Tentacool (Japanese: メノクラゲ Menokurage ) is a Water/Poison-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

Biology

Appearance

Tentacool is an aquatic Pokémon based on the box jellyfish. Tentacool have two long tentacles that extend from the base of its large, blue head. There are three red gems on this Pokémon's head: two on the sides of its head and one on its forehead.

Behavior

It drifts aimlessly wherever the ocean currents take it, sometimes ending up in shallow waters where it may be accidentally caught in fishing lines. Tentacool may also end up stuck on beaches when low tide comes; since its body is largely composed of water, it will shrivel up, risking death from dehydration if it stays out of the sea for too long. Tentacool has two main weapons. At the tips of its tentacles are toxic feelers, which it uses to stab anything it touches with stinging acid. Due to its excellent camouflage in the water, Tentacool can often remain undetected by swimmers right up to the moment it stings them. Tentacool's gelatinous, watery body can also absorb sunlight and refract it within, producing beam energy it shoots from its crystal-like eyes.

Special Abilities

Tentacool can have the ability Clear Body or the ability Liquid Ooze. Clear Body prevents the opponent from lowering Tentacool's stats. Liquid Ooze damages any opponent who attempts to drain Tentacool's HP. Its body is virtually composed of water. It also shoots strange beams from its crystals on its head.

Evolution

Tentacool evolves into Tentacruel at level 30.

In the anime
