Shellder evolution guide

Kanto is home to many Pokémon, but Shellder’s evolution is one of the more sought-after ones in the water department, as, in a similar vein to Magikarp and Gyarados, Cloyster is a huge upgrade from the stage one ‘mon. Except, unlike its fellow sea dwellers, you need a certain item to evolve Shellder, but that’s okay. We can tell you all you need to know.

As a water and ice Pokémon, Cloyster can cause all sorts of problems for grass Pokémon, ground Pokémon, flying Pokémon, dragon Pokémon, fire Pokémon, and rock Pokémon. However, our water Pokémon weakness and ice Pokémon weakness guides can help you get the upper hand on Shellder and Cloyster. We say Shellder, but really we’re just throwing the dog a bone, or is it throwing a pearl to a clam?
