Torterra is a Torterra (former Turtwig and Grotle) owned by Ash Ketchum.


Torterra as a Turtwig

Similar to Bulbasaur, Torterra is helpful when taking care of sick or injured Pokémon. If there was feud, Torterra would be the one to break it up.

Torterra as a Grotle

Torterra is quite stubborn and will not give up, no matter how hard the challenge, another trait it shares with Bulbasaur.

Torterra has been shown to be a little reckless at times.

Turtwig was quite affectionate, showing this by biting Ash's head (and rarely other people), but appears to have stopped this after evolving into Grotle.

Battle Skills[]

As Turtwig, Torterra was incredibly fast and based its battle style around this, even more so after seeing Gardenia's Turtwig's speed. However, in Aiding the Enemy! Turtwig evolved into Grotle during a battle against Paul's Honchkrow. It quickly became apparent that, due to its new body being larger and heavier, Grotle's speed had diminished, and Grotle fumbled and fell down a lot in the battle.

Grotle had high expectations of itself. During the night, it went out to try to regain its speed. However, it kept stumbling and hurting itself. This was initially upsetting for Grotle, but Paul's Torterra provided some unexpected help by showing Grotle that it could rely on defense instead.

Through learning Rock Climb, Grotle managed to regain some of its lost speed.

Turtwig was quite physically strong, strong enough to use Bite on Roark's Rampardos's tail and throw it into a rock, after which Brock said, "Big things come in small packages!"
