Kleavor (Japanese: バサギリ Basagiri) is a dual-type Bug/Rock Pokémon introduced during Generation VIII, in Pokémon Legends: Arceus.

In Pokémon Legends: Arceus, it evolves from Scyther when exposed to a Black Augurite; Kleavor can also be found in Blueberry Academy's Terarium. It is one of Scyther's final forms, the other being Scizor.

Biology

Kleavor is a mantis-like insect Pokémon with a craggy exoskeleton featuring a rock-like composition. Its predominantly beige and white body is adorned with numerous black rocky protrusions, including a ring of angular rocks on each of its shoulders, a mask of rock lining its brows down to its jawline, two sharp toe claws on each foot, and a single black shard of rock atop the crown of its head. The large wings present on Scyther's back seem to have atrophied into vestigial features on Kleavor. Most notably, each of Kleavor's two spindly front limbs end in large axe-like appendages made of heavy black rock, capable of causing severe damage to the hardiest of foes. Kleavor swings these appendages to carve and chop down trees, marking its territory.[1] It also uses these heavy stone axes to finish off prey.

Kleavor is an evolution of Scyther caused by Black Augurites, which are said to originate from volcanic regions in Hisui but are now extremely rare. The stones that adorn Kleavor's body often get chipped during fierce fights; larger chips are a sign that it is experienced in battle. Stone shards that fell off Kleavor during the battle were known to have been collected and used by the settlers of Hisui to craft tools.[1] Kleavor is known to be very hostile, and it is best avoided if ever encountered in the wild. Kleavor's nature is described as being rough, crude, and violent.

A special Kleavor is worshiped by the Hisui people as he is descended from one of the ten ancient Pokémon blessed by Arceus. In particular, he is one of the Noble Pokémon who resides in Obsidian Fieldlands watched by a warden.

Kleavor is the only known Pokémon capable of learning the move Stone Axe.

Evolution

Kleavor evolves from Scyther in Hisui. It is one of Scyther's final forms, the other being Scizor. Kleavor only evolves from Scyther in the Hisui region.

Trivia

  • Despite having different base stats, Kleavor, Scizor, and Scyther all have a base stat total of 500 (Scyther has a higher base Speed, whereas Kleavor and Scizor have a higher base Attack and Defense). As such, Kleavor and Scizor are the only Pokémon to not have their base stat total change upon evolving.
  • Kleavor, along with Wyrdeer and Ursaluna, are the first cross-generational evolutions that evolve from the original form rather than the regional form to be introduced since Sylveon in Generation VI.
    • Coincidentally, their pre-evolutions cannot evolve into them outside of their debut game. In Kleavor's case, this is due to the absence of the Black Augurite.
  • Kleavor is the only Pokémon introduced in Pokémon Legends: Arceus that can have the Galar symbol, due to Scyther being able to have it.
  • In the internal code of Legends: Arceus, Kleavor's Hidden Ability is Steadfast instead of Sharpness.
  • Prior to Version 1.2.0 of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, Kleavor's base Attack stat was decreased by 5 points to 130, and its Special Defense stat was increased by 5 to 75. This change was undone when Kleavor became available in those games. Similar occurences happened to Hisuian Zorua and Hisuian Zoroark.
    • Prior to Version 2.0.1, Kleavor was unable to learn Rain Dance via TM, while its pre-evolution could.

Origin

Kleavor may be based on a praying mantis. Due to its coloration, it may be based on a dead leaf mantis in particular. Its stones appear to be based on obsidian, a volcanic glass with a deep black color that produces sharp edges when fractured. The shard on its head resembles a stylized chonmage, a topknot hairstyle worn by samurai and sumo wrestlers, or a 髻 , a Chinese topknot that was worn by men.

Kleavor's overall design, especially its stone axe forelegs, may be inspired by the idiom 蟷螂の斧 tōrō no ono (lit. mantis's axe), a figurative expression that connotes a courageous but doomed resistance​. In Japanese, the alternate name for the mantis is 斧虫 onomushi, literally meaning "axe bug".

Name origin

Kleavor seems to be a corruption of cleaver, or a combination of cleaver and razor.

Basagiri may be a combination of バッサリ bassari (with a single stroke), ばさら basara (acting without restraint; a term used during medieval Japan describing the disregard for the higher ranks), a corruption of berserker, 鉞 masakari (broadaxe), and カマキリ kamakiri (mantis).
