Krabby (Japanese: クラブ Kurabu) is a Water-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I. It lives in burrows dug on sandy beaches. Its pincers can also grow back if they are broken in battle.

Biology[edit | edit source]

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Krabby is a River Crab Pokémon. It is red on top and mostly tan on the bottom. Its signature feature are the two long pincers it has.

Krabby in anime

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Krabby is an omnivore and a scavenger; it rarely hunts for itself. It can also act as a filter feeder by harmonizing bacteria in the sand, but this is rare. It is territorial, and in beaches where there is little food, fights between Krabby are common. Krabby also uses camouflage; it can form mucus sacs about itself if threatened, making it seem larger or making it harder to spot against sea sand. It is usually very small, but it makes up by its aggressiveness.

Special abilities[edit | edit source]

Krabby can have the ability Hyper Cutter or the ability Shell Armor. Hyper Cutter prevents Krabby's attack from decreasing. Shell Armor causes all attacks of the opponent to not be critical hits towards Krabby. If one of its arms break off, it can grow a new one back. They are usually found under the sand in beaches.

Evolution[edit | edit source]

Krabby evolves into Kingler at level 28.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

In the anime[edit | edit source]

Krabby first appeared at a beach in episode 13, Mystery At The Lighthouse, when Ash Ketchum wanted to prove that he could catch a Pokémon alone. After the capture (which involved Krabby attacking Ash's finger), it was automatically transferred to Professor Oak's lab, because Ash already had six Pokémon with him. To Ash's great surprise, Gary had also caught another Krabby, which was much larger than his. Ash used Krabby in his first battle at the Indigo Tournament. Krabby won against an Exeggutor and evolved into Kingler, despite the fact that Krabby had never even battled before.
