Continuing the tradition of dual Ghost-types with unique typing,Frillish andJellicent are the first and only Water/Ghost types in Pokemon history. Each has two distinct forms, with color schemes reminiscent ofShellosandGastrodonin generation four,butFrillish and Jellicent's forms are determined by gender rather than locale. Their jellyfish-like appearance my look non-threatening, but just like real jellyfish they can pack a serious sting.

Both of their regular abilities are formidable, and Cursed Body is new, so it's definitely worth trying out %26ndash; with a 30% chance of disabling any attack used against it, it definitely has the potential to be annoying. They both only learn special attacks via level up, so it's easy to stick to what they're good at. New move Boiling Water (TM55) is a good choice because it takes advantage of their special attack and adds the possibility of inflicting a burn.

Life is nature's way of keeping meat fresh.
