Frillish is a jellyfish-like Pokémon that looks like a young king. It features a circular head with a crown-like tuft and five tentacle-like appendages: two as arms and three as the bottom half of its body, regardless of gender. It has white pupils in its round eyes and a collar around its neck. It possesses poison spikes on its appendages that are not visible. It is blue as a male, with smooth appendages and a triangular cap. It has red eyes with blue sclerae and a straight eyelash on each eye, a wavy collar, and it looks to be frowning, yet it seldom smiles in the anime. It is pink as a female, with wavy appendages and a spherical crown. It features blue eyes with crimson sclerae and a curled eyelash on each eye, a frilled collar, and a smile. Male Frillish have larger collars and somewhat longer stingers than female Frillish.

Frillish is a hadopelagic Pokémon that dwells in dens approximately 5 miles (8 kilometers) below sea level. As a result, it can withstand very dark and high-pressure marine conditions. It is carnivorous, floating about in the waves until it can hit its target. It numbs its prey with its poison spikes and drags it to its underground cave. Tens of thousands of venomous stingers cover its arms. According to tradition, Frillish were born from converted people of a drowned old city. Frillish hunts Magikarp and Lanturn.
