Chespin is a mammalian bipedal Pokémon. It is mostly light brown in color, with darker arms and three triangle marks on its face. It features brown eyes that are oval in shape, a triangular red nose, and rodent-like incisors. It has three fingers on each arm and two lengthy claws on each foot. A durable, green shell covers its back, extending from its head to halfway down its tail. The orange tip of its tapering tail. The shell contains a tiny, off-center aperture on the rear of Chespin’s head and four leaf-like spikes surrounding the face. Another spike is divided into three sections on the rear of its head.

Chespin’s shell can defend it from heavy strikes. The quills on its head are generally soft, but they may be hardened to attack. Despite having an inquisitive curiosity that sometimes leads to misfortune, Chespin maintains a positive attitude and is unconcerned about little things.
