Gold It lies still in the same pose for days in its web, waiting for its unsuspecting prey to wander close.
Silver It spins a web using fine--but durable--thread. It then waits patiently for prey to be trapped.
Crystal If prey becomes ensnared in its nest of spun string, it waits motionlessly until it becomes dark.
Ruby
Sapphire

FireRed It spins a web using fine--but durable--thread. It then waits patiently for prey to be trapped.
LeafGreen It lies still in the same pose for days in its web, waiting for its unsuspecting prey to wander close.

Sun It waits intently until its preferred prey, Cutiefly, gets caught in its web. In fact, it’s quite a patient Pokémon.
Moon Some fishermen weave its sturdy thread into nets to catch fish Pokémon.
Ultra Sun With threads from its mouth, it fashions sturdy webs that won’t break even if you set a rock on them.
Ultra Moon Although the poison from its fangs isn’t that strong, it’s potent enough to weaken prey that gets caught in its web.
