  2. His colors are really pretty. If you asked me we didn't need any more crab-like Pokemon, but I still think Clauncher is cool. I hope he gets a big evolution, maybe something like Crawdaunt.
  3. I can sort of see this Pokemon becoming a part fighting or steel type, but besides that, I really like it. I don't really like too many crustacean Pokemon, but this one I like because of the coloration, which has always bugged me with others like Kingler and Crawdaunt.
  4. Wow, this guy is awesome! I like the colors he has on him (Dat blue). I'm hoping that Clauncher gets an epic evolution, because I love Corphish and Crawdaunt and this definitely reminds me of it.

    Definitely a candidate for my final team in X/Y.
  5. Does Clauncher remind anyone else of Dunsparce? Maybe it's just the color scheme, but that's the pokemon Claucher reminds me of from the older games. I think Clauncher has the potential to be really interesting, especially if Nintendo actually gives it a good evolution as well.
