Barbaracle is a bipedal Pokémon whose body is made up of two gray pebbles joined by an orange, segmented waist. It has four orange arms that attach to the top rock. Its brown head is shaped like a left hand, with four clawed fingers on top and a clawed thumb on its right cheek. It has an orange face with two eyes but no other distinguishing traits. Each arm has a brown hand with a single eye in the palm, four lengthy claws, and a brown ring around the middle. It has orange legs with two brown bands and brown feet with four claws and a four-pointed star on the soles.

Two Binacles have multiplied into seven via evolution. Each limb thinks and moves separately, however they normally obey the directions of the brain. Because each leg contains an eye, it can look in all directions at the same time.
