How to evolve crabrawler in pokémon sun and moon

Evolving a Pokemon is usually as easy as training that critter up until it hits a specific level.

Things are never easy, though, are they? A number of Pokemon in Sun and Moon will only evolve under very specific circumstances.

In this article, we list those circumstances. Aren’t we nice?

Rattata – Raticate How to evolve crabrawler in pokémon sun and moon

If Rattata levels up to level 20 or higher while it’s night time in the game, you’ll get Raticate.

Sandshrew – Sandslash How to evolve crabrawler in pokémon sun and moon

Give Sandshrew an Ice Stone and it will evolve into Sandslash at the next level. You can get one of these stones at the Poke Pelego, or in Po Town on Ula’ula. It’s by the swimming pool, accessed via Shady House.

Vulpix – Ninetales How to evolve crabrawler in pokémon sun and moon

Same as above. Give Vulpix that Ice Stone to unlock Ninetales.

Magneton – Magnezone How to evolve crabrawler in pokémon sun and moon

Magneton is one of a handful of Pokemon who will unlock a special evolution if you level up at Vast Poni Canyon, which is on Poni island.

Cubone – Marowak How to evolve crabrawler in pokémon sun and moon

Get Cubone to level 20, or higher, when it’s night time in Alola to turn this Pokemon into Marowak.

Nosepass – Probopass How to evolve crabrawler in pokémon sun and moon

Level Nosepass up while in Vast Poni Canyon to get this evolution.

Yungoos – Gumshoos

How to evolve crabrawler in pokémon sun and moon

Yungoos must become level 20, or higher, during the day time to become Gumshoos.

Charjabug – Vikavolt How to evolve crabrawler in pokémon sun and moon

Like Nosepass, you need to level Charjabug up while fighting trainers or wild Pokemon at Vast Poni Canyon.

Crabrawler – Crabominable How to evolve crabrawler in pokémon sun and moon

This special evolution will only happen if you level this Pokemon up while at the top of Mount Lanakila, which is on Ula’ula Island.

Rockruff – Lycanroc

How to evolve crabrawler in pokémon sun and moon

This can go one of two ways. First, Rockruff must hit level 25 (or higher). If it’s day time and you’re playing Pokemon Sun you’ll get Lycanroc’s Midday Form. If it’s night and you’re on Moon you’ll get the Midnight form.

Salandit – Salazzle How to evolve crabrawler in pokémon sun and moon

Salandit turns into Salazzla at level 33 – but only if that Pokemon is female. If your Salandit is male you’re stuck in adolescence forever. Ouch.

Steenee – Tsareena

How to evolve crabrawler in pokémon sun and moon

If Steenee knows the move stomp, and then levels up, it will turn into Tsareena. Steenee can learn stomp at level 29 so make sure you don’t skip that move!

Crabrawler (Japanese: マケンカニ Makenkani) is a Fighting-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VII.



Crabrawler is a crustacean Pokémon resembling a crab. Most of its shell is purple with blue and yellow accents. It has two long, yellow antennae over its eyes. One blue eyelid is usually half-closed, giving it the appearance of a black eye. The purple shell covering its body appears to be made of three parts: two plain plates covering the shoulders and part of the chest and one plate covered in blue stripes across its underside. A large portion of its yellow body is visible down the center of its chest and a tiny spot is visible in the center of its back. Crabrawler has three pairs of legs. The two rear pairs are smaller with yellow joints and blue tips. The foremost pair of legs has large blue pincers resembling boxing gloves. There is a small amount of meat in its claws, which is considered delicious.

A competitive Pokémon that hates to lose, this Pokémon uses its large claws as protection for its face and belly while it closes in on opponents. Crabrawler’s pincers sometimes break off from overuse, but they grow back quickly. Crabrawler strives to achieve not only a high social standing, but a physically higher position as well. It can be found clinging to buildings or even tall people, and will punch anyone who attempts to remove it from its perch. In the event that it does lose, its mouth will foam before it faints.

While it is capable of splitting tree trunks, it usually punches trees to knock down ripe berries. Many Crabrawler will gather around a tree to compete for the ripe berries. [1] Crabrawler also preys on Exeggcute. It has been known to mistake Exeggutor for coconut trees, which shake and stomp Crabrawler off when climbed.

Alola’s a big place, so to help you get started on the road, here are some useful tips.

Free Space¶

(1 of 2) Never lose your Full Restores again!

Never lose your Full Restores again! (left), (right)

As you travel the region, you’ll end up picking up a lot of items. Now, the good thing is that you’ll never, ever run out of space to put items in your magical bag. The bad thing is that it can be difficult to find something you want in a pinch.

To make your life easier, there’s a “Free Space” compartment towards the end of your bag, where you can place frequently used or important items. Simply select an item in any compartment and choose the “Move to Free Space” option. If you need help looking for a particular item, you can also press the X button to sort by name, etc.

Easy Experience Boosts¶

Need help increasing your Pokémon’s levels quicker? If so, there are a few ways.

Firstly, Pokémon traded to you from another player will gain 50% more experience points; this has been the case since the original games. Moreover, if the traded Pokémon is from a different language version, it will gain 70% more experience instead.

