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.

Biology

Physiology

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.

Evolution

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

Pokédex entries

Pokédex Entries
Ruby
Spheal is much faster rolling than walking to get around. When groups of this Pokémon eat, they all clap at once to show their pleasure. Because of this, their mealtimes are noisy.
Sapphire
Spheal always travels by rolling around on its ball-like body. When the season for ice floes arrives, this Pokémon can be seen rolling about on ice and crossing the sea.
Emerald
It is completely covered with plushy fur. As a result, it never feels the cold even when it is rolling about on ice floes or diving in the sea.
FireRed
Its body is covered in fluffy fur. The fur keeps it from feeling cold while it is rolling on ice.
LeafGreen
Its body is covered in fluffy fur. The fur keeps it from feeling cold while it is rolling on ice.
Diamond
It rolls across ice floes to reach shore because its body is poorly shaped for swimming.
Pearl
It rolls across ice floes to reach shore because its body is poorly shaped for swimming.
Platinum
It rolls across ice floes to reach shore because its body is poorly shaped for swimming.
HeartGold
It crosses the oceans by rolling itself on drifting ice. Fluffy fur keeps it warm when the temperature is below freezing.
SoulSilver

Appearances

Anime

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.

Trivia

  • 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.

Etymology

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