Kabutops (Japaneseカブトプス Kabutops) is a dual-type Rock/Water Fossil Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

It evolves from Kabuto starting at level 40, after it is revived from a Dome Fossil.

Biology

With a body closely resembling a living skeleton, Kabutops has a half-moon, disc shaped head, with two small, forward facing eyes. Its body has a light gray chest plate with a brown shell resembling a visible backbone, containing three ribs protruding on each side and a thick pointed tail. It does not have hands, but large, sharp, gray scythes. Its legs are brown and thin, leading into small feet with two large gray claws.

Kabutops can tuck in its shell to help it swim extremely fast in its ocean home, where it can catch prey. It uses its sharp scythes to cut enemies and drink their internal fluids. Before it went extinct, it was in the process of evolving into a land dweller in order to catch prey that had already evolved into land dwelling species. As seen in the anime, Kabutops greatly prefer to live in seclusion, and will become very hostile when provoked.

Trivia

  • In the Pokémon Red and Blue beta, Kabutops was originally known as "Lantis". This is derived from the word "Atlantis".
  • Kabutops has a scientific name, Kabutops maximus, which was stated in Fossil Fools. The only other Pokémon with a known scientific name is Oddish, with Oddium Wanderus. The name Kabutops maximus does have a real meaning; when translated, it means "the largest kabuto-face", referring to the size and shape of Kabutops's head.
  • Kabutops and its pre-evolution share their category name with Blastoise. They are all known as the Shellfish Pokémon.

Origin

Similarly to how Kabuto is based on horseshoe crabs, Kabutops resembles eurypterids, prehistoric arthropods which hunted in seas and rivers and are believed to have been related to modern horseshoe crabs. The large head is also identical to the cephalon in trilobites and the spines down the back resemble thoracic sections in trilobites, though the scythes and predatory nature much more closely resemble eurypterids. Because of these cross-similarities, it may also be based on the Cheirurus genus of trilobites.

Name origin

Kabutops's name derives from both the Japanese words 兜 kabuto (helmet) and 兜蟹 kabutogani (horseshoe crab). The end of its name may derive from the Greek word ops (face), or it might refer to the living fossil triops or the fact that its helmet is now on the top of its head and no longer covers its whole body.
