#781 Dhelmise

Swinging its massive anchor, it can KO Wailord in a single blow. What appears to be green seaweed is actually its body.

Dhelmise is one of the few Pokemon not announced prior to the release of Sun/Moon. It can be found by fishing in bubbling spot from the Seafolk Village on Poniponi island. It’s type of Ghost/Grass makes it the 6th Pokemon with that type combination (we went from 0 to 6 in 2 generations).

I feel like Dhelmise is one of those Pokemon that would be triple typed if it was possible; it wants to be Steel type, since it learns many Steel moves by level-up (and being based on an anchor, would be made of metal). In fact, its signature move, Anchor Shot, is Steel type. Luckily, its signature ability, Steel Worker, gives it 50% boost to Steel moves, so it’s almost as if it’s Steel type to get the STAB.

Dhelmise are actually really big Pokemon, much bigger than I’d originally thought, until I saw it in the anime. It is 3.9m (12’10”) tall (so like the height of 2 people) and weighs 210kg (463.0 lbs).

It does not evolve, but it has pretty good stats with 517 total BST. It has really high Attack and high Defense, but is really slow.
