Number 099: Kingler, the Pincer Pokémon. Height: 4'3", Weight: 132.0lbs.

Red and Blue Yellow Gold Silver Crystal
The large pincer
has 10000 hp of
crushing power.
However, its huge
size makes it
unwieldy to use.
One claw grew
massively and as
hard as steel.
It has 10,000-HP
strength. However,
it is too heavy.
It can hardly
lift its massive,
overgrown pincer.
The pincer's size
makes it difficult
to aim properly.
Its pincers grow
peculiarly large.
If it lifts the
pincers too fast,
it loses its bal-
ance and staggers.
Its oversized claw
is very powerful,
but when it's not
in battle, the
claw just gets in
the way.
