Kingler is a Water Pokémon which evolves from Krabby. It is vulnerable to Grass and Electric moves. Kingler's strongest moveset is Bubble & Crabhammer and it has a Max CP of 2,829.
"Kingler has an enormous, oversized claw. It waves this huge claw in the air to communicate with others. However, because the claw is so heavy, the Pokémon quickly tires."
Mud Shot is a legacy move, but offers the best energy generation in the game. Bubble takes advantage of STAB to deal significantly more damage than Mud Shot, with still respectable energy gains.
X-Scissor is generally a weak move, but demanding the least amount of energy and providing coverage against Kingler's weakness to Grass-types can be valuable. It's also the best option for baiting shields. Crabhammer benefits from STAB to deal very respectable damage, and is a direct improvement over Water Pulse.
While Kingler may be the King of Water DPS in PvE, it's the King of the Saltiest Losers in PvP. With heavily skewed stats leaning towards offense, Kingler has very little to offer in terms of bulk, which causes it numerous losses. The addition of Crabhammer isn't enough to offset Kingler's fragility, which rather unfortunate.
In Giratina's eyes, Kingler may very well look like king crab legs. It's got that nice seafood saltiness too.
I heard Dragons like crab legs too, maybe because it's already naturally seasoned with saltiness.
