Pokédex entries

Gold It is actually timid and easily spooked. If attacked, it flails about to fend off its attacker.
Silver Because its fangs are too heavy, it always keeps its head tilted down. However, its BITE is powerful.
Crystal It can make most any POKéMON run away simply by opening its mouth wide to reveal its big fangs.
Ruby
Sapphire
GRANBULL has a particularly well-developed lower jaw. The enormous fangs are heavy, causing the POKéMON to tip its head back for balance. Unless it is startled, it will not try to bite indiscriminately.
FireRed Because its fangs are too heavy, it always keeps its head tilted down. However, its BITE is powerful.
LeafGreen It is actually timid and easily spooked. If attacked, it flails about to fend off its attacker.
Emerald It has a particularly well-developed lower jaw. The huge fangs are heavy, causing it to tilt its head. Unless it is startled, it will not try to bite.
Diamond

Platinum
It is timid in spite of its looks. If it becomes enraged, however, it will strike with its huge fangs.
HeartGold It is actually timid and easily spooked. If attacked, it flails about to fend off its attacker.
SoulSilver Because its fangs are too heavy, it always keeps its head tilted down. However, its bite is powerful.

Granbull has a particularly well-developed lower jaw. The enormous fangs are heavy, causing the Pokémon to tip its head back for balance. Unless it is startled, it will not try to bite indiscriminately.
Sun Its well-developed lower jaw and heavy fangs are its weapons. As long as it’s not provoked, it rarely bites.
Moon More timid than Snubbull, this Pokémon is doted on by young people amused at the contrast between its looks and its attitude.
Ultra Sun While it has powerful jaws, it doesn’t care for disputes, so it rarely has a chance to display their might.
Ultra Moon Although it’s popular with young people, Granbull is timid and sensitive, so it’s totally incompetent as a watchdog.
