Pinsir (Japaneseカイロス Kailios) is a Bug-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

While it is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon, it can Mega Evolve into Mega Pinsir using the Pinsirite.

Biology

Pinsir is a bipedal Pokémon with a wide, dull brown body and a large pair of gray, spiky pincers on top of its head. In its mouth are many long, flat teeth arranged horizontally. Its legs are short and thick while its arms are long and thin, and each limb ends with three grey claws. Pinsir's limbs and abdomen are divided into segments. Its eyes are simple, but usually appear angry.

 

As Mega Pinsir, it gains a large pair of clear wings with an area of orange venation. Additionally, a set of wing coverings appear. On each wing cover is a pair of large, thin, orange blades. Its arms become longer and more segmented, with triangular extensions on its lower arms. The pincers on its head are now longer with larger spikes, and its eyes are now yellow. When it Mega Evolves, Pinsir is left in a constant state of excitement. Mega Pinsir can travel up to 30 mph and uses its two large horns to pierce its enemies before shredding them.

It can use its pincers to crush, toss, bludgeon, or tear opponents, lift things twice its weight, and shatter logs. Captured prey is kept in place by the piercing thorns and sheer strength of Pinsir's horns, and will not be released until they are torn in half. In addition to hunting prey, the anime has shown that it enjoys tree sap. Pinsir lives deep in the forest, where it burrows underground or hides in the treetops on nights cold enough to render it immobile.

In Alola, it has a rivalry with Vikavolt.

Generation I  
Red If it fails to crush the victim in its pincers, it will swing it around and toss it hard.
Blue
Yellow Grips its prey in its pincers and squeezes hard! It can't move if it's cold, so it lives in warm places.

Trivia

  • Pinsir can be seen as a parallel to Scyther. Both are Bug-type Generation I Pokémon. Pinsir is exclusive to BlueLeafGreen, and Pearl, while Scyther is exclusive to Red, FireRed, and Diamond.
    • Pinsir can also be seen as a counterpart to Heracross. Both are Bug-type Pokémon based on beetles and lack an evolutionary family. Pinsir is not part Fighting like Heracross, but it learns several Fighting-type moves by leveling up. Both Pokémon and their Mega Stones are version exclusives in Pokémon X and Y: Pinsir and Pinsirite are exclusive to X while Heracross and Heracronite are exclusive to Y. Each Mega Stone can be found in Santalune Forest in its respective version. The heights of both Pokémon are the same, even when Mega Evolved.
  • Mega Pinsir is tied with Mega HeracrossMega Scizor and Genesect for the highest base stat total of all Bug-type Pokémon.
  • Pinsir shares its category with Vikavolt. They are both known as the Stag Beetle Pokémon.
  • Pinsir, along with Scyther and Scizor, are the only Pokémon legitimately available in all 27 in-game Poké Ball variants.

Origin

It is based on a stag beetle, possibly Prosopocoilus inclinatus, a species commonly used in insect fighting. Its thornlike mandibles most closely resemble that of Lucanus maculifemoratus hopei, whereas its Mega Evolution's diagonal spikes resemble Calcodes versicolor.

Name origin

Pinsir is a corruption of pincer, referring to its horns.

Kailios may be a combination of the Greek letter Χ (カイ kai) and cross (referring to its scissor-like horns). Alternatively, it may be a combination of 傀 kai (large), 魁偉 kaii (brawny), or 刈 kai (cut) combined with κοριός korios (Greek for bug).
