Gastrodon is a Pokémon that looks like a sea slug. It has a slug-like body with a spherical head and a mantle covering the top half of its body, similar to its pre-evolved form. It has three black eyes with white irises and six stubby legs. A yellow stripe runs across the rear of its head, past its bottom two eyes, and around the border of its mantle. Gastrodon, like Shellos, has two forms depending on the sea in which it dwells.

It features a pair of huge tentacles on its head that curve upward, as well as a smaller, straighter pair on its neck in its West Sea variant. It has a pink bottom and a brown mantle with three pink dots on each side. It has two bumps on its back that resemble the cerata on real-life sea slugs.

It maintains the head tentacles it had as a Shellos, but they are now entirely green and inclined slightly upward. It has a blue bottom and a green mantle with two blue dots on either side. It features a pair of yellow, fin-like cerata on its back and a wavy yellow line that runs down its side and back.

Gastrodon and its ancestors Shellos are an example of allopatric speciation, although they can still reproduce. It is also related to Shellder and Cloyster. When threatened, it erupts in purple fluid and escapes. Gastrodon dwells in shallow tidal pools and is active when the weather is gloomy or wet. It has a soft and spongy body that is surprisingly robust. It possesses great regeneration ability, allowing it to recover from injuries in a matter of hours. It eats mostly plankton, although it has been seen searching for food on land, leaving a trail of sticky slime behind. Gastrodon, on the other hand, cannot remain on land for long owing to its body’s vulnerability to dehydration. It formerly had a shell on its back, which progressively deteriorated into a thin but durable vestigial plate. The two kinds of Gastrodon are known to be antagonistic to one another.
