Denny Sinnoh's "Akihabara Starlight"

boston crab submission

“Mrs. Brown you’ve got a lovely daughter … Girls as sharp as her are somethin’ rare …”

Krabby (in Japanese: クラブ  “Crab” ) is a Water-type Pokémon.

Misty got crabs!

Turns out Misty had crabs!

Krabby evolves into Kingler (in Japanese: キングラー  “Kingler” ) at level 28, where it remains a Water-type. (There is not a Mega-Evolution form for this Pokemon yet — but if there were, I would hope that it would be a water and STEEL dual-type.)

I like to name a Krabby “Herman” as a nod to the British pop band Herman’s Hermits. Hermit crabs, get it? Hermits’ front-man Peter Noonan is great in this vintage clip of “Mrs. Brown You’ve Got a Lovely Daughter”. 

Perhaps, “Mrs. Brown” would be a good name for female Krabbys?

Real hermit crabs are much smaller than Herman’s Hermits, but crabs can make interesting pets.

“Walkin’ about … even in a crowd, well … You’ll pick her out, makes a bloke feel — so proud…”

Another possible name is “Cancer” or “Kancer” after the Zodiac sign of The Crab.

A female could be named “Patty” or “Pattie” after the Craby Patty sandwich from SpongeBob. Mr Krabbs would approve.

I think that “Boston” or “Boston Crab” would be interesting. “The Boston Crab” is a famous wrestling hold. If you ask me, this hold — like most wrestling moves — is better appreciated with lady wrestlers.

I have used the name “Klinger” for Kingler. Klinger was of course the famous character from the American TV show M*A*S*H.

I like the name “KrispyKreme” after the doughnuts, even though it is not crab related. The exoskeletons of a crab are hard and “crisp” like I suppose.

I have also used the name “Alaska” as in Alaska King Crabs.

    The Boston Crab is a painful move, as I learned from watching Wanna Be The Strongest In The World.
