Karrablast (Japanese: カブルモ Kaburumo) is a Bug-type Pokémon introduced in the Generation V.

Biology

Physiology

Karrablast is a small, beetle-like Pokémon. Its head area is black with yellow eyes, it has a yellow underbelly, and is mainly blue with a hinge-looking appendage (which helps it cling onto things) that comes from its back. For some strange reason they evolve when they receive electrical energy while they are attacking Shelmet.

Evolution

Karrablast evolves into Escavalier when traded with Shelmet.

Trivia

Origin

Karrablast seems to be based on the Japanese snail-eating beetle, due to its evolutionary relationship with Shelmet.

Etymology

Karrablast could possibly be a combination of κέρατο kérato (Greek for horn) and "plastron" (the underside of a shelled creature).
