Capsukela's Phoenixdex Entry
Poké ball mimic! ...another one
! Capsukela bury themselves in dirt, leaving only their pincers exposed as a lure. People and Pokémon who get too close find themselves on the receiving end of one hell of a pinch.
It's more than just a standard poké ball mimic, though. Rather than simply pretending to be a dropped item on the ground, as with Voltorb, Foongus or the ball pythons, Capsukela actually doubles as Accolanto's obligatory "roadblock" Pokémon. A delivery truck spills its cargo of poké balls all over the road after an accident, and a wild female Capsukela finds her way into the mess (likely under the impression that the poké balls are itty-bitty baby Capsukela) and refuses to come out—and since the driver is too scared of getting his arm torn off to try digging her out, it's probably up to the player to find a way to locate the scorpion hiding in the spilled items and drive her off. (Or catch her. Capsukela's stats aren't half bad, so it might be worth a spin in battle, too.)
