Pokédex entries

Red
Blue
Its tongue can be extended like a chameleon’s. It leaves a tingling sensation when it licks enemies.
Yellow Its tongue spans almost 7 feet and moves more freely than its forelegs. Its licks can cause paralysis.
Gold Its tongue has well-developed nerves that run to the very tip, so it can be deftly manipulated.
Silver Its long tongue, slathered with a gooey saliva, sticks to anything, so it is very useful.
Crystal It has a tongue that is over 6’6’’ long. It uses this long tongue to lick its body clean.
Ruby
Sapphire
Whenever LICKITUNG comes across something new, it will unfailingly give it a lick. It does so because it memorizes things by texture and by taste. It is somewhat put off by sour things.
FireRed Its tongue is twice the length of its body. It can be moved like an arm for grabbing food and attacking.
LeafGreen Its tongue can be extended like a chameleon’s. It leaves a tingling sensation when it licks enemies.
Emerald Whenever it sees something unfamiliar, it always licks the object because it memorizes things by texture and taste. It is somewhat put off by sour things.
Diamond
Pearl
Instead of hands, it uses its tongue, which is twice its height. Its sticky saliva grips anything.
Platinum When it extends its over-six-foot-long tongue, its tail quivers. There is a possibility they are connected.
HeartGold Its tongue has well-developed nerves that run to the very tip, so it can be deftly manipulated.
SoulSilver Its long tongue, slathered with a gooey saliva, sticks to anything, so it is very useful.
Black
White
When it extends its over-six-foot-long tongue, its tail quivers. There is a possibility they are connected.
Black 2
White 2
Being licked by its long, saliva-covered tongue leaves a tingling sensation. Extending its tongue retracts its tail.
X Its long tongue, slathered with a gooey saliva, sticks to anything, so it is very useful.
Y Its tongue is twice the length of its body. It can be moved like an arm for grabbing food and attacking.
Omega Ruby
Alpha Sapphire
Whenever Lickitung comes across something new, it will unfailingly give it a lick. It does so because it memorizes things by texture and by taste. It is somewhat put off by sour things.
Ultra Sun It checks out whatever’s around it by licking everything. If you don’t clean off a spot where it’s licked you, you’ll break out in a rash!
Ultra Moon It licks filth clean with its tongue. Whatever it licks always stinks afterward, so whether it’s really clean is...questionable.
Let's Go Pikachu
Let's Go Eevee
Its tongue spans almost seven feet and moves more freely than its forelegs. Its licks can cause paralysis.
Sword If this Pokémon’s sticky saliva gets on you and you don’t clean it off, an intense itch will set in. The itch won’t go away, either.
Shield Bug Pokémon are Lickitung’s main food source. This Pokémon paralyzes its prey with a lick from its long tongue, then swallows the prey whole.
