward by opening and closing its two-piece shell. It is surprisingly fast.

SoulSilver

Grains of sand trapped in its shells mix with its body fluids to form beautiful pearls.

Generation 5
Black, White, Black 2, White 2

It swims backward by opening and closing its two shells. Its large tongue is always kept hanging out.

Generation 6
X

Its hard shell repels any kind of attack. It is vulnerable only when its shell is open.

Y

Clamping on to an opponent reveals its vulnerable parts, so it uses this move only as a last resort.

Omega Ruby, Alpha Sapphire

At night, this Pokémon uses its broad tongue to burrow a hole in the seafloor sand and then sleep in it. While it is sleeping, Shellder closes its shell, but leaves its tongue hanging out.

Generation 7
Moon

This Pokémon’s tongue is always hanging out. It uses its tongue with great dexterity to dig up sand from the seabed in its search for food.

Ultra Sun

The sand that accumulates inside its shell eventually becomes a pearl. But the pearl gets in the way, so it spits it out and discards it.
