Biological characteristics

Kabutops is amphibious and arthropod-like, resembling a horseshoe crab. Although it lives in water, and can move at high speeds (comparable to a swordfish) by folding its limbs against its body, it comes out of the water to hunt. It bears a striking resemblance to Scyther. Binomial name Limulus polyphemus Linnaeus, 1758 The horseshoe crab, horsefoot, or sauce-pan (Limulus polyphemus, syn. ...

Although it was assumed extinct, the player-character in the Pokémon Red/Blue games had a hand in bringing it 'back to life', and later games referenced their failed reintroduction into the wild. In the animé, however, it and the other 'ancient-type' Pokémon (including Omanyte, Omastar, Kabuto, and Aerodactyl) were all erroneously assumed extinct because they had left the surface world for subterranean caverns for some years.

Kabutops is somewhat underused, despite its attack power being in the top 10 percent of all Pokémon. This may be due to it learning no rock type attacks apart from Ancientpower (which Rock Slide is preferable over due to its higher attack power by many trainers), and its Sp. Attack is weak, meaning water type moves won't do much damage coming from it in comparison to what its other attacks or other water types can do. It also has decent speed, and can be used to hit hard with water- and rock-type moves.


In the anime

  • Kabutops has made three famous appearances so far in the TV show. In the first, Ash and friends wind up on an island that is actually an amusement park run by Team Rocket inhabited by giant robot Pokémon. Among these 'Giant Pokémon' are Zapdos, Moltres, Kabutops, Rhydon, and the final forms of the three starter Pokémon (of Red/Blue): Venusaur, Charizard and Blastoise.
  • In the second appearance, Kabutops was an ancient Pokémon sleeping at the bottom of a canyon along with unevolved form Kabuto and fellow ancients Omanyte and Omastar. When Ash, Pikachu and Team Rocket fall through a hole, the ancients attack. A battle ensues between them and Ash's Charmeleon.
