HeartGoldIf the tail-biting SHELLDER is thrown off in a harsh battle, it reverts to being an ordinary SLOWPOKE.
SoulSilverNaturally dull to begin with, it lost its ability to feel pain due to SHELLDER's seeping poison.
RubySLOWBRO's tail has a SHELLDER firmly attached with a bite. As a result, the tail can't be used for fishing anymore. This causes SLOWBRO to grudgingly swim and catch prey instead.
Sapphire
Emerald
FireRedWhen a SLOWPOKE went hunting in the sea, its tail was bitten by a SHELLDER. That made it evolve into SLOWBRO.
LeafGreenThe SHELLDER that latches onto SLOWPOKE's tail is said to feed on the host's leftover scraps.
GoldIf the tail-biting SHELLDER is thrown off in a harsh battle, it reverts to being an ordinary SLOWPOKE.
SilverNaturally dull to begin with, it lost its ability to feel pain due to SHELLDER's seeping poison.

RedThe SHELLDER that is latched onto SLOWPOKE's tail is said to feed on the host's left over scraps.
