  2. So this...exists.

    I must admit, when I first saw this in-game, I didn't know what to think. I struggled to believe it was even real. It looks a little better with official artwork, but still...wow. I suppose there will be someone out there who like it.
  3. Not to mention what it evolves into. It's a giant made out of rock and a bunch of hands...including a hand head. I'm shocked that this is even real, even more so upon finding that Binacle evolves into something stupider. The only Gen VI Pokemon I despise more are the Pumpkaboo line and Diggersby.
  4. So for real this is like one of my favorite Pokemon of this generation. I remember seeing it when it was leaked but not really paying attention, but then I was smashing rocks in game and I found one and couldn't help but catch it. I figured I'd have it on my team temporarily, just to try out Slash + Sniper, but then she never left. I think if I do another play through I'll probably catch it again :}
  5. Oh.. This is Digglet all over again!! Whats underneath?! Never to know..@.@

    There's actually nothing underneath. Binacle, much like the Japanese Goose Barnacle that it is based on, effectively welds itself (selves?) to a rock using cement glands at the base of (or the tip of, rather) their 'stalks'. That's literally all there is to the creature.

    These things crack me the fuck up. Their irate faces makes me think of Waldorf and Statler, the old cranky critic muppets - and their evolution cracks me up even more. I admit that I did not believe the things were real when they were first leaked... but they're just too hilarious for me to stay mad at them.
  7. Evolve it at level 39 to see for yourself.

    Funny thing, that's the same thought I had.

    Binacle, Barbacle, Tyrantium, and Espurr all fall into the category of these suck (Opinions, some people actually like Espurr, and I like it's evo)
  8. They look like they hate eachother!
  9. Tyrantium is actually cool. Although he sadly didn't go through the elite four( got retired midway through), I still used him and he's a beast
