A Crustle without its shell.

Crustle is a red and brown colored crab-like Pokémon with a large block of stone that resembles a sedimentary rock on its back that it uses as a shell. The rocky shell is striped with various shades of brown and orange. Its body is red-orange, and it has six small legs, as well as two large front claws.

Like its pre-evolution, Dwebble, Crustle is able to come out of its shell.

Appearances

Anime

Shortly after being sent into battle against Team Rocket, Cilan's Dwebble evolved into Crustle and used its newly learned Rock Wrecker to defeat Jessie's Woobat.

Trivia

  • Crustle is July on the Pokémon Horoscope.
  • Crustle is slower than its pre-evolution Dwebble.

Origin

Like its pre-evolution, Dwebble, Crustle is based on a hermit crab.

Etymology

Crustle's English name appears to be a portmanteau of crust, mantle, which are the first two layers of the Earth's surface and crustacean.
