Flavour Text
Ruby CHINCHOU lets loose positive and negative electrical charges from its two antennas to make its prey faint. This POKéMON flashes its electric lights to exchange signals with others.
Sapphire CHINCHOU's two antennas are filled with cells that generate strong electricity. This POKéMON's cells create so much electrical power, it even makes itself tingle slightly.
Emerald When it senses danger, it discharges positive and negative electricity from its two antennae. It lives in depths beyond sunlight's reach.
Fire Red On the dark ocean floor, its only means of communication is its constantly flashing lights.
Leaf Green It shoots positive and negative electricity between the tips of its two antennae and zaps its enemies.
