Fire Pinchees became famous during the 284th Astromon League. A master named J. Wikin drew much attention and even more ridicule after submitting his party formation with a fire Pinchee included. Most crowd members assumed he wouldn't make it past the first round.
However, much to the crowd's surprise, that small fire Pinchee, with its little pincers and follow its master's brilliant stratagems, brought many powerful Astromon to their knees, together with their masters.
The young Pinchee became the subject of many anecdotes and even legends before it eventually retired. It was only then that it evolved into an even more formidable Astromon.

Most people that hear the name "Pinchee" picture the water Astromons that live near the ocean, but there are also wood Pinchees that inhabit forests and meadows, cultivating their own unique ecological systems.
Wood Horncrabs can often be spotted using their claws to climb trees, usually in an attempt to escape a predator. Sometimes, however, they make the difficult climb up in order to taste a tree's fruit, which unwavering diligence has inspired many a spectator.
Wood Crabigors use their shell's natural color as camouflage, and will stand still with their heads hidden until danger passes them by.
