Game Dex Flavor Text
United States Shield This weak and pathetic Pokémon gets easily pushed along rivers when there are strong currents.
United States Sword It is virtually worthless in terms of both power and speed. It is the most weak and pathetic Pokémon in the world.
United States Stadium2 An underpowered, pathetic Pokémon. It may jump high on rare occasions, but never more then seven feet.
Japan Stadium あいてが どんなポケモンでも どんなに  おそろしい わざを しかけようとも ただ はねる。
United States Stadium Whoever its opponent, and however horrible the attack it receives, all it does is Splash around.
United States Red In the distant past, it was somewhat stronger than the horribly weak descendants that exist today.
United States Blue In the distant past, it was somewhat stronger than the horribly weak descendants that exist today.

United States Silver For no reason, it jumps and splashes about, making it easy for predators like Pidgeotto to catch it mid-jump.
