Klawf (Japanese: ガケガニ Gakegani) is a Rock-type Pokémon introduced in Generation IX.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

Biology

Klawf is a crustacean Pokémon. It is primarily orange in color, with a cream underbelly and pink cheeks that can glow red. Its carapace has a rugged texture, with three roughly pentagonal shapes protruding from the top. Its eyes are supported by stalks extending from inside its shell; Klawf can freely rotate these eyes to survey its surroundings, leaving no blind spots.[1] Klawf's mouth is large and has rectangular "teeth" resembling battlements. Klawf has eight legs, with claws on its two front-most legs. Black fur-like bristles protrude from between its eyes and cover its joints.

Klawf hangs upside down from cliffs in order to ambush its prey from above, although it can't stay upside down for too long as it will get dizzy. Klawf's claws are strong and dexterous, and have a really tight grip, especially on its prey. In battle, Klawf uses one of its claws to hold its opponent tight while using the other to break through its defenses. Klawf can grow back its claws if it loses them. Klawf's claws are used for cooking in some parts of the Paldea region.[1]

A giant Klawf, known as the Stony Cliff Titan, is one of the Titan Pokémon found in the Paldea region.

Trivia

Origin

Klawf appears to be based on various species of crabs with hair-like bristles on their bodies, such as the horsehair crab (which has an orange-brown coloration), the velvet crab (a species found in the Mediterranean Sea), or the Chinese mitten crab (an invasive species in Europe). It may also derive inspiration from rock climbing.

Name origin

Klawf may be a combination of claw and cliff.

Gakegani may be a combination of 崖 gake (cliff) and 蟹 kani (crab) or 毛蟹 kegani (horsehair crab).
