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

In the Hisui region, it evolves from Scyther.

Biology

Kleavor is an armored bug Pokémon with a tan and white body. It has black axe-like hands at the end of its tan arms, with its shoulders having rocky protrusion around it. Its feet have two sharp toes each and there are three white spikes on its back. Its face has a rock like formation going around it, similar to a mask, and has a singular spike on top of its head.

Kleavor is an evolution of Scyther caused by special materials found exclusively in Hisui. Its stones are often chipped off during fierce fights. Larger chips are a sign that it is experienced in battle. Stone which falls off of it during battle is used by the people of Hisui as crafting tools. Kleavor's arms are capable of causing major damage to the hardiest of foes. It also uses its arms to chop down trees and mark territory.[1]

Kleavor is the only known Pokémon capable of using 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.

It may also 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 may be a corruption of cleaver.

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).
