Det er beton. En sort, perlelignende Pokémon, der er omfavnet af takket, blåviolet beklædning. Den har modhagelignende spikes, som rager ud fra dens hoved. Skallen er hårdere end en diamant med pigge. Ja, den er endnu hårdere, og barske tidevandsstrømme vil påvirke størrelsen og skarphed af piggene. På sit perlelignende ansigt har den to hvide øjne og en mund. Anatomien er aldrig set før. Den åbne form angriber enhver potentiel modstander. Hurtigt retter den sine pigge mod fjenden og får den på afstand. Det imponerende forsvar gør det muligt at modstå alt fra et bombebrag til en missilstrejke. Store, tunge betonskulpturer findes der mange af i kunstverdenen. De suger havvand og kaster det derefter bagud, og så driver de med bølgen, som med en vandlåst jets fremdrift.

It is concrete. A black, peal-like Pokémon. It is surrounded by a jagged, blue-violet outer shell casing. It has barb-like spikes protruding from above its head. Its shell is harder than a diamond with spikes that are even harder; harsh tidal currents will affect the size and sharpness of these glossy spikes. On its pearl-like face, it has two white eyes and a mouth. Its internal anatomy has never been seen. It only opens its shell to attack an opponent. With rapid succession, it launches its spikes at the foe, keeping them repelled. This impressive defense allows it to withstand anything from a big bomb blast to shrewish anti-missile protest. Within the art world there is a ton of large, heavy sculptures of concrete. They swallow seawater and eject it towards the rear driving with the waves as with siphon-jet propulsion.
