Shelmet is a Bug-type Pokémon. Shelmet to whom rainy season suits much better can be of use to you and for that you would have to know its Moveset, Stats, Weakness, Strength, Abilities among other details about the evolution.
The name Shelmet is a fusion of two words, ‘Shell’ which means hardcover, and ‘Helmet’ which stands for hard covering of the head. It has a physique that resembles a snail. It has an off-white color shell with blue spots horizontally aligned along the top rim of the shell. Its shell looks similar to a knight’s head armor or helmet, with a snail-like shell attached at the back of it. It has a pink color body with a long snout resembling a human lip. Green spots flanks with its sizable black eyes, this Pokémon has two small projections from underneath its shell serving as its legs.
Shelmet is capable of oozing a fluid that is poisonous, and sticky. Whenever it is attacked by an opponent it closes its shell to defend itself. However, this tactic doesn’t work when its opponent is Karrablast, as Karrablast is known to spit strong acid that can melt Shelmet’s shell. For some unknown reasons, Shelmet and Karrablast are known to evolve when electric energy passes through them. This Pokémon is also known as the ‘Snail Pokémon’. It is introduced in Generation 5.
