It digs through mountains in search of coal, which it stuffs in the vents and burns inside its shell for energy. The vents can be used to blow out volcanic ash when Torkoal is in danger or angry, providing a smoke screen for its retreat. It may also blow smoke through its nostrils, sounding very like a locomotive. It consumes extra coal to prepare for a battle, but grows weaker as its fire dies down.

Torkoal (Japanese: コータス Kotasu) is a Fire-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

BiologyEdit

PhysiologyEdit

Torkoal is a rust-red tortoise whose black shell has seven coal vents.

Special abilitiesEdit

It digs through mountains in search of coal, which it stuffs in the vents and burns inside its shell for energy. The vents can be used to blow out volcanic ash when Torkoal is in danger or angry, providing a smoke screen for its retreat. It may also blow smoke through its nostrils, sounding very like a locomotive. It consumes extra coal to prepare for a battle, but grows weaker as its fire dies down.

Torkoal is the second of the "turtle trio", which, like the "starter Pokémon" for each game version, has one Water-Type, one Fire-type, and one Grass-Type representative. Like its cousins Blastoise and Torterra, it can withdraw into its hard shell to protect itself. It has the White Smoke ability.

EvolutionEdit

Torkoal does not evolve.
