Kingler (Japaneseキングラー Kingler) is a Water-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

It evolves from Krabby starting at level 28.

Biology

Kingler is a crustacean Pokémon resembling a crab. Its strong shell covers the outside of its body, featuring a red upper-half, and a light tan lower-half. Its upper half is topped with six tall, thin spikes that resemble a crown. Its lower half doubles as its jaw with six fangs overlapping its upper body. Its two outer fangs are much larger than the inner two, and are roughly half as tall as Kingler's entire body. Its hips are visibly protruding from its lower body connecting its long, thin legs with claw-like feet. Kingler's main feature is its red claws. Its left claw is roughly twice as large as the other and hard as steel.

Kingler is often found on the edges of water, usually the ocean. It has been observed using its powerful claws to pry open the shells of Shellder and Cloyster. While Kingler's large, left claw is it main tool for offensive maneuvers, it is so large and heavy that Kingler can barely lift it. It causes balancing problems and Kingler may quickly become fatigued from continuous use. However, it has been shown to communicate with other Kingler by waving its pincers around.

Trivia

  • Kingler shares its category name with Scizor. They are both known as the Pincer Pokémon, though Scizor was originally called the Scissors Pokémon.

Origin

Kingler is very similar to a fiddler crab or a terrestrial crab of the genus Cardisoma, which usually have one claw larger than the other. Conceptually, it is likely based on a king crab.

Name origin

Kingler may be a combination of king and fiddler, both of which are species of crab. It may also be a combination of "king" and "angler".

Generation 1 Startegies (Pokémon Red and Blue)

 

Overview

He's decent, but he's slow and his Special is terrible, so he'll die to two strong special attacks. Alakazam KOes him with two Psychics, as does Exeggutor. Starmie can KO him in two Thunderbolts, Zapdos OHKOes him, and the Razor Leaf users destroy him as well. He's meant for UU--it takes too much effort to put him in a favorable position in OU, and when you actually do, he's not all that great either.

 

Swords Dance

Move 1
Move 2
Move 3
Move 4

Swords Dance and sweep is the purpose of the moveset. With one Swords Dance, Kingler's Hyper Beam OHKOes Chansey and will sometimes OHKO a full-health Starmie. Starmie is one of Kingler's biggest counters, but once it's paralyzed, Kingler gets a decent chance to dispose of it, although Starmie remains amazing at getting critical hit Thunderbolts. Kingler really can't be used early in the game--he can't switch into things too well, especially special attacks. He isn't exactly fast, and Thunderbolt is very common, which means many healthy Pokemon can kill him. He's best used as a late-game sweeper, like most things with Swords Dance. It is probably better to use Crabhammer for the critical hit rate rather than Surf, even though the former is inaccurate, due to his low Special.

 

Other Options

Blizzard can perhaps be useful, but his Special is horrible, so it'll do pathetic damage even when it's super effective. Guillotine can work, but only if OHKO moves aren't banned.

 

Checks and Counters

Gengar takes little from Surf and nothing from Body Slam, making him the best Kingler counter you can have. Exeggutor easily takes the Water attacks, and his defense allows him to shrug off a boosted Body Slam in order to get a Sleep Powder in. Venusaur can do the same thing, although his defenses aren't quite as stellar. Kingler easily falls to special attacks, so Zapdos and Jolteon are good Pokemon to switch into it with their STAB super effective attacks and ability to outspeed it.

 

In UU, Tangela resists Water and can paralyze with Stun Spore or set up with Growth and Mega Drain. Golduck can Amnesia in its face, although it doesn't like a Swords Dance-boosted Body Slams. Electabuzz can threaten with STAB Thunderbolt if you can get it in, and the same can be said about Magneton.
