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

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.

Shield It has a strange physiology that responds to electricity. When together with Karrablast, Shelmet evolves for some reason.

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 snail, possibly a scaly-foot snail, whose shell's outer layer is made of iron compounds; and a close helmet. It also may also be based on a nautilus.

Karrablast and Shelmet may be a reference to coevolution, where the evolution of one species is influenced by changes in another species; in this case, the relationship between predator and prey.

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).
