Shellshock is a turtle monster that Squatt and Baboo create by themselves in order to please Rita. Shellshock has a stoplight that can freeze people in motion or freeze them up. When Shellshock begins his attack, he freezes up Billy, Zack, and Kimberly and sends Trini into perpetual motion. Jason manages to get away. Rita enlarges Shellshock. Tommy and Jason try to fight him, but the turtle manages to freeze the controls on Tommy’s Dragonzord and Jason’s Dino Zord.

Their only hope is a flower called the Deandra flower. Zordon has sent Trini to the Mountain of Hope to find the flower that will free Tommy and Jason’s Zord and restore mobility to Zack, Billy, and Kimberly. Trini manages to find the Deandra flower and frees the Power Rangers from the spell. The flower also absorbs Shellshock’s powers. Now, with Shellshock weak, the Dinozord conquers Shellshock.
