Binacle is a Pokémon that looks like a goose barnacle. It also resembles a hand and an arm, with the “hand” serving as its head. It has a brown head with big orange cheeks and an orange marking where the nose would be. Three lengthy claws protrude from the top of its skull. It has an orange body with a white ring around the centre.

Binacles are usually discovered in a couple living in a single gray rock and must work together to live. It moves by tugging the rock along in a jumping manner, stretching and contracting its bodies. The duo has a habit of quarrelling with one another. When this happens, one of them will relocate to a new rock with a different Binacle to live with. Binacle feeds on seaweed that washes up on the beach.
