Crustle (Japanese: イワパレス Iwapalace) is a dual-type Bug/Rock Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

It evolves from Dwebble starting at level 34.

Contents

Biology

Crustle without its rock

Crustle is an orange Pokémon resembling an insect or crustacean. Its most distinguishing feature is its enormous shell, which resembles a cut-away block of sediment with multiple layers and strata visible. The tips of its pincers and six feet are dark gray. It has two glaring yellow eyes. Crustle possesses a straight tail that is concealed underneath its shell. It is very strong, to the point that it can carry heavy rocks for a long time, even through arid lands where it resides. It fights members of its species over territory in battles which can become very vicious. If its shell breaks during such a fight, it loses. When Crustle's shell breaks, it will become weaker and unsure of itself.

Trivia

Origin

Crustle is based on a hermit crab. Its shell resembles a block of stratum rather than an actual shell, though the design also seems to resemble ornately-colored hermit crab shells.

Name origin

Crustle may a combination of crust, crab, or crumble, and mantle or castle. It may also involve crustacean.

Iwapalace is a combination of 岩 iwa (rock) and palace.
