Dhelmise is a Pokémon made up of a ship's anchor and wheel, tied together by green seaweed, which in actuality is the Pokémon's true body. It is said that the souls of seaweed adrift in the waves are reborn as Dhelmise. It maintains itself by infusing its body with new organic material found on the seabed.

- Steelworker: Dhelmise's use of an anchor grants it an affinity for Steel-type moves, boosting their potency significantly.
- Anchor Shot: Dhelmise's signature attack in which it shoots out its anchor and entangles an opponent with it to prevent their escape.
- Phantom Force: Dhelmise vanishes from the battlefield, becoming untargetable before striking the target moments later.
- Shadow Ball: Dhelmise fires a ball of shadowy energy that may lower the target's resistance to ranged attacks.
- Energy Ball: Dhelmise fires a ball of verdant energy that may lower the target's resistance to ranged attacks.
- Giga Drain: Dhelmise rapidly drains nutrients from the target's body, which it uses to quickly heal its own wounds.
- Growth: Dhelmise uses the nutrients within its body to temporarily grow in size, gaining a proportionate increase in offensive power.
- Metal Sound: Dhelmise releases a terrible screech that lowers the target's resistance to its ranged attacks.
- Gyro Ball: Dhelmise rapidly spins around as orbs of light surround it, slamming into its target soon afterward. The power of this attack is inversely proportional to the ratio between Dhelmise's speed and its opponents'.
- Heavy Slam: Dhelmise slams into the target with all of its body weight at once, dealing damage that is directly proportional to the difference between its weight and its opponent's.
- Whirlpool: Dhelmise conjures a mighty whirlpool that envelops and traps the target, preventing them from escaping until it dissipates.
- Switcheroo: Dhelmise swaps the items it and its opponents are currently holding before they can blink, allowing it to use the stolen item at its leisure.
