Graveler (Pokémon)

looks nothing like a toad
 
===Origin===
Graveler appears to be based on a {{wp|boulder}}. It also somewhat resembles a {{wp|toad}} and may draw inspiration from the {{wp|Oreophrynella nigra|pebble toad}}. Its four arms may be based on Hindu gods such as {{wp|Shiva}} or {{wp|Vishnu}}.
 
Alolan Graveler seems to have dark structures made of {{wp|Piezoelectricity#Materials|piezoelectric crystals}} or {{wp|magnetite}}, a subset of iron ore known for its black crystalline appearance and magnetic properties. The golden gems may be also inspired by piezoelectric materials, or by {{wp|amber}} and its electrostatic characteristics.
