When attacked, it defends itself by closing the lid of its shell. It can spit a sticky, poisonous liquid.

Shelmet and Karrablast have a new way of evolving; Shelmet evolves into Accelgor when traded with Karrablast, while Karrablast evolves into Escavalier. Though Shelmet looks more like Escavalier and Karrablast looks more like Accelgor.
I like how its lips look like it’s sucking, or at least it’s puckered up. Shelmet is the first snail Pokemon that’s actually Bug type.
Stat-wise, it has good Defense and Sp Defense, but not great Attack stats.
