In the East Sea form, the underside is green and its shell is blue. The shell has two flap-like protrusions. These flaps are lined in yellow. On its head are two white-tipped knobs resembling horns that extend away from its face.
 
ShellosThe andNurse itsJoy evolutionfeatured {{pin ''[[DP136|Gastrodon}}Gateway areto examplesRuin!]]'' ofrevealed [[Mt. Coronet]]'s formation led to the {{wp|allopatric speciation}} event, thoughwith the original population of Shellos being separated into two. As a result, Shellos' color and other physical differences began to vary due to environmental differences and population isolation over time. The two forms are still able to interbreed; (the child takes the mother's form or the father's if bred with a {{p|Ditto}}). If it is pushed or squeezed, a mysterious purple fluid will ooze out of its body. In the anime, West Sea Shellos can extend their necks to incredible lengths. It is unknown if the East Sea form can do this as well. Shellos live along the sea shore.

* According to an interview in [[Nintendo Power]] with [[Ken Sugimori]], Shellos and {{p|Gastrodon}} were [[Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire beta|originally]] intended for {{game|Ruby and Sapphire|s}}, but were not implemented due to time constraints.
* Both Shellos and Gastrodon have [[Pokémon Diamond and Pearl beta|early]] back sprites that can be found in the game data for {{game|Diamond and Pearl|s}}; however, there are no front sprites for these forms.
* In {{game|Diamond and Pearl|s}}, no in-game Trainer uses East Sea Shellos in battle, even on the east side of [[Mt. Coronet]]. This is not the case in {{game|Platinum}}.
* Shellos's English Pokédex entry for {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}} has the fewest words of any Pokédex entry in the [[core series]] games, with nine.
* Prior to Generation VI, Shellos's body style was [[File:Body14.png]].
 
====Name origin====
Shellos may be a combination of ''shell'' and ''loss'' or ''lost'' (referring to its lack of a shell), or the German suffix ''-los'' (-less).
 
Karanakushi is a combination of 殻 ''kara'' (shell) and 無くした ''nakushita'' (to have lost) or 無し ''nashi'' (without).
