Pokédex entries

Pokémon Red and Blue / Pokémon LeafGreen
The fluid that oozes from its mouth isn't drool. It is a nectar that is used to attract prey.
Pokémon Yellow
Smells incredibly foul! However, around 1 out of 1,000 people enjoy sniffing its nose-bending stink.
Pokémon Gold
What appears to be drool is actually sweet honey. It is very sticky and clings stubbornly if touched.
Pokémon Silver
It secretes a sticky, drool-like honey. Although sweet, it smells too repulsive to get very close.
Pokémon Crystal
The smell from its drool-like syrup and the pollen on its petals is so bad, it may make opponents faint.
Pokémon Ruby
Gloom releases a foul fragrance from the pistil of its flower. When faced with danger, the stench worsens. If this Pokémon is feeling calm and secure, it does not release its usual stinky aroma.
Pokémon Emerald
A horribly noxious honey drools from its mouth. One whiff of the honey can result in memory loss. Some fans are said to enjoy this overwhelming stink, however.
Pokémon FireRed
Its pistils exude an incredibly foul odor. The horrid stench can cause fainting at a distance of 1.25 miles.
