Voice actor: Rikako Aikawa (both English and Japanese)

Kingler is a crab-like Pokémon with four legs, two arms, and two powerful pincers. The upper half of its body and its pincers are orange, while the bottom half and legs are cream colored. Kingler has spikes on its head, and has a large lower jaw with teeth-like bumps. Its left pincer is particularly larger than its right pincer. Its height is 4'03" and weight is 132.3 lbs.

Special AbilitiesEdit

Kingler's left pincer boasts 10,000 horsepower of crushing force, but its massive weight makes it difficult for Kingler to aim with.

Since Kingler are fully evolved Pokémon, they are capable of using Hyper Beam and Giga Impact.


They wave their huge claw in the air to communicate with others. However, because the claw is so heavy, the Pokémon quickly tires.


It can be presumed that, like its pre-evolution, Kingler live in beaches. It is found in Kanto and Johto.
