Araquanid is a water bubble-surrounded arachnoid Pokémon. The bulk of its body is dark gray, with yellow-green and light brown highlights. It has huge blue eyes with a paler wavy line running between them. It has brow-like light brown markings over its eyes. On top of its skull, it features three pointed blue bumps and four fang-like projections beneath. Both the bumps and its eyes have the ability to glow. Its abdomen had a light brown stripe along the middle of its back, crossed by two horizontal lines. Several light brown tendrils stretch out from its neck and attach to the bubble surrounding its head. A pale green spinneret protrudes from its abdomen. It has six bright green legs with transparent bubbles surrounding the joints. Its legs have dark gray tips.

The bubble surrounding Araquanid’s head serves as both a weapon and a protective shield. It will use it to headbutt adversaries, and little Pokémon may be pulled in and drowned. When Araquanid is not hungry, subdued prey may be kept within. It will, however, draw lesser Pokémon and precious objects within the bubble for safety.
