This Pokémon is unavailable outside of Extrova.
Entry One A noticeably shy Pokémon, it protects itself in its habitat in coral reefs by slipping its boneless body between rocks, showing only the vibrant shell from above.
Entry Two It can slip between rocks to camouflage itself.  They are very slow and thus make a quick snack for predators... including humans!
