Tentacool (Japaneseメノクラゲ Menokurage) is a dual-type Water/Poison Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

It evolves into Tentacruel starting at level 30.

Biology

 
Tentacool possessing a Meowth

Tentacool is a small, jellyfish-like Pokémon. It has a light blue, clear body with two large, transparent, red crystals on each side of its body and one small one in the middle. Near the base of its body is a pointed, beak-like projection and two eyes with small pupils. There are two grayish tentacles extending from beneath its round lower body, which has a cape-like formation on the back.

Tentacool's entire body is made of 99% water, and the remaining 1% contains the organ that produces its poison. It absorbs sunlight and refracts it using the water inside its body to convert it into beam energy. Its tentacles are laced with stinging cells and, as seen in the anime, it can control Pokémon it touches with its tentacles. The tentacles break off occasionally, but they can regenerate. The poison from its tentacles is so potent, that someone would need to be immediately rushed to the hospital. Tentacool is not a very strong swimmer, traveling throughout the world using ocean currents. Tentacool searches for food while drifting on the surface of shallow seas. Tentacool can blend in the water, making it very difficult to spot. It will sometimes wash ashore and shrivel up due to dehydration, though it remains equally as dangerous. Tentacool may be revived if thrown back into the sea.

Trivia

  • In the Pokémon Red and Blue beta, Tentacool was originally known as "Jilly".
  • Tentacool was the first Generation IV hybrid glitch Pokémon to be discovered.

Origin

Tentacool seems to be based on a jellyfish, possibly a species of box jellyfish such as Chironex fleckeri or Carukia barnesi. The fact that it has only two tentacles may be based on squid. Tentacool also resembles several varieties of the bug-eyed monster and other alien invaders from 1950s B-movies, which is reflected in its ability to fire lasers from the gems on its head.

Name origin

Tentacool is a combination of tentacle and cool.

Menokurage may be a combination of 目の敵 menokataki (enemy) and 水母 kurage (jellyfish). Alternatively, it may be a pun on the expression 目の毒 menodoku ("poison to the eye", referring to a tempting thing but one that must not be looked at), considering that its evolution's name is ドククラゲ dokukurage.
