Kabutops (Japanese: カブトプス Kabutopusu) is a Water/Rock-type Fossil Pokémon introduced in Generation I.


Kabuto's four insect-like legs have vanished and two long feet stand in their place. Two long sharp claws (or sickles) extend from Kabutops's exoskeleton and several plates close the opening that used to be there. There are six hard spikes going down from the back of its neck, three on each side that lead down towards the beginning of its tail. Its head is covered in a rock hard, semicircular shape armor. A tail protrudes from its back, bearing the same color as approximately seventy-five percent of its body.


Kabutops is the evolved form of Kabuto, as of level 40.

In the anime

There is a suggestion in an episode from the first season of Pokémon,Attack of the Prehistoric Pokémon,that Kabutops are very territorial, and have short tempers. This is supported by how Ash was attacked by one. Of course this is, however, just a suggestion, as the others were angered by Ash "dropping in" as well.

Kabutops has made several appearances in episodes, and even in the special The Mastermind of Mirage Pokémon as well as Pokemon Heroes The Movie as a prehistoric Pokémon revived from fossils, attacking Altomare with Aerodactyl.
