Trapinch is an insectoid Pokémon that is orange in color. It has four stumpy legs and a spherical body with a white underside. It also features a zigzagging lips, tiny black eyes with twinkle-shaped pupils, and a proportionately huge head.

The enormous jaws of Trapinch are strong enough to smash stones. It thrives in dry deserts and can survive for a week without water. Rather of actively pursuing prey, it burrows into the sand to construct bowl- or cone-shaped nests in which it waits for animals to slip within and get caught. Trapinch moves slowly because to the weight of its enormous head, yet it becomes susceptible after falling or rolling onto their backs. Sandile is its natural predator.
