Kingler (Japanese: キングラー Kingler) is a Water-type Pokémon.

It evolves from Krabby starting at level 28.

Biology

Physiology

Kingler is a crab-like Pokémon with four legs, two arms, and two powerful pincers. The upper half of its body and its pincers are orange, while the bottom half and legs are cream colored. Kingler has spikes on its head, and has a large lower jaw with teeth-like bumps. Its left pincer is particularly larger than its right pincer.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Kingler's left pincer boasts 10,000 horsepower of crushing force, but its massive weight makes it difficult for Kingler to aim with.

Since Kingler are fully evolved Pokémon, they are capable of using Hyper Beam and Giga Impact.

Behavior

They wave their huge claw in the air to communicate with others. However, because the claw is so heavy, the Pokémon quickly tires.

Habitat

It can be presumed that, like its pre-evolution, Kingler live in beaches. It is found in Kanto and Johto.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

Kingler mainly eat Shellder and possibly other species of mollusk Pokémon.

Trivia

  • Kingler's left claw is always the larger of the two, except in Generation I and its early artwork by Ken Sugimori, where this is reversed.
  • Kingler shares the same species name with Scizor. They are both known as Pincer Pokémon, though Scizor has also been called the Scissors Pokémon.
  • Kingler has the highest Attack stat out of all Water-type Pokémon, having a base Attack of 130.
  • Unlike its real world counterpart, the female version of Kingler does not have equal sized small claws.
  • Kingler can be female even though it has "king" in it's name.

Origin

Kingler is very similar to a fiddler crab, or may be based on the land crab, which both usually have one claw larger than the other, like Kingler does.

Name origin

Kingler may be a combination of king and fiddler, both of which are species of crab. It may also be a combination of "king" and "angler".
