Huntail has the Swift Swim Ability. This Ability doubles its Speed Statistic while it is raining, but the Speed boost won't double on the same turn in which it starts to rain. A second Ability is available to Huntail from the Dream World, the Water Veil Ability. This Ability prevents it from being afflicted by a Burn.
Huntail is in the Water 1 Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Huntail about 600,000 Experience Points to reach Level 100.
Huntail takes the appearance of an eel with fangs lining its jaw and a fish-shaped tail.
Huntail doesn't have any visible differences to differentiate between male and female.
The only instance in which Huntail have been found in the wild is at Route 4 in Pokémon Black and Pokémon Black 2 by fishing at a Shaking Spot with the Super Rod, which is obtained after obtaining the National Pokédex.
In all other games in which a Huntail can be obtained, the only way to do so is by evolving a Clamperl.
Huntail appears at Endless Level 55, Forever Level 5 and Mr. Who's Den in Pokémon Trozei!.
Huntail can only be obtained by evolving a Clamperl in the first round of Mystery Dungeon games. In Explorers of Time, Explorers of Darkness & Explorers of Sky, Huntail can appear at Miracle Sea B1-B18 & DPB1-B4. Huntail is exclusive to Light Adventure Squad in Mystery Dungeon 3, appearing at Wave Seas 20F-27F.
Huntail appears at the Sea of Wailord in Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia. In Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs, Huntail appears in the Underwater Ruins portion of Canal Ruins on Sophian Island and the Eastern Sea's Undersea Cavern in the Bottom Right Dark Section in the Present. Like its pre-evolved form Clamperl, Huntail does not appear in the Past Missions.
Huntail can be found at Echo Valley Beach 1-3 in Pokémon Rumble Blast after completing the game.
Trading Card Game
Huntail appears in only three sets. It is listed as an Uncommon Card in the Great Encounters set, and as a Rare Card in the EX Hidden Legends and EX Legend Maker sets.
Wild Huntail appear in the film Pokémon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea, its lone appearance in the films to date.
Mr. Briney and Team Aqua both appear with a Huntail that each keep in their respective water tank in Chapter 192. Wild Huntail make appearances in Chapter 201 and 259, both of these appearances being flashbacks.
Huntail finds itself in the Never-Utilized and Over-Utilized Tiers of Competitive Battling. While it has great Attack and Defense Statistics and a usable Special Attack Statistic, Special sweeping is better done by Gorebyss. Shell Smash increases its sweeping potential.
Status Conditions will seriously hurt Huntail's capabilities, and if it is unable to KO its opponents quickly enough, it could find itself either KO'd or hit with a Status Condition. Also, once Huntail's defenses are lowered as a result of Shell Smash, priority moves will be able to finish off an already damaged Huntail.
While the combination of Shell Smash and Baton Pass is banned in the Never-Utilized Tier, it is allowed in the Over-Utilized Tier, hence its placement in this Tier, and it can also get rain support from a Politoed with Drizzle.
