It is rumored that the ferocious warning markings on its belly differ from area to area.  The frightening patterns on its belly have been studied. Six variations have been confirmed.  Transfixing prey with the face-like pattern on its belly, it binds and poisons the frightened victim.  With a very vengeful nature, it wont give up the chase, no matter how far, once it targets its prey.  If it encounters an enemy, it raises its head, intimidating the opponent with the frightening pattern on its body.

Advantages: Grass, Bug
Disadvantages: Poison, Ground, Rock, Ghost
