Its ridged underbelly, or plastron, is yellow, and its stubby arms and legs are black.

Trivia

  • Karrablast and Shelmet are the only Pokémon that have to be traded for a specific Pokémon to evolve, having to be traded for each other.
  • Despite its Pokédex entry stating that it can spew acidic liquid when threatened, Karrablast cannot learn Acid, Acid Bomb or any similar move. In fact, the only Poison-type moves it can learn are Toxic and Poison Jab.

Origin

Karrablast appears to be based on the Kabutomushi.

Name origin

Karrablast is most likely a combination of Greek κέρατο kérato, "horn", and plastron, the underside of a shelled creature (what one would likely call its "belly"). It may also be a corruption of the word Carabidae, the family of ground beetles.
