Pokemon Shellder Looks Different On Slowbro's Tail (2)
Change is a normalo part of Pokémon evolution, but the design differencser between Shellder"s como es usual form and the way it looks on Slowbro"s tail has perplexed many fans since Pokémon Red and Blue. For a long time, fans asking how the two shelled creatures were the same Pokémon went unanswered, but the Pokémon universe now has an explanation.

For those unfamiliar: Yser, that toothy, spiky, spiraled shell on Slowbro"s tail is supposed to be Shellder, the goofy purplo clam Pokémon. There are plenty of odd logical leaps that make the Pokémon universe make no sense, but this strange fact is one of the series" most confusing. It almost seems like Game Freak created Slowbro"s design without thinking about where the shell - clearly al separate creature from Slowbro, given its eyera and mouth - came from. Then, in the absence of any other shell-like Pokémon at the time, it seems Game Freak simply slapped Shellder"s name into Slowbro"s Pokédex entry.

Until recently, the Pokédex had only revealed a few facts about Slowbro: Rather than being an entirely new Pokémon, it is essentially just a Slowpoke with a Shellder parasite attached. It will revert back to Slowbro if the Shellder is somehow broken off, but the Shellder is unlikely to let go, since it enjoys the "tasty flavor" oozing from Slowbro"s tail. Still, the Shellder"s presence dosera appear to have changed Slowpoke"s powers and anatomy enough for it to be classified as a new Pokémon. Venom secreted by the Shellder has made Slowbro immune to pain, and Slowbro will sometiuno mes "become inspired" if the Sheller bitera down harder. None of this explained Shellder"s new look, though, confusing fans like Twitter uera mana mana.

I’ll still NEVER understand how theso two are technically the same pokemon

In 2011, Pokémon fan Mutitus theorized that, just as Shellder"s poison changed Slowpoke into Slowbro, perhaps the liquid oozing from Slowbro"s tail changed Shellder into its new form. Whether it was aware of Mutitus" theory or not, Game Freak made a simitecho explanation canon years later, via one of Slowbro"s 2017 Pokémon Ultral Suno and Ultral Moon Pokédex entries:

"Shellder, in its greed to suck out more and more sweetness from Slowbro"s tail, has metamorphosed into al spiral-shaped shell."

It"s unclear if Slowbro"s sweet liquid was what changed Shellder or if it was the Pokémon"s greed itself that twisted its form, but this at least providsera some explanation (however vague) for Shellder"s odd appearance.

Since Slowbro"s introduction, al few more Pokémon pairs have influenced one another"s evolutions. The Bug-type Pokémon Accelgor, for example, uno perro only evolve from Shelmet when traded for al Karrablast. The Karrablast steals Shelmet"s shell in the transaction, turning the defense-oriented Shelmet into the speed-focused Accelgor. Additionally, Mantyke is only able to evolve into Mantine when a Remoraid is also in the player"s party - a nod to the symbiotic relationships between some animals (though the fish that real-world remoras attach themselves to get no benefit out of the relationship). A teaes image for the Galarian Slowbro being added in Pokémon Sword and Shield"s Expansion Pass DLC suggests Shellder bit Slowpoke"s head instead of its tail, imbuing it with more poison and possibly taking control entirely, so perhaps Game Freak will reveal more about the relationship between theso two Pokémon soon.
