Crustle (イワパレス) is the 64th Pokémon in the Unova Pokédex. It is a Bug/Rock Type and it is known as the Stone Home Pokémon.

Crustle can use one of two Abilities: Sturdy, which prevents it from being KO'd when it has maximum HP, and protects it from falling to One-Hit KO moves; or Shell Armor, which protects it from taking a Critical Hit. A third Ability is available to Crustle from the Dream World, the Weak Armor Ability. Using this Ability, with each attack that it gets hit by, its Defense falls by one stage, but its Speed increases by one stage.

Dwebble can evolve into Crustle at Level 34.

Crustle is in the Egg Groups Bug and Mineral, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Crustle One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.

[edit] Competitive Battling

Crustle is a viable option in the Rarely-Utilized and Over-Utilized Tiers of Competitive Battling. Like many other Rock-types, it has a high Attack and higher Defense, but is hindered by low Speed and a relatively low Special Defense. The Sturdy Ability is the best possible competitive battling option due to its use for team support, especially for setting up entry hazards such as Stealth Rock and Spikes. With Trick Room support, Crustle becomes a very dangerous sweeper. But the time it has to set up these hazards is limited, especially against Special Sweepers and/or if matched up against a Bulky Water-Type.
