Accelgor (Japanese: アギルダー Agilder) is a Bug-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

It evolves from Shelmet when traded for a Karrablast, a Pokémon that evolves into Escavalier simultaneously. Neither evolves if at least one holds an Everstone during the trade.

Biology

Accelgor is a Pokémon which has a large pink head reminiscent of a helmet that is curled in the back. Green stripes run from its eyes to the top of its head, and there is a black star-like marking or hole on the front. Its eyes are hidden in a shadowed crevice in its head. The rest of its body is covered by a blue, cloth-like membrane, which keeps Accelgor from dehydrating, with ribbon-like extensions at the top of its back. Its arms, when crossed, portray an aggressive mood.

It is a very fast Pokémon; it can attack using ways similar to ninjas, including with its current signature move Water Shuriken. It lives in moist habitats like bogs and swamps. Accelgor is often featured as a main character in movies or comics to increase the popularity of these products. Accelgor's pouting expression and crossed arms are due to it being miserable over having lost its shell.[1]

Name origin

Accelgor may be a combination of accelerate and escargot (French for snail).

Agilder may be a combination of agile and rider.
