BACKGROUND: Spikesters have a green shell that is covered in spikes. This makes them hard to attack, but luckily they are not very powerful. Spikesters usually start out as eggs thrown by Spinies, if one can say that there's anything usual about them.
The fact is, Spikesters seem to be a one-time mutation of the Green Spiny Eggs that Lakitus sometimes use. They are good climbers and therefore work well in mountain areas, but they can't stand low temperatures, which would make them suceptible in winter.
As already mentioned, the creatures seem to be kept as pets by some Lakitus. Not a lot else is known about them, since they seem to have disappeared after a brief appearance around the time Smithy invaded. This leads some to believe Smithy might be involved, but the Lakitus have strongly denied any dealing with Smithy.

OTHER BACKGROUND INFO:
The Spikesters provide an easy target and you never run out of them as long as Lakitu continues flying overhead, dropping them. -SMRPG Player's Guide
Lakitu floats above the first area of Booster Pass, dropping young Spikesters on unsuspecting plumbers below. As long as Lakitu remains free in the skies, there will be Spikesters to fight on the ground. You can use them to build up the experience of your party because you'll never run out of Spikesters. The Spikesters won't put up much of a fight and they give you six Experience Points each. If you want to get Lakitu for some reason, jump off one of the cliffs and attack him. - SMRPG Player's Guide.
