Welcome back to the Lab! Today, I present Sheilug!
#013 SheilugBug/Steel TypeShield Bug PokemonEven some of the toughest Pokemon have a hard time breaking through the metal shell of Sheilug! Well, all apart from Fire Pokemon, of course. As they grow older, the metal part of the shell is said to grow, eventually covering the whole Pokemon. They pride themselves in their shells, and use their Harden, and at higher levels Iron Defense, attacks to strengthen them as much as they can.
This handy shell gives Sheilug the Shell Armour ability, which stops the foe from being able to land critical hits. They may be lacking in attack power, but no one can say Sheilug is an easy Pokemon to defeat in battle. Well, once again, apart from when faced by the heat of a fire type.
Due to their nature, Sheilug tend to hide away to avoid battle rather than actively seeking it. The younger ones, with less of their shell covered by metal, blend quite well in to long grass. The elders, however, obviously stand out with their mostly metallic shells! Sheilug's small legs start out weak, but have to strengthen very quickly in order to lift the weight of the shell. This ultimately results in evolution.
So join us tomorrow to meet the grappler Pokemon Armight!
Thanks again to Rain!
And now for the Dex Entry for Sheilug
