Pokédex entries

  • Sun

    While guarding its weak points with its pincers, it looks for an opening and unleashes punches. When it loses, it foams at the mouth and faints.

  • Moon

    It punches so much, its pincers often come off from overuse, but they grow back quickly. What little meat they contain is rich and delicious.

  • Ultra Sun

    Its hard pincers are well suited to both offense and defense. Fights between two Crabrawler are like boxing matches.

  • Ultra Moon

    Crabrawler has been known to mistake Exeggutor for a coconut tree and climb it. The enraged Exeggutor shakes it off and stomps it.
