Pokédex entries

Red
Blue
Uses its three brains to execute complex plans. While two heads sleep, one head stays awake.
Yellow One of DODUO's 2 heads splits to form a unique species. It runs close to 40 MPH in prairies.
Gold It collects data and plans three times as wisely, but it may think too much and become immobilized.
Silver If one of the heads gets to eat, the others will be satisfied, too, and they will stop squabbling.
Crystal An enemy that takes its eyes off any of the three heads--even for a second--will get pecked severely.
Ruby Watch out if DODRIO’s three heads are looking in three separate directions. It’s a sure sign that it is on its guard. Don’t go near this POKéMON if it’s being wary - it may decide to peck you.
Sapphire Apparently, the heads aren’t the only parts of the body that DODRIO has three of. It has three sets of hearts and lungs as well, so it is capable of running long distances without rest.
FireRed An odd species that is rarely found. The three heads respectively represent joy, sadness, and anger.
LeafGreen Uses its three brains to execute complex plans. While two heads sleep, one head is said to stay awake.
Emerald A peculiar POKéMON species with three heads. It vigorously races across grassy plains even in arid seasons with little rainfall.
