Kabutops's Fossil

The fossil's image from the museum should be paced in the article as is the case with Aerodactyl, but where would be the appropriate place to put it? -Lord Hyren 19:44, 21 June 2008 (UTC)

I added in the image in the trivia section, I think it looks interesting to any passing viewers. -Lord Hyren 19:55, 21 June 2008 (UTC)

Eurypterid Design Basis

Changed from Trilobite to Eurypterid. Kabutops is a lot more like a Eurypterid anyway. Makes sense. -Zog


There is something wrong with the last piece of trivia.I don't know how to fix it.Help please!--Frostagin 21:29, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

What exactly is wrong Turtwig A Contributions Talk 21:30, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

Sorry. I think my computer is being weird.--Frostagin 21:33, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

Adding a space before writing something puts a blue box around it. This problem has been solved. —darklordtrom 21:34, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

HGSS fossil?

Does Kanutops appear as a fossil in HGSS? If so, could some1 upload the sprite? Shiny Pika 21:34, 17 November 2009 (UTC)

Name origin

There is a genus of trilobite named Phacops as well as several other genera such as "Paciphacops, Kainops, Reedops, Eldredgeops, Chotecops, Viaphacops, Drotops, Eophacops" (see also this page). I think a sound argument could be made that the "ops" in "Kabutops" is a reference to the naming convention of this family of trilobites. - TIMMY 03:04, 6 December 2010 (UTC)

Ancestor of Scyther?

I was wondering if a section should be added to the trivia, detailing the possible relation of the species, like there is on he Aggron page about Bastiodon. - unsigned comment from Tesseract (talkcontribs)

I removed the trivia on Aggron's page, as it is baseless fan speculation/comparisons, which Bulbapedia tries to avoid. So it wouldn't go here either. —darklordtrom 07:06, 10 December 2010 (UTC)


So you are saying that Kabuto only evolves in SS and Omanyte only evolves in HG? So if I trade them they won't evolve in those games? I think I might just remove that bit, since I'm pretty sure you can evolve them after trading to the opposite game. =/ Frozen Fennec 02:16, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

It's saying that you can only get Kabuto in SS, so to get it in HG you would have to trade it in. --SnorlaxMonster 02:20, 15 January 2011 (UTC)
I was talking about the evolved forms actually. I know that I can only get them in those games but I'm pretty sure you can still get the evolved forms after trading over the preevolution. Or is it just saying that on the evolved forms page to keep with what it says on the preevolution page? Frozen Fennec 02:24, 15 January 2011 (UTC)
The point is, to get a Kabutops in HG, you have to trade. It doesn't matter whether you trade a Kabuto or a Kabutops, you still have to trade. In SS, all you have to do is evolve Kabuto. Werdnae (talk) 02:29, 15 January 2011 (UTC)
Alright then, thanks for clearing that up for me. Frozen Fennec 02:31, 15 January 2011 (UTC)


In Pokemon Heroes, I am pretty sure the evil Kabutops is bigger that normal. Just wondering if this should be noted or scrapped. Mesprit, Uxie, Azelf. Mesuxelf 12:48, 2 December 2012 (UTC)

I agree, it should be noted, so I put that information in the anime section.
I don't think it's noteworthy enough to be in the trivia section though. TheBlazikenMaster (talk) 14:54, 2 December 2012 (UTC)
