Digimon Dictionary


A Digimon in the form of a hermit crab that lives on the shallow seabeds of the "Net Ocean". It looks more like a tortoise that has settled into its shell, but it actually has a tender mollusk-like body. Because it has to keep swapping its home for a new one in order to accommodate the steady growth of its body, it soon becomes the size of a small rocky island when it's fully grown. In addition, so long as its body can completely fit into them, it has a habit of settling into any object. It has a low amount of intelligence, but because it also has a belligerent personality, you must be careful if you happen to come across Shellmon. Its special attack is "Hydro Pressure", wherein it fires water that's highly pressurized. (Wildermon)




Digital Monster Version 3


A hermit crab-like Digimon that lives in the margins of the "Net Ocean". Although it has a turtle-like appearance when its settled inside its shell, for all intents and purposes it has a soft body like a mollusk. Because its body rapidly gets bigger as it grows, it replaces its home each time until it reaches the size of a small mountain. Also, if its body can fit all the way in, it has a habit of settling in. Since it has low intelligence and a belligerent personality, you must be careful if you come across a Shellmon. Its Special Move is shooting liquid at high pressure (Hydro Pressure).

ヤドカリに にている 水せいがたデジモン
カラは かたいが 体は とてもよわらかい
じぶんの体が すっぽりと はいるものになら
なんにでも すみつき 成長するたびに
すみかをかえていき なかには こだかい
やまくらいの おおきさになる シェルモンもいる

An Aquatic Digimon that took on the form of a hermit crab, it can live either on the shores of the "Net Ocean" or on the shallow bottom of the sea.
