Most of the Pencil Pusher's attacks involve writing since its head is shaped like a pencil.
Name of origin
A Pencil Pusher is an informal term for a person who does a large amount of paperwork. The Pencil Pusher's Japanese name, Karikarin (カリカリン) is derived from the Japanese onomatopoeia karikari (カリカリ) meaning crisp or grumpy, followed by n (ン).
