Ash's Torterra

Ash's Torterra about to use an attack

Torterra is a huge, four-legged turtle Pokémon. Torterra is mostly dark-green above the midsection. It has a dark-green shell on its back which is rimmed with a white band, its head and part of its body underneath its shell. Underneath its midsection Torterra's body is brown and appears to be wood or dirt, this includes its legs, although the three toes on each foot appear to be composed of rock. Its most noticeable feature is the tree which has evolved/grown from Turtwig's twig and Grotle's shrub. Three spiked rocks line its back, part of its shell appears to be covered in dirt, which gave the 'Terra' part of its name, meaning 'earth' in Latin. Torterra has a short, pointed tail. It has two silver spikes on either side of its huge head and a black, kite-shaped nose.

Evolution

Torterra is the evolved form of Grotle as of level 32. Torterra is the final evolution of Turtwig.
