Its sleek shape is perfect for swimming. It slashes prey with its claws and drains the body fluids.

Kabutops is one of the fossil Pokemon from Gen I, from the Dome Fossil. It evolves quite late, at level 40. Its face came out of hiding when it evolved. Its stance and the claw arm things reminds me of Scyther. Its head is flat and pretty big, it always seems rather top-heavy to me.
Stat-wise, it has good Attack and Defense. Its Speed is average, but it has Swift Swim as one of its abilities, so it could be quite fast in the Rain. Its type of Water/Rock is 4x weak to Grass, yet for some reason it can learn Absorb and Mega Drain.
