Flavour Text
Ruby NINETALES casts a sinister light from its bright red eyes to gain total control over its foe's mind. This POKéMON is said to live for a thousand years.
Sapphire Legend has it that NINETALES came into being when nine wizards possessing sacred powers merged into one. This POKéMON is highly intelligent - it can understand human speech.
Emerald It has long been said that each of the nine tails embody an enchanted power. A long-lived NINETALES will have fur that shines like gold.
Fire Red It has nine long tails and fur that gleams gold. It is said to live for 1,000 years.
Leaf Green Very smart and very vengeful. Grabbing one of its many tails could result in a 1,000-year curse.
