They wanted a pokemon like that.

It's an intresting pokemon to use really.

I like Shuckle. But, I have never used it before. The only thing that I dont like about it is its low base Hp. Otherwise, I would use it.

Because it makes an interesting defense choice (sure it has high defenses but has low HP). Besides, in D/P it will have a diffferent way of getting into teams, i guess (trick room plus power trick).

Shuckle has an new attack in D/P that allows it to switch his defence with his attack. Then he can be more useful. Anyway I have never use him because his attacks stat suck.

20 Base HP = a great reason to avoid Shuckle.

Anyway, there are far better walls than Shuckle.

I like Shuckle but I feel sorry for his HP. If HP was 120 Shuckle would a very good annoyer.

I like Shuckle. It's an interesting pokemon to use as stated before. I use Shuckle but only in certain situations.

And yes if it's HP was higher, it could've been a good annoyer... Sadly that's not the truth behind it.

Its of no use. Shuckle is still a bad Pokčmon. If you want it to successfully take down foes (with Power Trick), you will have to put a lot of effort to set it up correctly.

It's more of a "worm in an apple" which i believe is why it's defenses are so high yet HP is so low. A weak bug (low HP) inside a sturdy apple (High defenses).
