Kabuto (Japanese: カブト Kabuto) is a dual-type Rock/Water Fossil Pokémon.

It is resurrected from a Dome Fossil and evolves into Kabutops starting at level 40.

Biology

Physiology

Kabuto is similar to a shellfish with a tan shell. There are two small black dots, which are a second pair of eyes, on the front of its shell. Kabuto uses these eyes when it hides deeper in its shell to protect itself from harm. Its black eyes sense what is going on outside of the shell while it is hiding. Underneath its shell is mostly black, with two red eyes, which glow in the dark, and four yellow-tan legs. Its shell turns into the Fossil that is used to resurrect it.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Kabuto and its evolved form, Kabutops, favor using physical moves; whereas the Omanyte line is more adept at special attacks. Kabuto also happens to be slightly faster than Omanyte, while having weaker physical defense. It supposedly also has oils in its shell which can grant immortality.

Behavior

Much like a turtle or pill bug, if Kabuto is flipped over onto its back, it becomes defenseless as it cannot flip itself back over on its own. It mostly attacks using its claws, which can scratch or drain energy.

Habitat

Sea

Sea Pokémon

Although Kabuto are believed to be extinct, living samples have been found deep under the sea. Many are resurrected from Dome Fossils, which can be found in Kanto.
