Spheal (Japanese: タマザラシ Tamazarashi) is an Ice/Water-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

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.

Natural 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.

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 to Ice-type moves if they have the Thick Fat ability.

Etymology

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