Oshawott #501

Oshawott is a bipedal Pokémon that looks like a sea otter. It features a white spherical head with little triangular dark-blue ears on the sides. Oshawott has black eyes and a dark-orange nose formed like a horizontal oval. Several freckles cover its cheeks, which may be premature whiskers, and as it opens its lips, two sharp teeth may be seen. Its pale blue fur makes bubble formations around its neck. It has white circular arms and dark blue feet with three toes each. It also has a dark blue tail that looks like a rudder. It wears a light yellow seashell known as a “scalchop” on its belly. This shell is constructed of the same substance as its claws and is utilized for fighting as well as breaking hard fruit. If the scalchop is severely injured or destroyed, Oshawott may regenerate a new one from its navel.
