Banette is a dark gray, doll-like Pokémon filled with malice. It has three small spikes on its head and a lengthy zigzagging ribbon trailing after it. It features purplish-pink eyes with slit pupils and a zipper for a mouth. It has long, flat arms with three-fingered hands and short, stubby legs. It has a brush-like golden tail.

This Pokémon acquires numerous more zippers as Mega Banette, including one running diagonally across its face, one on each hand, and one on its torso. The first zipper goes from the point of its central spike to its left eye. The other three have all been unzipped, displaying different sections of Mega Banette’s cursed purple body. It has three long purple fingers and a torso with two pointed purple legs. Its zigzagging ribbon gets more upright and has two zipper rings around it as well as a short zipper on the tip. It gets four more spikes: one on each hand’s top and bottom, and one on each hip. It does, however, lose its brush-like tail.

Being propelled to life by a tremendous grudge, it maintains its life energy secure inside its body through its zipped up lips. It would lose energy if it were unzipped. It curses people by using its own body as a voodoo doll and inserting pins into it. It dwells in rubbish dumps and dark alleyways, looking for the person who discarded it before it became a Pokémon. It is thought that treating it with sufficient care would appease its resentment and transform it back into a stuffed toy. When it Mega Evolves, it is filled with such much strength and vengeance that it can’t help but curse its Trainer.

In Pokemon GO, one of the numerous captureable Pokemon is Banette.

Shuppet’s family may be discovered in the game as a shiny.
