In JE054: A Better Pill to Swallow, a Shuckle appeared. Butch's Shuckle and Conway's Shuckle appeared in DP065: Sleight of Sand! and DP185: Working on a Right Move! respectively. Shuckles also made more minor appearances in the anime.
- Shuckle's base Defense is equal to that of both Mega Aggron and Mega Steelix.
- Shuckle couldn't use any Bug-type moves in Pokémon Platinum despite Bug being its primary type.
- Shuckle is the only Pokémon with a function that is not an ability (changing of Oran Berry to Berry Juice then finally into a Rare Candy.)
- It is possible for Shuckle to have the highest attack of all the Pokémon using the move Power Trick which switches a Pokémon's Attack and Defense. 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.
