Krabby resembles a crab. Krabby's top half is a hard shell that is orange in color, with two protrusions atop it. The lower half of its body is cream-colored, with fang-like protrusions below the mouth; Krabby's four legs and two arms are also cream-colored. Krabby has a pair of large pincers that it uses as powerful weapons or for balance purposes when it walks sideways.
If a Krabby loses a pincer in battle, it will completely grow back in a short period of time.
On beaches where food is hard to come by, Krabby can be seen squabbling with each other over territory. When Krabby sense imminent danger, they will cloak themselves with bubbles from its mouth in an attempt at looking bigger and more intimidating.
Krabby live on beaches, burrowed inside holes dug into the sand. They are normally found in Kanto and Johto.
Krabby are known as scavengers and feed on whatever debris they happen upon in their environment. If food is too scarce, Krabby will also eat mouthfuls of sand to obtain nutrients.
