3. Marshadow Pokémon | Shape
Marshadow’s shape resembles a humanoid entity with a smoky gray shadow-like form. From the top, the area around its face appears like a headgear as if there is a helmet for its face. And on top of that headgear, you can see two curled horns which appear a lot like its ears.
Now, moving on to Marshadow’s eyes, they look fiery with their orange-reddish shade along with yellow pupils and an oval marking above each eye. You can even notice a small bump on both the wrists of Marshadow’s arm.
Though encountering an angry Marshadow is almost a stuff of legends, it is said that when a raging Marshadow is using its exclusive Z-Move, it becomes Zenith Marshadow. This state causes its headgear, eyes, and even wrist bumps to blaze up in yellow-green flames.
