Tentacool and Tentacruel by RtRadke Tentacool and Tentacruel by RtRadke
Squid and Jellyfish are actually very different animals so it was sort of hard to combine the two. I think they turned out all right.

Edit: According to Bulbapedia, tentacruel has 80 tentacles. Oh well, maybe I'll add more if I ever color him.

Fun fact:
One of Tentacruel's original names was 'Man o War'.

Actually the original name for Tentacruel was intended to be Man O War, so that makes sense.

Cool.
I never thought that tentacool could ever look kind of "kawaii".
And now I understand that when tentacruel was being developed, it was some kind of a crossing between a crab and jellyfish/squid

Heh heh, that's cool. I like tentacool's eyes. And jellyfish are clear, so that would mean you'd see all the neural-connecters from its eyes to its brain if it had eyes (because real jellyfish have neither).

The dex may describe tentacruel as having a bajillion tentacles, but looking at it, the pokemon only has fourteen.

Bloop!

Hmm...I'd say Tentacool reminds me of Dogora while Tentacruel could be like an up-grade/adult form. Just keep them away from bees O_o

wow the Tentacuel is perfect! the original name for Tentacruelw as gonna be Man-O-War, because of it's resemblance to the Portugese Man-O-War. but the funny thing is: man-o-wars are not jellyfish. they're siphonophores.

Thanks. I based tentacruel on a man-o-war as far as shape, though technically these would be more like squid based on the eyes and beak.

a few types of jellyfish actually possess eyes. the box jellyfish no less. the eyes are located on the 4 corners at the bottom of their bell's.
