Tentacruel (Japanese: ドククラゲ Dokukurage) is a Water/Poison-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

Biology

Physiology

Tentacruel has only a few differences from its pre-evolved form. It now has 14 long tentacles. It also has a beak; the mouthparts are on the front and back of Tentacruel's head. Also, as seen in the image above, Tentacruel has Two Huge eyes below its head.

Special abilities

Tentacruel can have the ability Clear Body or the ability Liquid Ooze. Clear Body prevents the opponent from lowering any of Tentacruel's stats. Liquid Ooze damages any opponent that tries to drain Tentacruel's HP. With 80 tentacles for ensnaring victims, it prevents escape until the prey is weakened by poison.

Evolution

Tentacruel evolves from Tentacool at level 30.
