Tentacruel appear strikingly similar to the Martians from War of The Worlds. Should this be reflected in the trivia section, or is it a coincidence?- unsigned comment from Zankou (talkcontribs)

- i would go for coincidence...

What do people think of tentacruel being one of only 3 pokemon in 1st generation to learn barrier? - perhaps squad-worthy material in this light methinks :)?- unsigned comment from Clay1st (talkcontribs)


Tentacool is catchable in Platinum. I don't know how the tables on this wiki work, so I'm going to leave it, but Tentacruel is obtainable through evolution. King Neoterikos 05:56, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

Route 42 in HGSS

This article says that Tentacruel is catchable on Route 42 in HGSS but the Route 42 article makes no mention of either Tentacruel or Tentacool. So can they be caught there or not? --Kitsunegami 07:10, 22 August 2010 (UTC)


Why are we using this horrible blocky RG image as the main image, and not the crisp clear match-all-the-other-g1-pokemon Firered/Leafgreen pic that we have?Bug Catcher Wade 18:38, 1 September 2010 (UTC)

Because it is Red and Blue's birthday. Blake Talk·Edits 18:50, 1 September 2010 (UTC)

Gen V sprite

I just noticed this, Tentacruel's fifth gen sprite has tenacales that are of a purplish hue. Should this be in the trivia section? AshKetchumNo.1 13:26, 10 August 2011 (UTC)

yea, the Gen V sprites show it with blackish tenticles, unlike the gen III and IV sprites. Plokool 01:35, 28 November 2011 (UTC)

HM07 Waterfall

Can I get some clarification on whether Tentacruel can actually learn HM07 Waterfall in Gen II, because the one I have can't for some reason. I have video proof, where I select Tentacruel in my party (nicknamed "Octiva"), then attempt to teach it HM07 Waterfall: (MP4 video recording of Pokémon Silver located on my Google Drive) - It is Lv.20 (caught it as is without training it), so perhaps it has to be a certain level before it can be taught?

It can't, as can already be seen on its Gen 2 learnset page. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 16:10, 18 April 2014 (UTC)
Understood; should it be removed from the Waterfall page then? --Neohylanmay (talk) 16:32, 18 April 2014 (UTC)
Done. Thanks for pointing that out. (As a side note, please use link templates, such as {{m|Waterfall}} for moves rather than just [[Waterfall]]. This adds the correct parenthetical suffix to the link.) Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 16:38, 18 April 2014 (UTC)
