Pokédex entries

Ruby CHIMECHO makes its cries echo inside its hollow body. When this POKéMON becomes enraged, its cries result in ultrasonic waves that have the power to knock foes flying.
Sapphire In high winds, CHIMECHO cries as it hangs from a tree branch or the eaves of a building using a suction cup on its head. This POKéMON plucks berries with its long tail and eats them.

Emerald They fly about very actively when the hot season arrives. They communicate among themselves using seven different and distinguishing cries.
Diamond To knock foes flying, it makes the air shudder with its cries. It converses using seven cries.
Pearl Emitting ultrasonic cries, it floats on winds to travel great distances.
Platinum Its cries echo inside its hollow body to emerge as beautiful notes for startling and repelling foes.
