FireRed It lives atop tall trees. When leaping from branch to branch, it deftly uses its tail for balance.
LeafGreen Its tail is so powerful that it can use it to grab a tree branch and hold itself up in the air.
Emerald Its tail ends with a dexterous, handlike appendage. However, because it uses the tail so much, AIPOM’s real hands have become rather clumsy.
