Binacle (Japanese: カメテテ Kametete) is a dual-type Rock/Water Pokémon introduced in Generation VI.

It evolves into Barbaracle starting at level 39.

Biology

Binacle is a Pokémon that resembles a goose barnacle. It also has the appearance of a hand and arm; the “hand” serves as its head. Its head is brown with puffy orange cheeks and an orange marking where a nose would be located. On top of its head are three long claws. Its body is orange with a white band around the middle. Binacle is always found as a pair living in a single gray rock. It moves by stretching and contracting its bodies and yanking the rock along in a hopping motion. When the pair fights, one of them will move to a different rock. Binacle eats seaweed that washes up on the shoreline.

Trivia

  • Binacle is the only Pokémon with a base stat total of 306.
  • Binacle is the favorite Pokémon of Tomoaki Imakuni.[1]

Origin

Binacle seems to be based on the goose barnacle, due to their general shape and use of a connective "stalk" to cling to rocks. Considering it survives together with a second Binacle, it may possibly be a reference to the rarer, same species symbiosis. Considering its hand-like body, and its eyes within its "palms", Binacle may have also been based on the hamsa.

Name origin

Binacle is a combination of the prefix bi- (meaning two) and barnacle. It may also refer to the nautical instrument which held a ship's compass known as a binnacle. It may also be derived from knuckle, referring to its hands and making the name a pun.

Kametete may be a combination of 亀の手 kame no te (Japanese goose barnacle), tête (French for head), and 手 te (hand).
