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

It evolves into Kingler starting at level 28.

Biology

As a crustacean, Krabby has a strong outer shell protecting its small body. Its upper half is red, containing two small spikes facing upwards on the top of its head. Its lower body is light tan and doubles as its jaw with two fangs overlapping its upper body. Its hips are visible on the lower front of its body connected to its long and thin legs, featuring small, claw-like feet. The main feature of Krabby's body is its large, red pincers. Krabby uses them as its main form of offense, and as a form of balance. Sometimes, Krabby may lose a claw during battle, or it can forcibly remove a claw if it is damaged, and regenerate the claw over a short period.

In the wild, Krabby lives near the edge of water in both fresh and salt water. Krabby is most commonly found on beaches where it burrows in the sand to live. In times of scarce food sources, it may eat sand to regain nutrients, and will be very aggressive in defending its home. Its main form of defense is creating foam to shroud its body, in order to confuse opponents into thinking that it is bigger than it actually is. As seen in the anime, on average, Krabby generally keeps to itself, but will quickly defend itself if provoked.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

During A Tale of Ninetales in Pokémon Adventures, Red caught a Krabby off-screen while he had some Blue's Pokémon in his party by mistake. Later in What a Dragonite, after HM03 (Surf) was destroyed Krabby was traded for Misty's Gyarados, Gyara, since it already knew how to use Surf. Misty later saves a Krabby trapped in Tohjo Falls in Volume 12. This act of kindness prompts Suicune to pick Misty as its Trainer, besides her being the expert for Water-type Pokémon.

Trivia

Origin

It is based on a crab.

Name origin

Krabby is a corruption of crabby (grouchy or ill-tempered) and is more than likely just a pun on crab, as nothing suggests Krabby is ill-tempered.

Crab is literally crab.
