Flavour Text
Ruby At first sight, POOCHYENA takes a bite at anything that moves. This POKéMON chases after prey until the victim becomes exhausted. However, it may turn tail if the prey strikes back.
Sapphire POOCHYENA is an omnivore - it will eat anything. A distinguishing feature is how large its fangs are compared to its body. This POKéMON tries to intimidate its foes by making the hair on its tail bristle out.
Emerald It savagely threatens foes with bared fangs. It chases after fleeing targets tenaciously. It turns tail and runs, however, if the foe strikes back.
Fire Red It has a very tenacious nature. Its acute sense of smell lets it chase a chosen prey without ever losing track.
Leaf Green It has a very tenacious nature. Its acute sense of smell lets it chase a chosen prey without ever losing track.
