Tentacool is a pokemon from the Pokemon series, and it evolves into Tentacruel. It has an interesting evolution process that you may not know about! For example, it requires specific level conditions to evolve. You might be wondering what type of pokemon Tentacool is? What are its strengths and weaknesses? Is it a good pokemon or not so much? What level does Tentacool learn to surf? Does Tentacool look like an octopus? These questions will be answered in this guide!
Tentacool is a Water/Poison-type pokemon. It evolves into Tentacruel, which is also a water-type and poison-type Pokemon. What level does Tentacool evolve? Level 30! Where do you find Tentacool in the game? On Route 18 of Pokémon Red and Blue or on Routes 16 through 20 in Pokémon Gold, Silver & Crystal for Game Boy Color players. What are its strengths? Since it’s part Poison-type, it can easily cause status ailments to opponents by using moves like Toxic Spikes, Sludge Bomb, and Scald. These status effects make any pokemon much easier to take out with little effort! What about weaknesses though? If your opponent has an Electric attack then they will do extra damage to Tentacool. What level does Tentacool learn Surf?
How many weaknesses does Tentacruel have?
None! It only has two strengths – Grass and Electric moves won’t work against it, but Fire will because it’s part Poison-type plus the Water attacks that are strong against grass can also get an advantage if they’re used by a fire-type pokemon. Is Tentacool an octopus? No! But this is what people often think when you say “Tentacle” which means one of the eight arms or appendages attached to a central body of some sea life like jellyfish, squids, and even humans sometimes for certain medical operations. The word comes from a Latin root meaning ‘eight’ so the idea of tentacles was already around in Roman times, but Tentacool is just a type of Pokemon and not an octopus.
The level that Tentacool evolves depends on your trainer’s experience points. What does evolving do? Evolving will give you more health points than if you had stayed at the same level so it can take even more hits before being knocked out by enemies during battle! It also means its attacks are stronger too – like how much damage each attack would do to another pokemon or player when they’re battling against one another. For example, this is what happens with moves like Tackle which has less power than Shell Smash which has a lot more because of all those extra bonuses from leveling up to evolve into a Tentacool.
Tentacool is a water Pokemon, so it’s weak to electric attacks and strong against fire attacks. What does that mean? Fire has an advantage over Tentacools because they are made of water – but if you’re using Electric-type moves on them instead then it will do more damage! For example, Ampharos with its Thunderpunch would be able to take out a Pikachu which doesn’t have very many health points left at all.
Finally, this last thing about Tentacool is that when they evolve into one from staying as their previous level for too long without leveling up again or getting enough experience points in battle (which can happen if the trainer just uses one pokemon), there’s also the chance that they will turn into a Tentacruel.
Tentacools can be found all over the world, but in particular under water! They are not uncommon and you could find them just by looking at this list of places: Route 13, Fuchsia City, Pallet Town’s Safari Zone, Viridian Forest, Cinnabar Island, and Seafoam Islands. In these areas, there is also where to find its evolution form – the more powerful tentacular creature known as a Tentacruel! The only problem with catching one though is that their catch rate starts out low so it might take many different attempts before getting lucky enough to capture one.
