Corphish (Pokémon)

928 bytes added, 1 September
Corphish is a red-shelled, crustacean Pokémon with a short tail similar to a lobster. Its eyes are saucer-like with small pupils, and it has three spikes on top of its head. It possesses four pairs of limbs in total: two large pincers used for gripping prey, and three pairs of legs used for walking. The upper segments of its legs, underside of its body and lower halves of its pincers are cream-colored.
A hardy creature, Corphish is able to live in {{DL|List of Pokémon by habitat|Water's-edge Pokémon|polluted water}} and eat nearly anything. Though not native to [[Alola]], Corphish set free by Trainers herethere have easily adapted and thrived in the region. {{p|Feebas}} and Corphish are the only Pokémon known to be able to live in stagnant ditches.

Based on its {{game|Ruby and Sapphire|s|Ruby}} [[Pokédex]] entry, Corphish is probably based on the {{wp|Procambarus clarkii|red swamp crayfish}}, which, like Corphish, are invasive pests in many areas.
