Another misleadingly-designed Pokémon, Shellos is the spitting image of what you’d imagine a baby Lapras would look like, but, alas, it wasn’t meant to be. Besides a few interesting moves, the most interesting thing about Shellos is its regional variance. On the west side of Sinnoh, around where your quest begins, Shellos are pink, while the eastern variety are cuter and blue. Will future entries in the series have new varieties of Shelloses? Only time will tell.
