Krabby lives in and nearby fresh and salt water but is most commonly found on sandy beaches, burrowed under the sand. Its huge red claws are a great help to it as they work as a powerful weapon against predators or challengers and they help maintain balance.

  • Despite the name, Krabbies are reasonably calm and friendly, but will quickly attack if provoked or threatened
  • Although only 1’4”, Krabby has an attack stat of 105, that’s the same as Hitmonchan and Aerodactyl!
  • Krabby have a 50% divide in males and females. So they are fairly common as they can hatch a high number of eggs at a time
  • If challenged by another Pokémon for their trainer, Krabbies would rather burrow away for protection than fight in the wild
