Kabutops (Japanese: カブトプス Kabutopusu) is a Rock/Water-type Fossil Pokémon introduced in Generation I. It is Omastar's counterpart.

Biology

Physiology

Kabutops is a large, bipedal Pokémon. There are six hard spikes going down from the back of its neck, three on each side that lead down towards the beginning of its tail. Two long, sharp claws (or sickles) extend from Kabutops's exoskeleton and several plates close the opening that used to be there. Its head is covered in a rock-hard, semicircular-shaped armor. A tail protrudes from its back, bearing the same color as approximately seventy-five percent of its body.

Behavior

Kabutops was a predator that hunted in the water.

Natural abilities

Kabutops adapted the ability to walk on land. Upon evolution, Kabuto's four insect-like legs have vanished and two long feet stand in their place.

Evolution

Kabutops is the evolved form of Kabuto, as of level 40.

Appearances

Anime

There is a suggestion in an episode from the first season of Pokémon, Attack of the Prehistoric Pokémon, that Kabutops are very territorial, and have short tempers. This is supported by how Ash was attacked by one. Of course this is, however, just a suggestion, as the others were upset by Ash "dropping in" as well.

In the movie and specials

Kabutops has made several appearances in episodes, and even in the special The Mastermind of Mirage Pokémon as well as Pokémon Heroes The Movie as a prehistoric Pokémon revived from fossils, attacking Altomare with Aerodactyl.

Trivia

  • The beta name for Kabutops was "Lantis" and its pre-evolution Kabuto was "Att". Together, both names were supposed to be a pun on "Atlantis".
  • Kabuto is one of two known Pokémon (the other being Oddish, Oddium wanderus) with an official scientific name, that name being Kabutops maximus. It's unknown whether Kabuto has the same scientific name or at least the same genus (as evolution in Pokémon is more like metamorphosis or developing into an adult form, Kabuto being the juvenile form of Kabutops) or a completely different name.

Origin

Kabutops is based on the Cheirurus genus of trilobites. It may also be based on horseshoe crabs, tadpole shrimp, and possibly praying mantises.

Etymology

Kabutops and Kabutopusu may be based off of kabuto (Japanese for helmet), kabutogani (Japanese for horseshoe crab) and Triops (the genus name for a type of tadpole shrimp).
