Origin[edit | edit source]

Design[edit | edit source]

Like its pre-evolution, Dwebble, Crustle is based off of a hermit crab.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Crustle's English name appears to be a portmanteau of "crust" and "mantle", which are the first two layers of the Earth's surface.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Crustle represents July in the Unova horoscope.
