==Trivia==
[[File:Slowking evolution anime.png|thumb|Shellder and Slowpoke evolving into Slowking in ''[[EP260|A Crowning Achievement]]'']]
* In the {{pkmn|anime}}, Shellder is required to [[Evolution|evolve]] Slowpoke into Slowbro or Slowking. Shellder clamps onto a Slowpoke's tail to evolve into Slowbro, or onto its head while wearing the [[King's Rock]] to evolve into a Slowking. Even though Shellder changes form drastically when it bonds with Slowpoke to evolve (see above), it is not considered an evolution in and of itself.
* In ''[[EP066|The Evolution Solution]]'', it is revealed that Shellder is still capable of speech as the shell of a Slowbro.
* Shellder were shown to be capable of floating through the air in {{g|Snap}}, a trait that has been seen in no other media.
* Shellder and {{p|Cloyster}} share their {{pkmn|category}} name with {{p|Clamperl}}. They are all known as the Bivalve Pokémon.
* Shellder can be seen as a counterpart to {{p|Staryu}}. Both are Water-types in the {{OBP|Water 3|Egg Group}} [[Egg Group]], both evolve with a [[Water Stone]], and both gain a second type upon evolution. Cloyster is seen as a slow defensive Pokémon, while Starmie is seen as a fast attacking Pokémon; and StaryuShellder is exclusive to Fire Red and Y, while ShellderStaryu is exclusive to Leaf Green and X.
