Crab-Pokémon Klawf showcased and takes over internet

We need this crab now.

The latest trailer for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet showcased a new Pokémon, Klawf, the rock-type crab Pokémon, which has made an impression on the internet. Klawf may not become as popular as Lechonk, but the hard-shell critter has won a place in our hearts.

The Seek Your Treasure trailer for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet was uploaded to The Pokémon Company's YouTube channel and revealed the new Pokémon. Klawf appears to be a part of the game's story, as the protagonist is seen aiding upper-classman Arven against the Pokémon. It also revealed Klawf as a Titan Pokémon.

Klawf has a great design, particularly its suspicious-looking eyes, as seen in the trailer when the Titan Klawf turns on the player and Arven. It also sports some comical blushing and poofy hair that adds to its humourous appearance.

Klawf has a unique ability introduced in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet called Anger Shell. This ability triggers when Klawf's health, lowering its Defense and Special Defense while increasing its Attack, Special Attack, and Speed. This makes Klawf a formidable wall that can switch to a sweeper quickly.
