Pokédex entries

Gold The tip of its tail, which contains oil that is lighter than water, lets it swim without drowning.
Silver The end of its tail serves as a buoy that keeps it from drowning, even in a vicious current.
Crystal The fur on its body naturally repels water. It can stay dry, even when it plays in the water.
Ruby MARILL’s oil-filled tail acts much like a life preserver. If you see just its tail bobbing on the water’s surface, it’s a sure indication that this POKéMON is diving beneath the water to feed on aquatic plants.
Sapphire When fishing for food at the edge of a fast-running stream, MARILL wraps its tail around the trunk of a tree. This POKéMON’s tail is flexible and configured to stretch.
FireRed The end of its tail serves as a buoy that keeps it from drowning, even in a vicious current.
LeafGreen The tip of its tail, which contains oil that is lighter than water, lets it swim without drowning.
Emerald Its body is covered with water-repellent fur. Because of the fur, it can swim through water at high speed without being slowed by the water’s resistance.
Diamond Using its tail as a float, it dives underwater. It likes eating plants that grow on river bottoms.
Pearl The tip of its tail is filled with oil that is lighter than water, so it acts as a float.
Platinum The oil-filled end of its tail floats on water. It keeps MARILL from drowning even in a strong current.
HeartGold The tip of its tail, which contains oil that is lighter than water, lets it swim without drowning.
SoulSilver The end of its tail serves as a buoy that keeps it from drowning, even in a vicious current.

The oil-filled tail functions as a buoy, so it’s fine even in rivers with strong currents.
X The fur on its body naturally repels water. It can stay dry, even when it plays in the water.
Y The tip of its tail is filled with oil that is lighter than water, so it acts as a float.
Omega Ruby Marill’s oil-filled tail acts much like a life preserver. If you see just its tail bobbing on the water’s surface, it’s a sure indication that this Pokémon is diving beneath the water to feed on aquatic plants.
Alpha Sapphire When fishing for food at the edge of a fast-running stream, Marill wraps its tail around the trunk of a tree. This Pokémon’s tail is flexible and configured to stretch.
Sword This Pokémon uses its round tail as a float. The ball of Marill’s tail is filled with nutrients that have been turned into an oil.
Shield Even after Marill swims in a cold sea, its water- repellent fur dries almost as soon as Marill leaves the water. That’s why this Pokémon is never cold.
