    Personally my first thought ended up being war flashbacks to Shrimp Glockenspiel. Either that or Under the Sea. All y'all need to clam down.

    It's such a weird mix of molluscs. Like a D&D Monster Manual aberration meets a Friendly Muppet... And it somehow still manages to make more sense at first sight than actual bivalves. Loving the tendril eyes here. On the other hand if I had to battle one of these... I'd probably quietly curse all the gods and wonder why isn't there an "but it affects the enemy instead" variant of Power Trick.

    Ah well. There's always toxic poison, I suppose. xD

    Holy hell is this thing a tanky beast! It can't fight back to save its life but why attack when they can PP stall their opponent? No one is penetrating that scallop anytime soon.
