This Totodile is a Water-typePokémon owned by Ash. It was captured by Ash using his Lure Ball, making him the only one of Ash's Pokémon that has never been inside an ordinary Poké Ball.
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.
Ash left it at Professor Oak's lab as he decided to make a fresh start when he left for Hoenn.
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.
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 was fought over for its ownership by Ash and Misty.
Totodile is Ash's only Johto starter that hasn't evolved at least once.
Totodile and Ash's 30 Tauros are the only Pokémon to be caught in different types of Poké Balls; however Totodile was captured and is kept in a Lure Ball and Ash used Safari Balls to catch his Tauros, but whenever Ash uses one in battle, they seem to be kept in normal Poke Balls.
