Muscly Mussels by Kyle-Dove Muscly Mussels by Kyle-Dove
Musshield
The Mussel pokemon
Water/Steel type

"Musshield are incredibly weak. They are one of the most commonly fished pokemon, as they cover large portions of the sea floor."

Anenemy
The Shield Arm pokemon
Water/Steel type

"Upon evolution it became too big for its shell. It now uses its discarded shell as a shield to defend itself from predators."

I really wanted a mussel pokemon, so I designed one. I know it's simple and I have a lot of water types ok.

I know mussels don't become anemones but it made sense from a design perspective. The mussel's "hair" is based on some threads they use to move - yucky [link]

That's entertaining in several ways.

Hey, I'm working on a story set in the pokemon world, and I'm working to populate it with various pokemon, many of which are home-made, with some that are from the main pokemon games.

This is a really awesome idea and sprite, would it be possible I can make use of this pokemon idea and expand upon it, with a link back to this page and credit to you? I might ask this exact same question on a few of your pokemon concepts, as I'm copy-pasting this request to save time.

Basic stage is perfect, change the symbol on the shield for the stage 1 because it reminds me too much of the Templar, maybe make it a diamond symbol and probably bulk up the pokemon a tiny bit but amazing work

Very good mussel design! I also like the fact that you have so many water types to choose from because when I was playing BW, the only ones that I liked was Tortuga, Swanna, and Oshawott.

You can never have too many water-types when the ocean covers around 70% of the Earth's surface and probably the world of Pokemon too. Especially with water-type fanatics such as myself who greatly appreciate the variety in them! xD

i like that you have a lot of water types, i picture your region having a lot of coast and water in it so it fits :3

also i'm a big fan of the first one i love it's design. the second i'm not sure. i love the idea of it using its shell as a shield and evolving into an anemone but i'm not a big fan of the design i guess. idk i can't really picture it being real, like it moves with a shield? does it stick to it or does it have hands to hold it? am i thinking too much into this? lol

my thought was maybe the shield could be like attached to the front of it kind of like how sea anemones stick rocks on their "bodies" like this [link] because their bodies are like sticky they pick up chunks of sand and crap. so my thought was expand on that idea and it uses its shell as a shield on the front of it's bodies.

idk it was just a thought i really don't mind if you totally disregard this. just know i DO really love the first and the idea and i DO like parts of the evolution like the "hair" ;P
