Kabuto (Japanese: カブト Kabuto) is a Rock/Water-type Fossil Pokémon introduced in Generation I that can be resurrected from a Dome Fossil. It is Omanyte's counterpart.

Biology

Physiology

Kabuto is a flat Pokémon with a brown shell. It has two circular dents on its shell and its small, black eyes are visible from the top. Its underside is black with two red spots. It has four yellow, pointed legs.

Behavior

While concealed, Kabuto leaves exposed only its hard shell, which protects it from predators, while the small, black eyes on its back allow it to continue monitoring its surroundings.

Natural abilities

If it is flipped upside-down, it becomes helpless and defenseless as it is unable to flip over on its own.

Evolution

Kabuto evolves into Kabutops at level 40.

Trivia

  • The beta name of Kabuto was "Att", and its evolution Kabutops was "Lantis", which is obviously a pun on "Atlantis".
  • A study conducted in 2019 found that horseshoe crabs (part of Kabuto's origin) were arachnids, thus retroactively making Kabuto (and thus Kabutops) the first arachnid-based Pokémon.

Origin

Kabuto is based on a trilobite with elements of the still-living, but ancient, horseshoe crabs.

Etymology

Kabuto's name comes from 兜蟹 (kabutogani, horseshoe crab (literally meaning "helmet crab")).
