Crabrawler and Crabominable are two Pokemon that were released in Gen 7 to mixed reviews and brought back for Pokemon Scarlet & Violet. While some were charmed by these boxing glove coconut crabs, many were quick to point out the flaws in its design and stats.

Unfortunately, despite its unique Fighting/Ice-typing, Crabominable does not do so well competitively because of its low bulk and mediocre stats. Despite this, it is a beloved Pokemon available to catch in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet.

Crabrawler uses a tried and true evolution method, the Ice Stone. Exposing a Crabrawler to an Ice Stone at any level will evolve it into Crabominable, so there is no need to level a Crabrawler through the usual methods.

Crabominable, unlike its pre-evolution Crabrawler, can only be caught in one location. For this reason, it may be wise for players to evolve a Crabrawler rather than wait to encounter a Crabominable in the wild. That being said, Crabominables encountered in the wild will have reasonably high levels that require less grinding to level up.

It has a five percent chance of holding the Cheri Berry, a reddish berry that can be fed to a Pokemon to cure paralysis. If a Pokemon is holding a Cheri Berry when an opponent uses a paralyzing move, it will instantly cure itself, requiring no extra move.

  • Glaseado Mountain

It can also be found in four-star Tera raids.
