Spheal (Japanese: タマザラシ Tamazarashi) is an Ice/Water-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III that appears to be a ball-shaped seal. It can be found in Shoal Cave in Hoenn. Its shiny version changes from blue to purple.



Spheal appears to be a round sphere shaped seal with blue skin and three bubbles on it as well. They also have two small fangs along with a beige underside.

Special abilities

Spheal has the abilities Thick Fat and Ice Body along with the hidden ability Oblivious. Thick Fat halves the power of Fire and Ice-type moves whilst Ice Body heals a little bit of Spheal's HP during hailstorms including non-Ice types who also gain the ability to not be affected by hail. Oblivious prevents Spheal from being attracted.


Spheal evolves into Sealeo at level 32, which then evolves in Walrein at level 44.

Pokédex entries




Spheal first appeared in The Spheal of Approval alongside its evolved form. Both of them were at the Slateport City Oceanic Museum.

A Spheal also appeared in Destiny Deoxys along with Sealeo and Walrein.

Misty owns a bag shaped like a Spheal starting with the Advanced Generation series.

Spheal made a small appearance in The Rise of Darkrai as one of the Pokémon Darkrai hit with a Dark Void.


  • Spheal's evolutionary line and Dewgong have triple resistance if they have the Thick Fat ability.
  • Spheal can be seen as a parallel counterpart to Aron. They are both Generation III Pokémon that evolve into their first form in the thirties and then their final forms in the forties. They are both dual-type Pokémon. Aron is exclusive to Pokémon Diamond while Spheal is exclusive to Pokémon Pearl. They can be found in the same location in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, the Safari Zone.


Spheal appears to be based on a sphere shaped seal whilst its name is a mixture of Sphere and Seal.
