Trapinch (Japanese: ナックラー Nuckrar) is a Ground-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

Biology

Physiology

Trapinch appears to be an orange bug with a large head and jaws as well as a white underside. Trapinch also has short stubby legs along with twinkles found in its eyes.

Special abilities

Trapinch has the abilities Hyper Cutter and Arena Trap along with the hidden ability Sheer Force.
