MoriShellmon is a Mollusk Digimon. It is a companion of Shellmon that lives in swampland deep in the forest. The color of its body and its habitat are different to Shellmon's, and it is thought that the color of its body changes depending on where it lives. Although it usually stays inside its hard shell, it has an aggressive personality like the belligerent Shellmon, and because of its large body and strength, it is unwise to approach MoriShellmon's territory and make it angry.[1] It looks like a hermit-crab. It protects itself by tucking its legs and arms inside the shell.[2]


  • Shell Pile (Pile Shell): Tuckis its limbs inside its hard shell, and then charges while spinning.
  • Mind Fog: Spews dense fog from its mouth that displays illusions.
  • Invisible Tackle (Camoufla Tackle): Camouflages as part of the forest and tackles its enemy.
  • Nature Hit Ray (Return to Nature): Changes all moves used by this Digimon to cause Nature type damage.
  • Drill Spin: Slashes with a drill slash.


MoriShellmon is a turtle-like mollusk Digimon with a blueish-green turban shell. It is black with green spots and has green anemone tendrils on its head and sucker-like fingertips on its hands. It has yellow eyes and its mouth consists of interlocking lips.
