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, resembling blue pincers. Also, as seen in the image above, Tentacruel has two huge eyes below its head.

Natural 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.

Appearances

Anime

During Tentacool & Tentacruel, Team Rocket causes a Tentacruel to grow to an enormous size. Wanting revenge on the destruction of its home, it goes off to destroy everything in its path, but Misty manages to stop Tentacruel and saves the day.

Trivia

  • Tentacruel is said to have 80 tentacles but only ten are often seen.

Origin

Tentacruel is based on a jellyfish with elements of squid and a man o' war. It may also incorporate elements of UFOs or possibly Metroids from the Metroid series (the red spots being the nuclei).

Etymology

Tentacruel is a portmanteau of "tentacle" and "cruel."

Dokukurage literally means "poison jellyfish." ==See also==
