This Gastrodon is a Water/Ground-type Pokémon owned by Zoey. It was initially caught as a Shellos.


After Dawn caught a Buizel, Zoey caught Gastrodon when it was a Shellos. Though somewhat shy, Shellos was close with Zoey, as it searched with Glameow help when she got injured.[1]

While on her way to Hearthome City with Ash and Brock, Dawn recalled her adventures so far on her journey.[2]

When Ash was battling in the Tag Battle with Paul, Ash recalled the combination which Glameow and Shellos used in the Hearthome Contest.[3] Zoey used Shellos during the Wallace Cup where it defeated a Mareep with Mud Bomb.[4]

Zoey showed her third ribbon to Dawn after the battle between Ash and Fantina. Zoey told Dawn that Shellos came through for her to win it.[5] The heroes encountered some Shellos, who were blue, and they recalled Zoey having a Shellos but hers was pink and not blue.[6]

Prior to the Grand Festival, Shellos evolved into a Gastrodon. Along with Zoey's Lumineon, it was used in the first round of the Grand Festival. Using the water stage, Gastrodon jumped up from the water and used Water Pulse on Lumineon's Aqua Ring, creating some rings where both Lumineon and Gastrodon jumped through. Both Pokémon and Zoey then jumped on the whirlpools that raised from the rings, finishing their performance.[7] Zoey used both Gastrodon and Lumineon once again in the battle round.[8] Gastrodon then battled alongside Glameow in the quarterfinals to help Zoey have a place in the semifinals.[9]
