Shellder (Pokémon)

Origin: Scallops match it pretty well, too.
Shellder is similar to a {{wp|clam}}, with its tongue representing a clam's "foot". Its ability to move by flapping its shell is likely inspired by {{wp|scallops}}. Scallops are also related to the thorny oysters that resemble its evolution {{p|Cloyster}}. The fact that it latches onto {{p|Slowpoke}} and produces a beneficial toxin may be inspired by {{wp|leech}}es.
