Drifts in shallow seas. Anglers who hook them by accident are often punished by its stinging acid.
Yellow It can sometimes be found all dry and shriveled up on a beach. Toss it back into the sea to revive it.
Gold When the tide goes out, dehydrated TENTACOOL remains can be found washed up on the shore.
Silver It drifts aimlessly in waves. Very difficult to see in water, it may not be noticed until it stings.
Crystal As it floats along on the waves, it uses its toxic feelers to stab anything it touches.
Ruby TENTACOOL’s body is largely composed of water. If it is removed from the sea, it dries up like parchment. If this POKéMON happens to become dehydrated, put it back into the sea.
Sapphire TENTACOOL absorbs sunlight and refracts it using water inside its body to convert it into beam energy. This POKéMON shoots beams from its crystal-like eyes.
FireRed Its eyes are as transparent as crystals. From them, it shoots mysterious beams of light.
LeafGreen Drifts in shallow seas. Anglers who hook them by accident are often punished by their stingers.
Emerald Its body is almost entirely composed of water. It ensnares its foe with its two long tentacles, then stabs with the poison stingers at their tips.
Diamond Its body is virtually composed of water. It shoots strange beams from its crystal-like eyes.
Pearl It drifts in sea currents. Countless fishermen are hurt by its poison stingers.
Platinum Because its body is almost entirely composed of water, it shrivels up if it is washed ashore.
HeartGold When the tide goes out, dehydrated TENTACOOL remains can be found washed up on the shore.
SoulSilver It drifts aimlessly in waves. Very difficult to see in water, it may not be noticed until it stings.
