Crabrawler

Crabrawler is a Fighting type Pokémon introduced in Generation 7. It is known as the Boxing Pokémon.

Crabrawler has a personality that really hates to lose, and it's driven not only to aim for a higher position than its fellows in terms of social standing, but literally to aim for a higher position in the landscape.

Crabrawler punches the trunks of trees to give the branches a good shake and knock any ripe Berries to the ground so it can feast.

Pokédex entries

Sun While guarding its weak points with its pincers, it looks for an opening and unleashes punches. When it loses, it foams at the mouth and faints.
Moon It punches so much, its pincers often come off from overuse, but they grow back quickly. What little meat they contain is rich and delicious.
Ultra Sun Its hard pincers are well suited to both offense and defense. Fights between two Crabrawler are like boxing matches.
Ultra Moon Crabrawler has been known to mistake Exeggutor for a coconut tree and climb it. The enraged Exeggutor shakes it off and stomps it.
