ItGoldeen has a wild temperament, and will use its horn to smash its way to freedom if kept in an aquarium. It competes with others of its kind to determine which has the strongest, thickest horn. Humans swimming near it must exercise caution lest Goldeen ram them. Goldeen is a very common sight in any body of {{DL|List of Pokémon by habitat|Water's-edge Pokémon|fresh water}}, including ponds, lakes, and rivers.
