 Ekans and Team Rocket
  • Red/Blue: Moves silently and stealthily. Eats the eggs of birds, such as Pidgey and Spearow, whole.

  • Yellow: The older it gets, the longer it grows. At night, it wraps its long body around tree branches to rest.

  • Gold: It can freely detach it jaw to swallow large prey whole. It can become too heavy to move, however.
