Muk Cloyster


It is encased in a shell that is harder than diamond and can repel any kind of attack. Inside, however, it is surprisingly tender. Thus, it is vulnerable only when its shell is open. Clamping on to an opponent reveals its vulnerable parts, so it uses this move only as a last resort.

At night, this Pokémon uses its broad tongue to burrow a hole in the seafloor sand and then sleep in it. While it is sleeping, Shellder closes its shell, but leaves its tongue hanging out.

It swims facing backward by opening and closing its two-piece shell. It is surprisingly fast.

Grains of sand trapped in its shells mix with its body fluids to form beautiful pearls.
