Binacle (カメテテ Kametete) is a Rock/Water-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VI.

Biology

Physiology

Binacle is a two-headed barnacle-based Pokémon. It lives in pairs two on the same rock. Its two heads also serve as its hands, as it has sharp yellowish claw-like features atop its heads. Its heads are attached to a grey rock by orange and white striped tentacles. Each of Binacle's heads are brown in color with sulky expressions on their faces.

Behavior

Binacle seems to be an ill-tempered Pokémon, like Dodrio. Its two heads sometimes quarrel, and often a head will move to a different rock when fights break out.

Evolution

Binacle evolves into Barbaracle at level 39.
