Trivia

  • n the anime, Shellder is required to evolve Slowpoke into Slowbro or Slowking. Shellder clamps onto a Slowpoke's tail to evolve into Slowbro, or onto its head while wearing the King's Rock to evolve into a Slowking. Even though Shellder changes form drastically when it bonds with Slowpoke to evolve (see above), it is not considered an evolution in and of itself.
  • In the episode The Evolution Solution, it is revealed that Shellder is still capable of speech as the shell of a Slowbro.
  • Shellder were shown to be capable of floating through the air in Pokémon Snap, a trait that has been seen in no other media.
  • Shellder and Cloyster share their category name with Clamperl. They are all known as the Bivalve Pokémon.

Origin

Shellder is similar to the clam, with its tongue representing a clam's "foot."
