And of course, the same logic applies to Mimikyuu and its disguises. As well as Sinistea and Polteageist (besides the Antique / Forgery forms)Dhelmise can technically take on different forms depending on what it holds on to since the seaweed is the pokemon. It would be interesting to see Dhelmise in different forms in future games.
According to the Sun PokéDex, it isn't.I thought Dhelmise was the anchor?
That said, other entries seem to imply that the seaweed and the anchor merged. So, it's not that clear cut.Sun said:
I see. What does the Moon Dex entry say?
Which explains its typing Ghost/Grass. I wondered why Dhelmise was not a Steel-type until I read the dex entry.Moon said:The soul of seaweed adrift in the waves became reborn as this Pokémon. It maintains itself with new infusions of seabed detritus and seaweed.
Well, Pidgey evolves at Level 18, Spearow evolves as Level 20, Hoothoot evolves at Level 20, Taillow evolves at Level 22, Pidove evolves at Level 21, Fletchling evolves at Level 17, and Rookidee evolves at Level 18What level do the other early route regional birds evolve to the second stage at?
See also this Durant Pokédex entry:Noticed a curious little piece of dissonance - Galarian Weezing changed form through consumption of high levels of pollutants, and is noted as being markedly better at doing so than the Kantonian version...but, thanks to part-Fairy typing, it is actually less resistant to Poison-type attacks.
But even if that's so, the wording of that Pokédex entry goes against it. Donning steel armor does nothing but put Durant at a greater disadvantage against Heatmor. If they were evolving in response to, say, Heatmor developing the Fire type, then surely it would be more beneficial to *lose* the steel? Then they would have a somewhat better chance of surviving an attack instead of getting OHKOed. It would be one thing if they talked about the metal being heat-resistant and gave Durant Heatproof as an Ability, but that's not the case. You could posit that they've picked up the armor to defend themselves against Heatmor's previous "iteration" which might've been some other type, but that's where we stray pretty far from what I'd consider is "implied," especially since "heat" is in Heatmor's name.I'm pretty sure it's heavily implied.
