Tentacool’s body is largely composed of water. If it is removed from the sea, it dries up like parchment. If this Pokémon happens to become dehydrated, put it back into the sea. Tentacool drifts in shallow seas, and as it floats along on the waves, it uses its toxic feelers to stab anything it touches.

Anglers who hook them by accident are often punished by their stingers. It ensnares its foe with its two long tentacles, then stabs with the poison stingers at their tips.

It shoots strange beams from its crystal-like eyes.
