Pinsir (Pokémon)

1 byte added, 4 August
Pinsir is a bipedal, insectoid Pokémon with a wide, dull brown body divided into segments by thin lines. On top of its head is a large pair of gray, spiky pincers on top of its head. In its mouth are many long, flat teeth arranged horizontally and it has triangular eyes. Its legs are short and thick, while its arms are long and thin. It has three claws on each hand and foot; two of its toes face forward and one backward.
Pinsir can use its pincers to crush, toss, bludgeon, or tear opponents, lift things twice its weight, and shatter logs. Captured prey is kept in place by the piercing thorns and sheer strength of Pinsir's horns and will not be released until they are torn in half. In addition to hunting prey, [[EP119|the anime]] has shown that it enjoys tree sap. Pinsir lives deep in the {{DL|List of Pokémon by habitat|Forest Pokémon|temperate forestforests and jungles}}, where it burrows underground or hides in the treetops on nights cold enough to render it immobile. In [[Alola]], it has a rivalry with {{p|Vikavolt}} and gets along with {{p|Heracross}}.
As Mega Pinsir, it gains a large pair of clear, yellow wings with an area of orange {{wp|Insect wing#Venation|venation}} near the base. Additionally, a set of brown wing coverings appear. Slicing through each wing cover is a pair of orange blades. Its arms become longer and it has a T-shaped spike on each forearm. The pincers on its head are now longer with larger spikes, and its eyes are now yellow. When it Mega Evolves, Pinsir is left in a constant state of excitement. Mega Pinsir can travel up to approximately 30 mph (50 km/h) and uses its two large horns to pierce its enemies before shredding them.
