East Sea Form

Sun Shellos lives in the sea and feasts on plankton. The lovelier the ocean where Shellos resides, the more vibrant its color becomes.
Moon The difference in color from one Shellos to another seems to be a result of their diet. No large changes can be seen in their capabilities.
Ultra Sun When it senses danger, it gushes a purple liquid. Some theories suggest this liquid is a greasy sweat induced by stress.
Ultra Moon Scientists interested in its great regenerative capabilities are currently analyzing the materials from which its cells are made.

West Sea Form

Sun For the most part, it makes its home along the seashore. Its color and form differ according to its habitat and the quality of its food.
Moon Purple mucus sticks to the hands of anyone who touches it. Take care, as the substance is troublesome to wash off.
Ultra Sun While they normally live in the sea, they can function on land, too, until their skin dries out.
Ultra Moon When it senses danger, a purple liquid oozes out of it. The liquid is thought to be something like greasy sweat.
