Accelgor #617


Accelgor is a Pokémon with a big pink head curved at the rear, like a helmet. Green stripes go from its eyes to the top of its head, and the front has a black star-shaped marking or hole. Its eyes are buried in a shadowy cleft at the back of its skull. The remainder of Accelgor’s body is covered with a blue, cloth-like membrane that prevents dehydration, with ribbon-like extensions at the top of its back. When its arms are crossed, it conveys a hostile demeanor.

It is a swift Pokémon that strikes in ninja-like fashion. Water Shuriken is the trademark move of Generation VIII. It prefers damp environments such as bogs and marshes. Accelgor is often included as a key character in films or comic books in order to promote the popularity of these items. Accelgor’s pouting countenance and crossed arms are caused by its dissatisfaction with having shed its shell.
