Shelgon (コモルー) is the 188th Pokémon in the Hoenn Pokédex. It is a Dragon type, and is known as the Endurance Pokémon.

Shelgon has the Rock Head Ability, which makes it immune to the effects of recoil from moves that cause recoil, with the exception of Struggle. A second Ability is available to Shelgon from the Dream World, the Overcoat Ability. This Ability protects it from taking damage as the result of the effects of the weather, such as Sandstorm or Hail.

Bagon evolves into Shelgon starting at Level 30, and gains the opportunity to evolve a second time at Level 50 into a Salamence. Starting in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, Salamence can evolve into a Mega Salamence by using a Mega Stone.

Shelgon is in the Dragon Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 10,240 Steps to hatch. It takes Shelgon 1,250,000 Experience Points to reach Level 100.

[edit] Game Information

[edit] Spin-off Games

Shelgon appears at Endless Levels 59 & 61, Forever Level 9 and Mr. Who's Den in Pokémon Trozei!.

Shelgon appears at Mt. Freeze 1F-6F, Wish Cave 65F-69F, Wyvern Hill 9F-16F and Joyous Tower 60F-64F in the first round of Mystery Dungeon games. In Explorers of Time, Explorers of Darkness & Explorers of Sky, Shelgon appears at Sealed Ruins B1-B8 & IB1-B6 and Sky Stairway 1F-49F.

Shelgon only appears during Missions in Pokémon Ranger. Shelgon appears inside the Volcano Cave in Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia, and returns in Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs at the Interior of Faldera Volcano in the Present, and in the Dark Temple Missions Danger! Surrounded by Pokémon and Ground-Shaking Dragon Pokémon in the Past by capturing it and obtaining its Slate. Both missions have difficult bosses to beat (the latter of which features a Salamence as its Boss), making beating the missions to keep those slates a considerably difficult challenge, especially playing solo.

[edit] Anime/Manga Information

Shelgon has yet to appear in any of the films as of writing.

[edit] Manga

Drake of Hoenn's Elite Four uses a Shelgon in Chapters 251 and 253.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Shelgon finds itself in the Never-Utilized and Rarely-Utilized Tiers of Competitive Battling. While it has a good Attack and Defense Statistics, holding Eviolite give both of its Defenses a boost, making Shelgon a capable physical tank that can also hit hard.

If Shelgon doesn't have Brick Break (and Hydro Pump, to a lesser extent) in its move set, Bastiodon and Probopass will be able to wall it, set up against it and either force it to switch out or take it out. Afflicting it with a Burn will lower its Attack and limit the amount of time Shelgon will appear in battle, but the best way to take it out quickly is to hit it with Special Attacks, especially Ice-Type moves.
