Pokédex entries

Red
Blue
Its massive bones are 1000 times harder than human bones. It can easily knock a trailer flying.
Yellow A POKéMON with a one-track mind. Once it charges, it won't stop running until it falls asleep.
Gold It is inept at turning because of its four short legs. It can only charge and run in one direction.
Silver It doesn't care if there is anything in its way. It just charges and destroys all obstacles.
Crystal It can remember only one thing at a time. Once it starts rushing, it forgets why it started.
Ruby RHYHORN runs in a straight line, smashing everything in its path. It is not bothered even if it rushes headlong into a block of steel. This POKéMON may feel some pain from the collision the next day, however.
Sapphire RHYHORN’s brain is very small. It is so dense, while on a run it forgets why it started running in the first place. It apparently remembers sometimes if it demolishes something.
FireRed Strong, but not too bright, this POKéMON can shatter even a skyscraper with its charging TACKLES.
LeafGreen Its massive bones are 1,000 times harder than human bones. Its TACKLE can knock a semitrailer flying.
Emerald Once it starts running, it doesn’t stop. Its tiny brain makes it so stupid that it can’t remember why it started running in the first place.
Diamond
Pearl
Its body is clad in a thick hide, and its tackles topple buildings. Unfortunately, it is not smart.
Platinum Its powerful tackles can destroy anything. However, it is too slow witted to help people work.
HeartGold It is inept at turning because of its four short legs. It can only charge and run in one direction.
SoulSilver It doesn’t care if there is anything in its way. It just charges and destroys all obstacles.
