Just wondering, it's weird it doesn't make sense.

Tentacruel are large, primarily blue jellyfish-like Pokémon. They have two large, red crystal spheres encrusted onto their upper bodies that can refract sunlight and store energy. The round lower body, from which Tentacruel’s eyes are visible, appears black in coloration, but it is possible the coloration was meant to stylistically represent a dark space. It can extend up to 80 tentacles out of its body, most of which are hidden, leaving up to 14 exposed. It has two blue beak-like appendages.

Black Empoloen, i guess the 66 tentacles are hidden :)
Yes I agree
Well, my guess was right.
look at its spirits
Tentacruel is based of the real world Portuguese Man-of-war (a jellyfish like animal but not a true jellyfish) the Portuguese man-of-war has the ability to withdraw tenticals to increases speed or extend revile them to slowdown and catch more pray, even rip them off with no injury.
Tentacruel hides 66 out of 80 of its tenticals, no wonder its SPEED stat is so high.
Its good pokemon science.  =)
^ Neat fact.
