Biology Info

Tentacruel is a cnidarian-type Pokémon. Its body is transparent and light blue, with two enormous red orbs on each side and a smaller orb in the middle. Its eyes are evident in its dark, spherical bottom body. Two blue, beak-like appendages and several grey tentacles protrude from its bottom body. Its red orbs light when it is enthusiastic or disturbed, communicating with its kind, and it may warn people of danger by flashing them loudly. They can also refract sunlight, store energy, and generate ultrasonic sounds.

Tentacruel’s bright blue body helps it blend in with its surroundings. It has a total of 80 tentacles that it can easily expand during hunts to trap its victim in a net-like structure before poisoning it. The tentacles may easily expand and contract. Its tentacles can absorb water, allowing them to expand even longer. The majority of these tentacles are kept concealed and short, leaving up to 14 visible. It does, however, lose tentacles as it matures. Tentacruel are seldom seen, but they may congregate in huge quantities, scaring away any surrounding fish Pokémon. Tentacruel may be found all over the ocean amid underwater rock formations.
