Gold Its tail is so powerful that it can use it to grab a tree branch and hold itself up in the air.
Silver It lives atop tall trees. When leaping from branch to branch, it deftly uses its tail for balance.

AIPOM’s tail ends in a hand-like appendage that can be cleverly manipulated. However, because the POKéMON uses its tail so much, its real hands have become rather clumsy.
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.
Diamond It uses its tail to pluck fruits that are out of reach. Its tail is more adept than its real hands.
Pearl It lives atop giant trees. It wraps its tail around a branch so it won’t fall off while asleep.
