Tentacruel is a dual-type Water/Poison Pokémon.

Pokédex entry

Pokédex entry
Tentacruel has large red orbs on its head. The orbs glow before lashing the vicinity with a harsh ultrasonic blast. This Pokémon's outburst creates rough waves around it.

Biology

Physiology

(From Bulbapedia ) 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, store energy, and fire ultrasonic waves. 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 weakens 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.
