Krabby (Japanese: クラブ Crab) is a Water-type Pokémon.

Physiology

Krabby resembles a crab. Krabby's top half is a hard shell that is orange in color, with two protrusions atop it. The lower half of its body is cream-colored, with fang-like protrusions below the mouth; Krabby's four legs and two arms are also cream-colored. Krabby has a pair of large pincers that it uses as powerful weapons or for balance purposes when it walks sideways.

Gender differences

Special abilities

If a Krabby loses a pincer in battle, it will completely grow back in a short period of time.

Behavior

On beaches where food is hard to come by, Krabby can be seen squabbling with each other over territory. When Krabby sense imminent danger, they will cloak themselves with bubbles from its mouth in an attempt at looking bigger and more intimidating.