The bad thing is that if the traded Pokémon is too high level, then it won’t obey you. Check your Trainer Passport to see the level limits.

Secondly, any Pokémon with an Affection level of 2 hearts or higher in Pokémon Refresh earns 20% more experience points. This is pretty easy to achieve; a dozen or so rubs and Poké Beans can get you there. If you’ve got any Rainbow Beans from Poké Pelago, you’ll be laughing.

Finally, once you’ve beaten the game, you can get a Lucky Egg from Professor Kukui in his research lab. When a Pokémon holds this item, it will earn 50% more experience points. That said, this scenario may be pretty far off.

Other things to consider include using the Exp. Share item, which gives all non-battling Pokémon in your party 50% of the experience points. Meanwhile, all Pokémon that battled against a particular Pokémon receive the full 100% experience points, even if they didn’t score the KO.


The game doesn’t really make this clear, but Pokémon have a hidden Happiness stat, which has nothing to do with the Affection stat in Pokémon Refresh. This mainly affects Pokémon that evolve after reaching certain Happiness and the moves Return and Frustration. You can increase a Pokémon’s Happiness via the following methods:

  • Keeping them in your party and walking around.
  • Increasing the Pokémon’s Level.
  • Making them hold the Soothe Bell item.
  • Feeding them a Malasada, especially of a flavor they like.
  • Giving them a massage in Konikoni City.
  • Letting them relax in Poké Pelago’s Isle Avue.
  • Feeding them berries that decrease stats (EVs).

Delaying Evolution¶

It’s always a marvelous sight to see a Pokémon evolve, especially as they grow stronger. However, there are times when it may be beneficial to wait just a bit longer before evolving your Pokémon.

Firstly, evolved Pokémon generally learn moves at a slower pace compared to their their unevolved counterparts. That said, having your Pokémon remain in a weaker form isn’t exactly an ideal scenario either. Indeed, for the most part, you’ll be fine evolving ASAP.

That is unless your Pokémon requires an evolution stone to evolve, in which case it’s entirely possible they won’t learn any moves after they evolve. So you’d better have all the moves you want already or TMs available to teach new moves.

Some Pokémon also learn exclusive moves at late levels in their unevolved forms. One such offender is Oddish, which learns Moonblast at Level 43, but none of its evolved forms learn this powerful Fairy-type move…

Crabrawler — Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Today’s Pokemon Card Review is of Crabrawler from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set. Crabrawler is a Basic, Fighting type Pokemon card with a HP of 80. It has a x2 weakness to Psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two Colorless Energy card retreat cost. Crabrawler does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. Crabrawler’s first move is called Punch, for two Colorless Energy cards this move does 20 damage. Crabhammer is the second move that this card has it does 40 damage for three Energy cards, two Colorless and one Fighting.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Crabrawler is a Basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Crabominable, which I reviewed from this set previously, since it is a Water type Pokemon, I can summarize the two cards at the end of this section. Looking at Crabrawler on its own, even though it has an above average HP and two moves, I wouldn’t use it as a starter type Pokemon because it is slower on the attack, unless you’re using a Double Colorless Energy card, plus its Crabhammer move does well below average damage for the amount of Energy required. Because of this, and knowing that Crabominable from this set required Water type Energy cards to attack, and is slow on the attack. I would again, recommend this entire line as a whole, but would set up the line on the Bench, therefore never moving Crabrawler to the active Pokemon spot. Crabominable can both do major damage and spread damage around with its moves, so I would recommend this line for a Water type deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating. So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Crabominable, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card, like I mentioned above, this card has a good HP but its retreat cost is fairly high and it is slow to set up. Combined with Crabominable from this set, which I gave a 4 out of 5 rating, I would give these two Pokemon combined that same 4 rating, I think Crabominable is that good and is worth using in a spread attack type deck.

Tomorrow’s Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today’s Pokemon card review of Crabrawler from the Sun and Moon set, stay tuned for tomorrow’s card review of Passimian, which is from this same set. Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!

The Pokemon Company releases a new trailer for Pokemon Sun and Moon, revealing the new Pokemon Crabrawler, Sandygast, Palossand, and Stufful and their abilities.

The Pokemon Company releases a new trailer for Pokemon Sun and Moon, revealing the new Pokemon Crabrawler, Sandygast, Palossand, and Stufful and their abilities.

Just yesterday, The Pokemon Company introduced the gaming world to Turtonator, an impressive fire/dragon type Pokemon that will be making its debut in the upcoming Pokemon Sun and Moon. Today, The Pokemon Company announced four additional Pokemon that will be debuting alongside Turtonator this fall, and all of them are highlighted in a brand new trailer.

The first new Pokemon shown in the latest trailer for Pokemon Sun and Moon somehow managed to avoid being leaked beforehand. Its name is Crabrawler, and it is a fighting type crab Pokemon with claws that look like boxing gloves. Some may be confused as to why a Pokemon based on a crab is a fighting type instead of a water type, but it appears as though Crabrawler is based on the coconut crab, which is known for its inability to swim.

