Totodile is jolly, playful and really likes to dance. It has even been known to use this dancing tactic to help win battles, it has also proven to be a strong Pokémon in battles, although its endurance was not very high but it made up for this with its impressive dodging abilities.
Totodile first appeared in The Totodile Duel. Since Misty also wanted it, she and Ash decided to battle in order to determine who's it was. Ash won the battle.
Totodile reappeared in An Old Family Blend, where it had gone missing from its Lure Ball, like Ash's other Pokémon. Totodile was found dancing in the fountain, where it bit Ash's head.
