Tentacruel (Japanese: ドククラゲ Dokukurage) is a dual-type Water/Poison Pokémon.

It evolves from Tentacool starting at level 30.

Biology

Tentacruel is a large, primarily blue jellyfish-like Pokémon. It has two large, red crystal spheres encrusted in its upper body that can refract sunlight and store energy. The round lower body, from which Tentacruel’s eyes are visible, appears black. It can extend up to 80 tentacles out of its body. Most of these tentacles are hidden, leaving up to 14 exposed. It has two blue beak-like appendages.

Tentacruel’s tentacles can be freely elongated and shortened, and can absorb water to stretch to some length. The tentacles are normally kept short, but on hunts, they are extended to ensnare and immobilize prey. It weaks the prey by dosing it with a harsh toxin. Its red orbs glow when it grows excited or agitated, and it may alert others to danger by stridently flashing them. Tentacruel can be found throughout the ocean.

Trivia

  • In the Pokémon Red and Blue beta, Tentacruel was originally known as "Man O War".
  • Tentacruel's Crystal still sprite is different from that of Gold and Silver, making it one of few Pokémon to have three distinctly different sprites in Generation II.
  • Tentacruel appears in every regional Pokédex except the Unova Pokédex.

Origin

Tentacruel is similar to the Portuguese man o' war, which is not a jellyfish but a cluster of polyps. It also shares some characteristics of a squid.

Name origin

Tentacruel is a combination of tentacle and cruel or ruler (referencing it as the line's final evolutionary stage).

Dokukurage literally means 毒水母 (poison jellyfish).
