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.

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.
