Kingler (Japanese: キングラー Kingler) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon.

It evolves from Krabby starting at level 28.

Biology

Physiology

Kingler is a large crab-like Pokémon. Its claws and upper half of its body are reddish-orange with the four legs and lower body being cream-colored. Its left claw is particularly larger than the right one.

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 is a fully evolved Pokémon, it is capable of using Hyper Beam and Giga Impact.

Behavior

It waves this 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.

In the anime

Major Appearances

Ash's Kingler

Other

Despite the type disadvantage, Giovanni's Kingler was defeated by Gary's Arcanine. Giovanni had loaned his Kingler to Jessie, James and Meowth when he put them in charge of the Viridian Gym while he was out.

  • Korean: 킹크랩 Kingkeuraep - A combination of transliterations of king and crab.
