Shelmet (Japanese: チョボマキ Chobomaki) is a Bug-type Pokémon.

It evolves into Accelgor when traded for a Karrablast, which evolves into Escavalier simultaneously. Neither evolves if at least one holds an Everstone during the trade.

Biology

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.

Major appearances

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.

Trivia

  • Shelmet and Karrablast are the only Pokémon that have to be traded with a specific Pokémon to evolve, having to be traded with each other.
  • Although Escavalier gains a secondary Steel type from its armor, Shelmet is a pure Bug-type despite wearing the same armor.

Origin

Shelmet appears to be based on a combination of a giant tube worm, nautilus, or snail, and plate armor. The fact that it evolves when traded with Karrablast may be a reference to jousting.

Name origin

Shelmet is a combination of shell and helmet.

Chobomaki may be a combination of おちょぼ口 ochoboguchi (puckered-up mouth) and 巻き maki (to coil or roll).
