Kelpula is a dual-type Water/Grass Pokémon. No male counterparts exist for Kelpula.

It evolves from a female Weedsea when exposed to a Water Stone. It seems to be related to Kahula.

Biology

Physiology

Kelpula is a Pokémon based on kelp, seaweed, and a hula dancer. It has two long, thin yellow arms with no visible fingers on its hands, a "skirt" made of dark green kelp that also has a light blue wavy line in the middle, a light blue chest, some "hair" that's made of green and light blue seaweed, and its round yellow head has closed eyes, a small smile and two small rectangular green cheeks.

Gender Differences

Kelpula is always Female, therefore it has no differences.

Special Abilities

Kelpula colonies are everywhere on the seabed. Some fish Pokémon often attempt to eat their kelp-like appendages, which Kelpula will protect at any and all cost.

Behavior

Colonies of Kelpula are extremely abundant on the seabed. Some fish Pokémon often try to eat their kelp-like appendages, which Kelpula protects at all costs.

Habitat

Wild Kelpula are found in the grass at the Victory Isle and by Fishing with the Super Rod at Lake Bliss and on Routes 11 and 12.

Shiny Coloration Differences

For Shiny Kelpula, the face and arms turn orange, the "hair" and "skirt" turn their respective shades of yellowish-green, and the light blue turns purple.
