Title Entry
First Pokémon generation
Pokémon Red and Blue If it fails to crush the victim in its pincers, it will swing it around and toss it hard.
Pokémon Yellow Grips its prey in its pincers and squeezes hard! It can't move if it's cold, so it lives in warm places.
Pokémon Stadium Grips and tears at its enemy with the two pincers on its head. Enemies with hard bodies are gripped and tossed.
Second Pokémon generation
Pokémon Gold With its horns, it digs burrows to sleep in at night. In the morning, damp soil clings to its body.
Pokémon Silver Swings its long antlers wildly to attack. During cold periods, it hides deep in forests.

Third Pokémon generation
Pokémon Ruby Pinsir is astoundingly strong. It can grip a foe weighing twice its weight in its horns and easily lift it. This Pokémon's movements turn sluggish in cold places.
Pokémon Sapphire Pinsir has a pair of massive horns. Protruding from the surface of these horns are thorns. These thorns are driven deeply into the foe's body when the pincer closes, making it tough for the foe to escape.
Pokémon Emerald Their pincers are strong enough to shatter thick logs. Because they dislike cold, Pinsir burrow and sleep under the ground on chilly nights.
Pokémon FireRed Its two long pincer horns are powerful. Once they grip an enemy, they won't release until the foe is torn.
