Digimon Adventure[edit]

Shellmon using Hydro Pressure in Digimon Adventure
Shellmon in Digimon Adventure

A Shellmon attacks the Chosen Children at a beach in "Explosive Evolution! Greymon". Agumon is the only of their Digimon who is able to hurt Shellmon, as he had eaten before. After Shellmon grabs Taichi with the tentacles on his head, Agumon evolves to Greymon and defeats Shellmon by throwing him off and hitting him with the technique Mega Flame in midair.

The same Shellmon reappears in "The Raging King of the Seas! Metal Seadramon", this time being able to speak fluently. He attempts to take revenge on the Chosen Children. Shellmon places a lifebelt on the top of his shell and cries for help, pretending that someone is in danger. When the children and their partners reach the lifebelt, Shellmon attacks again, but doesn't stand a chance against the Digimon in their Child forms and therefore escapes.

Digimon Adventure 02[edit]

A Shellmon is among the Digimon controlled by the Digimon Kaiser's Evil Rings in "Destroy the Dark Tower".

In "Coral and Versailles, The Battle Royal!", a Shellmon appears in the Real World in Australia alongside an Ebidramon and a Gesomon. The three Digimon chase the Chosen Child Dingo and his partner Ganimon. Jou gets the idea calling out several seafood names to threaten the Digimon, causing them to become scared and flee. They are eventually sent back to the Digital World.

Digital Monster Ver. S[edit]

Digimon World[edit]

Shellmon appears as an obtainable Adult-level Data type Digimon in Digimon World.

After you defeat Orgemon in the Ogre Fortress and use the elevator there, it'll cause a Shellmon who was wandering around to get stuck, and cries for help. The Player needs to use the elevator again to free him, and has to climb the Great Canyon, finding an alternate route without using the elevator and reaching to Shellmon. Shellmon will thank the player for freeing him and will join the Village of Beginnings where it'll put a Bulletin Board in the city, which its useful to see where to go next and when to recruit new Digimon, similar to how Angemon, Yuramon and Tunomon function like.

Both Betamon and Penmon can evolve into Shellmon, in order to evolve into Shellmon, your Digimon must meet the following criteria:

  • At least 1000 HP and 100 Defense stat requirements
  • More than 5 Care Mistakes
  • A Weight between 35 to 45g
  • Bonus conditions: Have Betamon as a Partner and have at least 35 different techniques mastered.

Shellmon's Digivolution item is the Red Shell which lets any Child Digimon evolve into Shellmon.

Shellmon has 5 possible evolutions depending on the stats and Care Mistakes made:

Finishing Technique-Hydro Pressure:

Shellmon pumps a column of water out of its head and lands on the enemy, struck by the water's strong pressure.
