Here you will find a lot of useful information regarding the Kingler Pokemon, including base stats, gender, location, abilities, Pokemon type, egg group, descriptions within the various Pokemon games, and much more.

While Kingler is still a relatively popular Pokemon, it's not seen as often in the Pokemon anime series as its pre-evolutionary form Krabby.

That's probably due to the fact that Kingler is a little more scary than Krabby himself, and thus more imposing. It's also a lot more powerful than regular Krabby, especially in the newer iterations of the games.
