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.
Crystal It uses its tail to hang on to tree branches. It uses its momentum to swing from one branch to another.

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.
Platinum It lives high among the treetops. It can use its tail as freely and cleverly as its hands.
HeartGold Its tail is so powerful that it can use it to grab a tree branch and hold itself up in the air.

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.
Ultra Sun As it did more and more with its tail, its hands became clumsy. It makes its nest high in the treetops.
Ultra Moon It searches for prey from the tops of trees. When it spots its favorite food, Bounsweet, Aipom gets excited and pounces.
