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

It is resurrected from a Dome Fossil and evolves into Kabutops starting at level 40.

Biology

Kabuto is a small Pokémon with a large brown shell covering its body. There are two small eyes facing upwards on the outside of its shell, which it uses for sight when it hides on the ocean floor. The structure of its body is almost entirely unknown, except its four short, yellow legs and luminescent red eyes on its underside. Having been thought extinct as of roughly 300 million years ago, in modern days, most living Kabuto are resurrected from Dome Fossils.

Although Kabuto have been found fossilized by way of lying on the ocean floor for millennia, on rare occasions, it has been found still living. In its original time, it was prominently found on beaches, likely aided by its fast and powerful swimming ability. As seen in the anime, Kabuto prefer seclusion and can be very territorial.

Major appearances

Kabuto was one of the Fossil Pokémon that attacked Ash and Team Rocket until being scared off by an Aerodactyl in Attack of the Prehistoric Pokémon.

 

In Shell Shock!, a "deranged old man" named Umberto was saying that an island full of Kabuto Fossils would sink once the moon casted a red glow. He was right, because the Fossils came to life and the island collapsed, since the Fossils kept the island together.

In Dealing With Defensive Types!, a Kabuto, along with an Omanyte and Omastar, attacked Team Rocket in the Canalave Gym.

Minor appearances

Bill was trapped in a Kabuto costume at the beginning of Mystery at the Lighthouse.

A Kabuto appeared in a fantasy in A Ruin with a View and Where's Armaldo?.

A Kabuto appeared in the opening of Lucario and the Mystery of Mew.

A Mirage Kabuto appeared in a flashback in The Mastermind of Mirage Pokémon.

A Kabuto appeared in Wild in the Streets!.

A Kabuto Fossil is seen in A Night in the Nacrene City Museum! as an exhibit in the Nacrene City Museum.

Two Kabuto appeared in The Tiny Caretaker!.

Trivia

Origin

Kabuto's design consists of a mix of trilobite and the still-living (but considered a living fossil) horseshoe crab.

Name origin

Kabuto is derived from 兜蟹 kabutogani (horseshoe crab). 兜 Kabuto is also the Japanese word for helmet, specifically the traditional helmets samurai wear.
