Kleavor (Japanese: バサギリ Basagiri) is a dual-type Bug/Rock Pokémon introduced in Generation VIII.

It evolves from Scyther when exposed to a Black Augurite. It is one of Scyther's final forms, the other being Scizor.

Biology

Kleavor is a mantis-like insect Pokémon with a craggy exoskeleton featuring a rock-like composition. Its predominantly beige and white body is adorned with numerous black rocky protrusions, including a ring of angular rocks on each of its shoulders, a mask of rock lining its brows down to its jawline, two sharp toe claws on each foot, and a single black shard of rock atop the crown of its head. The large wings present on Scyther's back seem to have atrophied into vestigial features on Kleavor. Most notably, each of Kleavor's two spindly front limbs end in large axe-like appendages made of heavy black rock, capable of causing severe damage to the hardiest of foes. Kleavor swings these appendages to carve and chop down trees, marking its territory.[1]

Kleavor is an evolution of Scyther caused by Black Augurites found in Hisui. The stones that adorn Kleavor's body often get chipped during fierce fights; larger chips are a sign that it is experienced in battle. Stone shards that fell off Kleavor during battle were known to have been collected and used by the settlers of Hisui to craft tools.[1] Kleavor are known to be very hostile, to the point that it is best avoided if ever encountered in the wild.

A special Kleavor is worshiped by the Hisui people as it was among the ten ancient Pokémon blessed by Arceus. In particular, it is one of the Noble Pokémon who resides in Obsidian Fieldlands watched by a warden.

Kleavor is the only known Pokémon capable of learning the move Stone Axe.

Trivia

Origin

Kleavor may be based on a praying mantis with stone axes for forelegs. Due to its coloration, it may be based on a dead leaf mantis in particular. Its stones appear to be based on obsidian, a volcanic glass with a deep black color that produces sharp edges when fractured. The shard on its head resembles a stylized chonmage, a topknot hairstyle worn by samurai and sumo wrestlers, or a ji, a Chinese topknot that was worn by men.

Kleavor's overall design may be inspired by the idiom 蟷螂の斧 tōrō no ono (lit. mantis's axe), a figurative expression that connotes a courageous but doomed resistance​. In Japanese, the alternate name for the mantis is 斧虫 onomushi, literally meaning "axe bug".

Name origin

Kleavor seems to be a corruption of cleaver, or a combination of cleaver and razor.

Basagiri may be a combination of バッサリ bassari (with a single stroke), ばさら basara (acting without restraint; a term used during medieval Japan describing the disregard for the higher ranks), a corruption of berserker, 鉞 masakari (broadaxe), and カマキリ kamakiri (mantis).
