Crustashot Crabuchet by T-Reqs Crustashot Crabuchet by T-Reqs
I actually was going to make a regular slingshot and catapult into Fakemon, but as I was experimenting, I joked about making a crab that could fire a slingshot, and the idea stuck. The names are just placeholders- PLEASE come up with some better ones for me. These are just horrible.

Based on blue crabs, slingshots, and catapults.



-Crustashot (Crustacean + Slingshot)
Species- Slingshot Pokemon
Type- Rock
Ability- Sniper/Skill Link
Egg Group- Bug/Water 3
Amber Pokedex Entry- In the wild, Crustashot tie sinew made from vines and their own saliva to their claws. Trained Crustashott use a special elastic for their claws.
Chrome Pokedex Entry- Crustashot keep a stockpile of rocky pebbles in their large claw to fire at their foes. When they run out of rocks, they become very anxious.

HP- ***
Attack- ***
Defense- ***
Sp. Attack- *
Sp. Defense- *
Speed- **



-Crabuchet (Crab + Trubuchet)
Species- Siege Pokemon
Type- Rock
Ability- Sniper/Skill Link
Egg Group- Bug/Water 3
Amber Pokedex Entry- Crabuchet were often trained by knights in order to siege the castles of their enemies. Theses huge Pokemon can fire off rocks four times their own weight.
Chrome Pokedex Entry- A boulder thrown by a Crabuchet can reduce a building to rubble. They never stray far from an ample supply of ammo.

HP- ***
Attack- ****
Defense- *****
Sp. Attack- *

These guys are very old, and are likely to be remade. Thanks for the heads-up, I'll be sure to change that up when I revisit these guys.

"Crabuchet" is a blood fantastic name and I would use it just because of that.

When I saw these awesome guys, I immediately thought of Clawgrip from Super Mario Brothers 2! One of my favorite bosses in the game. He throws rocks as well! XD
[link]

I personally like the names as they are, but here we go...
Here's a few random ones I came up with XD
Clawling - claw + fling
Griperth - grip + earth
Crustarock - crustacean + rock [to go with Crustashot]
Crarock - crab + rock
Rokoss - rock + toss
Pebbgrip - pebble + grip
Bouldstacean - boulder + crustacean

Sorry, I'm not the best with names ^^;;

Great job as always, though :heart:

I actually really, really like Crabuchet, because it almost sounds like the real word, but not quite, which in my opinion are the best pokemon names. How about Crustapult (Crustacean + catapult) or Crabapult (Crab + catapult). Some others: Crabsling, Crabshot, Crustasling

Crabapult was originally Crabuchet's name, but decided to change it.

Crabuchet is an awesome name. I like these guys! My only suggestion was going to be to integrate Crustashot's slingshot into his body as a membrane or something, but then I read your description about the vines. That works, too!

These guys are fine. What's so bad about em?

I don't know. I just don't feel that great about them. I really like them, there's just something about them...

It's like Snake with Sonic, right? You just don't like em.

Any way, every move I can think of leads to Smack Down or Rock Wrecker...
Not a whole lot to come up with on these guys.

Barrage as well. Probably Rock Blast too.

For the names, Crabapult is fine. Crabuchet could become Crustaeshot.

I was just thinking of Crustaeshot.... but I was thinking of it as the next evolution of this one.

I figured since the first one looked more like a slingshot..
