Grimer Shellder


From Muk’s body seeps a foul toxic fluid that gives off a nose-bending horrible stench. The fluid instantly kills plants and trees on contact. Just one drop of this Pokémon's body fluid can turn a pool stagnant and rancid. It prefers warm and humid habitats. In the summertime, the toxic substances in its body intensify, making Muk reek like putrid kitchen garbage. As it moves, a very strong poison leaks from it, making the ground there barren for three years.

This Pokémon's favorite food is anything that is revoltingly filthy. In dirty towns where people think nothing of throwing away litter on the streets, Muk are certain to gather as they love to gather in smelly areas where sludge accumulates, making the stench around them worse.
