Just as a speculation, I feel that it may be able to walk around on its tiny legs, as I don't see any other use of them, and as it must be able to move during battles. -Professor DJM
Based on... Starfish?
What? Cradily (or lileep for that matter) Doesn't even remotely resemble a starfish... If anything they resemble some sort of coral... --Jake30502 13:34, 25 September 2007 (UTC)
It's based on a Sea Lily or Crinoid. A kind of filter feeding organism related to starfish and sea urchins-- Omastar14:48 25, September 2007
Yeah, I suppose that makes sense... But when I first read it, it just made it sound like it was based on a starfish... Not something related to one. Ah well...--Jake30502 21:36, 9 October 2007 (UTC)
Judging by the Pokédex entry and it's appearance, couldn't it also be based a little bit off a sea anemone? Diachronos 16:56, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

Cradily's Color change from Gen IV to Gen V
According to Lileep's page in trivia section "In Generation III and IV, Lileep's tentacles are an orange color. This was changed in Generation V to pink as it is in the official Ken Sugimori artwork. Its Shiny form retains the orange color."
The same is true for Cradily right?
