Wartortle is a Water-type Pokémon that evolves from Squirtle at Level 16 and evolves into Blastoise at Level 36.


Wartortle is a bipedal, indigo-blue Pokémon similar to a turtle. It has brown eyes, a dark blue streak on each cheek, and two sharp teeth protruding from its upper jaw. It has three clawed fingers and pointed toes. Bluish white fur covers its long ears and tail. A brown shell with a pale yellow underside encases its body. A thick, white rim separates the upper and lower halves of the shell.

As Wartortle ages, its tail fur will darken, and it may have algae growing on its shell. The shell may also carry scars from past battles.


It is said that Wartortle can live for 10,000 years.


Wartortle hides in water when hunting and emerges to surprise its prey.


The anime has shown that Wartortle can be found living in colonies on islands, but its preferred habitat seems to be freshwater ponds and lakes.


To maintain balance while swimming at high speeds, Wartortle moves its furry ears and tail.

Wartortle can use its fur to store air for extended underwater diving.
