Generation III
Ruby Spheal is much faster rolling than walking to get around. When groups of this Pokémon eat, they all clap at once to show their pleasure. Because of this, their mealtimes are noisy.
Sapphire Spheal always travels by rolling around on its ball-like body. When the season for ice floes arrives, this Pokémon can be seen rolling about on ice and crossing the sea.
Emerald It is completely covered with plushy fur. As a result, it never feels the cold even when it is rolling about on ice floes or diving in the sea.
FireRed Its body is covered in fluffy fur. The fur keeps it from feeling cold while it is rolling on ice.
LeafGreen Its body is covered in fluffy fur. The fur keeps it from feeling cold while it is rolling on ice.
Generation IV
Diamond It rolls across ice floes to reach shore because its body is poorly shaped for swimming.
