'''Shuckle''' (Japanese: '''ツボツボ''' ''Tsubotsubo'') is a {{Type|Bug}}/{{Type|Rock}}-[[Types|type]] [[Pokémon (species)|Pokémon]] introduced in [[Generation II]]. It has the highest non-legendary base [[Defense]] and [[Special Defense]] stats, but has very low [[Attack]], [[HP]], [[Special Attack]], and [[Speed]] stats. It is usually used as a stalling Wall, with moves such as [[Sandstorm]], [[Toxic]], [[Gyro Ball]] (for the sake of a decent offensive move), and [[Withdraw]]. A Shiny Shuckle appeared in the episode [[A Better Pill to Swallow]] as a purple one, despite shiny Shuckles being blue. It is known for its massive amount of [[Defense]] and resembles a turtle or tortoise. It can [[withdraw]] into its shell like a tortoise. It is able to make [[Berry]] Juice. It may have a massive amount of [[Speed]], [[Attack]], etc. if it uses [[Power Trick]] so then it may become very powerful with its [[attack]].

TriviaEdit

The drawback on those tactics is his pretty low ATK value, peaking at 130, meaning that he can become pretty defenseless once he inverts ATK and DEF values.
  • Despite Pokédex Entries saying that Shuckle has weak muscles, Shuckle is able to learn Rock Smash and Strength possibly because of its hard defense shell.
  • Shuckle is the only dual-type Pokémon that can naturally have the ability Gluttony.