The trailer also confirms three Pokemon for Pokemon Sun and Moon that were previously leaked. Those Pokemon include a couple that look like sandcastles: the ghost/ground type Sandygast and its evolved form, Palossand. The idea of a Pokemon based on a sandcastle may sound ridiculous to some, but Sandygast and Palossand could turn out to be pretty useful against water type Pokemon thanks to their Water Compaction ability.

Besides Sandygast and Palossand, another leaked Pokemon gets its official confirmation in the new trailer as well. In the trailer, players are given a better look at Stufful, a goofy-looking bear Pokemon that eventually evolves into Bewear. Stufful resembles a stuffed animal, complete with a “tail” that looks just like a tag.

With the reveal of Crabrawler and the official announcement of Sandygast, Palossand, and Stufful, the total number of new Pokemon debuting in Pokemon Sun and Moon has reached 39. That number doesn’t even include the Alolan forms of Gen 1 Pokemon that trainers will also be able to catch in the games, so Pokemon Sun and Moon should have plenty of unique creatures for players to capture during their adventure in the Alola region.

There’s still three months to go until Pokemon Sun and Moon launches worldwide, so expect Nintendo to continue to reveal new Pokemon for the games in the meantime. It’s unclear at this point just how many Pokemon are being created for the games, but between the brand new pocket monsters and interesting twists on familiar creatures, it seems like Pokemon Sun and Moon will have no shortage of Pokemon for fans to discover.

Pokemon Sun and Moon will be available on November 18th, exclusively for Nintendo 3DS.

How to evolve crabrawler in pokémon sun and moon

Eevee is an interesting Pokemon. This boring little scamp can evolve into lots of different monsters, depending on various factors.

There are no new Eevee evolutions in Sun and Moon, but all new ways to get critters like Espeon, Leafeon, and Sylveon – plus, new places to find the Thunder Stone, and whatnot, needed for the other Pokemon.

Here’s how to get ’em all.

How to evolve crabrawler in pokémon sun and moon

Eevee becomes Jolteon if this little critter levels up while holding a Thunder Stone. Question is: where can I get my mitts on one of those magical-sounding gems?

Luckily for you, there are three ways to get one. A Thunder Stone is found hiding behind the caravan at Route 8’s Fossil Restoration Center. And you can get more at the Poké Pelago, or in the shop in Konikoni City for 3000 credits.

How to evolve crabrawler in pokémon sun and moon

Same as before, but this time with the Water Stone. And you can find a freebie on Route 8, in the water south of the small island.

If you need more you’ll need to win mini games on the Poké Pelago or spend 3000 credits in Konikoni City.

How to evolve crabrawler in pokémon sun and moon

One more easy eeveelution (see what we did there?) – just give Eevee a Fire Stone and level that sucker up.

This hot rock can be found in the north west corner of Diglett’s Tunnel – just use Tauros to bust it out. Also, Fire Stones are found on Poké Pelago and can be bought in Konikoni City for 3000 credits.

How to evolve crabrawler in pokémon sun and moon

To get Espeon, you need to give Eevee a high happiness value. Which is easier said than done.

Catch Eevee in a Friend or Luxury Ball for a good start, and then give it a Soothe Bell item, and level Eevee up, use vitamins, teach it moves, and feed it Hondew, Qualot, and Tamato berries.

If you wanna cheat the system, get two TMs that Eevee can learn and then teach it one TM. Then replace that move with the other TM. And then replace it with the first TM. And so on for a few minutes. Each time you raise happiness.

To check the Happiness of your Pokémon, you need to visit the market in Konikoni City. A person there will tell you Eevee’s Happiness Value – if it’s over 220 and you then level up Eevee during the day, you’ll get Espeon.

How to evolve crabrawler in pokémon sun and moon

If you do all the same as before but let Eevee level up during the night, you’ll get Umbreon instead.

How to evolve crabrawler in pokémon sun and moon

First things first, Eevee needs to know a Fairy type move. It learns Baby-Doll Eyes at level 9 and Charm at 29. And it can’t learn any Fairy type TMs.

If you’ve done that, boot up Pokemon Refresh (which is found in the menu) and get Eevee to two affection hearts.

Petting your Pokémon will give you a small boost, and feeding them Poke Beans will also help. Once it has two hearts and a fairy move you’ll get Sylveon next time Eevee levels up.

How to evolve crabrawler in pokémon sun and moon

Put Eevee in your party and head to Lush Jungle – which is near Route 8 on Akala Island.

Inside, find the green rock that says “the surface is covered with moss. It feels soft to the touch”. Now fight wild Pokemon in the area until Eevee levels up – and it will evolve into Leafeon.

How to evolve crabrawler in pokémon sun and moon

Same deal as Leafeon, just with a different rock. This time, go to the Pokemon League, go inside the mountain, and find a frozen rock, which says “It’s a rock that is covered in ice. Touching it seems likely to freeze you solid!”

Now wander around, get into fights, and level up Eevee to turn it into Glaceon.

Crabrawler has been known to mistake Exeggutor for a coconut tree and climb it. The enraged Exeggutor shakes it off and stomps it.

Its hard pincers are well suited to both offense and defense. Fights between two Crabrawler are like boxing matches.
