Shuppet (Japanese: カゲボウズ Kagebouzu) is a Ghost-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

It evolves into Banette starting at level 37.

Biology

Shuppet is a spherical Pokémon that appears to be covered by a gray cloth. Black rings surround its multicolored eyes, which have light-blue sclerae, dark-blue irises, and yellow pupils. Occasionally, it will display a large, pink tongue. Extending from the top of its head is a long, pointed horn. The horn collects the negative emotions of people, on which this Pokémon feeds. The emotions it feeds on include anger, jealousy, and envy, so some people are grateful for its presence. A nocturnal Pokémon, it will appear in swarms beneath the eaves of houses with negative people. It is most commonly found in cities and other urban settings.

Major appearances

Shuppet debuted in Take This House and Shuppet. Max got lost in an abandoned mansion and befriended a Shuppet that was living there. Max allowed Shuppet to pull pranks to scare the others because he was angry with May.

In Fear Factor Phony, a Shuppet was living at an abandoned mining colony with other Ghost-type Pokémon. They could not stand the partying Psychic-type Pokémon in the nearby town, so they created a Haunter-like illusion to scare them away.

In PK15, a Shuppet was living in a spooky house.

In Zoroark: Master of Illusions, Grings Kodai's Shuppet would help him locate the Time Ripple by using Foresight.

In A Haunted House for Everyone!, Acerola used a Shuppet to reveal the Ghost-type Pokémon that appeared at the Pokémon School. It reappeared in Battle Royal 151!.
