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.

Species- Slingshot Pokemon
Type- Rock
Ability- Sniper/Skill Link

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.

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

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.
