Special abilitiesEdit

Tentacool absorbs sunlight and refracts it using water inside its body to convert it into beam energy, as seen in the episode Tentacool and Tentacruel. It is also able to control Pokémon it touches with its tentacles.


This Pokémon shoots beams from its crystal-like eyes, and are often found floating in shallow waters.


Tentacool can be found throughout the ocean, usually congregating in places where warm currents and cold currents come together, and where minerals are plentiful. They are extremely common in Kanto, Johto, Hoenn and Sinnoh.
