Shuckle (Japanese: ツボツボ Tsubotsubo) is a dual-type Bug/Rock Pokémon introduced in Generation II.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

Biology

Shuckle in its shell

Shuckle is a Pokémon that resembles a small turtle. Its body is yellow and appears soft. Until they are in use, Shuckle's limbs appear limp. It is encased in a very hard red shell that has many holes in it. The holes in its shell are rimmed with white. Rather than actively hunting and foraging for food like most other Pokémon, it collects Berries and stores them in its shell. The Berries inside are liquefied and fermented while they decompose by Shuckle's digestive juices, which it then consumes. Its digestive juices are also used to dissolve rocks so Shuckle can hide under them. It can be found in the mountains.

Trivia

Origin

Shuckle seems to be based on an endolith, an organism that lives inside porous rocks or animal shells – in particular, given its category, the Mold Pokémon, Shuckle may be based on a fungus or mold variety of endolith. Its shell, Bug type, and some of its names suggest it is also based on barnacles. It may also be inspired on scale insects—small, shelled parasites that produce a sweet fluid called honeydew that attracts other insects. It could also be seen as a reference to food fermentation process, with its Rock type alluding to the pottery used to store and ferment aliments in some cultures, and its Pokémon category referring to some fungi used in cultured foods.

Shuckle may also have been based on certain varieties of mollusk, as it shares some characteristics with them, including the shell, the muscular but limp-seeming feet, the use of acids to receive food or to break down obstacles, the liking for fermented foods, and living close to the water. It also seems be based on turtles or tortoises appearance-wise. Its worm-like aspect may also take inspiration from a nematode.

Name origin

Shuckle may be a combination of shuck (a husk or pod) and barnacle or turtle.

Tsubotsubo may derive from 壷 tsubo (jar) and 富士壺 fujitsubo (barnacle).
